  • Correct SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps for a Doorway Measuring 28.5" from Flange to Flange
  • When measuring your doorway to select the correct steps you will need to measure from flange to flange, not the entire doorway. Since you get a measurement of 28-1/2" flange to flange, the correct steps will be the SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps # LC791572 which fit doorway widths of 25" - 28-7/8" and height of 27" - 36". Not the # LC791573 which would be too wide for your doorway.

  • How to Find Replacement for Motorhome Steps
  • I was unable to find any reference to motorhome step with the part number 725-0041 or a direct replacement, but I can tell you what you'll need to know in order to find a replacement. To find the correct replacement steps for your motorhome you are going to need to measure to ensure you have enough room for the mounting plate to fit. For example, the Kwikee 23 Series Electric Steps - Triple # LC3694042 has a mounting bracket dimension of 26-5/16" wide x 10-1/2" deep and bolt pattern...

  • Correct Replacement for Kwikee Steps 903206000
  • I really appreciate all the information as well as the photos. After doing some research, I found that the exact replacement for your Kwikee steps with model number 903206000 are indeed the Kwikee 32 Series Electric RV Double Steps # LC372261. I also was able to confirm this with my contact at Lippert. So, why then are your steps measuring taller than the specs listed for the # LC372261? Well, after 17 years of use, it's only understandable that the weight being repeatedly applied...

  • Which Generation is the SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps LC791575
  • The third generation (3.0) SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps are what we currently have in stock and the ones you will receive. The review video you are referring to on the second generation (2.0) was carried over to the product page for the third generation because the only change that was made was to the design of the side rails which doesn't really affect function. The correct way to measure for the SolidStep is from the frame to frame (see photo) of the trailer door and round up to...

  • Smallest Size Doorway Opening for SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps LC791572
  • The SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps part # LC791572 will fit a door way from 25" -28.9" wide when measuring the frame inside. If the factory label sticker shows a doorway width between 26"-29" then the above steps will work for you just be sure to verify the threshold is between 27"-36". I have attached a photo below to assist.

  • How to Correctly Measure for Trailer Steps
  • In order to find the correct fit, you are going to have to do a little measuring. You will want to start by measuring the width of your current step assembly, followed by the height from step to step. After that, you will want to measure from the center of the step assembly at the crossbar to the diagonal line at edge of the bottom stair. For example, the Lippert Manual Pull-Out Step, # LC432687, has three steps and measures seven inches at the bottom two steps, has a stair assembly...

  • Can Scissor Steps be Mounted on a Pontoon Boat/Trailer for Getting in and out of the Water
  • Technically, you could install scissor steps such as # TLA7806 or # AS25 on anything that you want. However you would need to make sure that the bottom of the steps, when pulled out, makes contact with the ground because that is where half of the support would come from. You also might consider a bunk ladder. I have included a link to the bunk ladder options we have.

  • Can Lippert Kwikee Electric RV Steps be Installed on a 2017 Chevy Express 2500 Van
  • Technically you could install Lippert Components Kwikee # LC3722862 on anything that they will fit on. As far as installing them on your 2017 Chevy Express van it hasn't been done before so I cannot say for sure if it would work or if ground clearance would be an issue. The mounting bolt pattern is 8 x 26 inches. We do have some steps made for the van. Extending step # CARR501050 is one option. The other options are running boards such as # DZ15300S-15316 for 155 inch wheelbase models...

  • 2505-8305 Model Steps on a 1990 Airstream 345 Motor Home Will Not Fully Extend
  • The motor is likely the culprit of your steps not retracting all the way. The nylon gear inside the motor is likely the part that is worn. The step is able to extend due to gravity but it sound like the motor does not have enough power on the upstroke to fully retract. Unfortunately, I am not able to reference the model number that you provided. However, if it is a Kwikee Step then there would not be any replacement parts for you due to the age of the step. Therefore, your only option would...

  • Brophy Camper Scissor Step Compatibility with Bottom of Camper Door Measurement
  • With the bottom of the door at 24 inches on level ground, the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps - 3 Steps - Steel - Diamond Tread - 18" Wide - 300 lbs # SS03 will have a very slight lean in the tread toward the RV. Unlevel ground will obviously change this and may make this step even more user friendly. To give you the level steps, you would want to use the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps - 2 Steps - Steel - Diamond Tread - 18" Wide - 300 lbs # SS02 which will reach up to 23 inches. This will...

  • SolidStep Fold Out Steps For 2013 Coachman Chaparral 5th Wheel
  • Since your door way width at the narrowest point is 30” and your entry height is between 35” to 44”, then the Lippert # LC791575 Solid Step is the best fit. With bigger steps you may want to consider a bigger hand rail support. The Stromberg Carlson # AC-530 Folding Handrail is the perfect solution. It is easy to install and is very strong. When you install the SolidStep it will just be natural to remove the old rattle-bang stock steps that came on your trailer. The Lippert #...

  • Recommended Scissor Steps For a Flat Bed Camper
  • Torklift steps are going to be just a bit wider than your desired 20" wide mounting dimension at 21-1/2", and the Brophy steps will be just a bit under at 18-1/4". Both the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps # TLA7845 and the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS05 will fit your 43" entry height and are removable. Of the two the TorkLift steps are the more stable option. They include landing feet for more ground stability and are adjustable to fit uneven terrain. These steps include...

  • Will Manual Pull-Out Steps SMFP-2100 Fit a 2017 Forest River Wildwood XLITE 171RBXL
  • To determine if manual pull-out steps # SMFP-2100 fit your 2017 Forest River Wildwood you can measure the mounting hole spacing on your existing steps. If they are spaced 24-1/2 inch apart on center left to right and 7 inches on center front to back then these steps will fit. If you have a different measurement let me know what it is. Another thing to consider is ground clearance. Sometimes when you go to a unit with more steps it can cause ground clearance issues because the new steps...

  • Would the Flexco Manual Pull-Out Steps # SMFP-3200L Replace 5th Wheel Steps
  • If you can determine if the steps you have are Lippert or Stromberg Carlson then yes, the Flexco Manual Pull-Out Steps # SMFP-3200L that you referenced would work great as an easy replacement for what you currently have. Otherwise I am confident you could get these steps to fit, but it might take a little fabrication. Most RVs use the same style of brackets for pull out steps, I wouldn't say that all of the steps fit easily on every RV but for the most part you can make just about any step...

  • Have Lippert SolidSteps Been Updated Over Years
  • The Lippert SolidSteps like part # LC791574 have gone through a few revisions mainly to allow them to fit better and work easier. The exact changes are subtle and technical but on our end we find they end up fitting wider door width ranges and they function a little easier overall.

These steps have a 9" rise/drop and combo of both tread holes and grip tape for increased traction. They are easy to use as well, simply pull out or push in.

  • Step Recommendation For 2006 Citation RV With 29 Inch Door Opening and 36 Inch Ground Height
  • I recommend the SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Step part # part # LC678041 with a 28 inch wide frame bracket to fit the 29 inch doorway. There will be about a 1/2 inch of space to each side of the step but that is okay because the bracket does not install to the sides of the doorway opening. A lot of our customers like the SolidStep because it is designed to fold up into the camper's doorway instead of staying closed underneath the camper where the steps are exposed to the elements.
