Expert Answers about RV and Camper Steps


  • How To Mount TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Steps To Camper With 9" Deep Bumper
  • I may have different installation method for you, but there is not an extended bracket made to push the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear # TLA7843 away from your camper to clear your bumper. It may be possible to have a local fabrication shop make a custom bracket for your application. Instead I recommend installing the # TLA7843 to the bumper of your camper as shown in the included pictures, this will allow you to still use the step, but will not require a...

  • Installation Bracket Locations for Lippert Victory Fold-Down Steps
  • The Victory Step Manual Fold-Down Steps for RV and Toy Hauler Patios - Quadruple - Aluminum # LC726895 you asked about will only allow for about 3 inches from the edge. For your application you would either need to add a piece that is hinged to flip out over the door frame or add a piece to the outer door frame to hold the brackets and weight. This could look similar to the Lippert Components Garage Storage Brackets for Victory Step Manual Fold-Down RV Steps - Wall Mount # LC726890 but...

  • How to Install MORyde StepAbove RV Steps with a Door that has a Gas Strut Obstructing Clearance
  • If you are wanting to install the MORryde StepAbove RV Steps # MR98RR you would need to remove the shock rod/gas strut because it will interfere with the step clearance. You can use the Replacement Controlled Motion Hinge for RV Entry Door # LC95VR (black) or # LC22NJ (white) on your RV door which uses Controlled Motion Technology to hold the door open in any position instead of allowing the door to swing freely. This will work with Lippert RV doors as an alternative to a shock rod/gas strut.

  • Installation of Lippert SolidSteps with Screen Door Pressure
  • If there is pressure on the hinge side of the door and screen door from the steps it sounds like the mounting plate wasn't installed far enough back from the door. All the weight of the stairs should be on the floor with just slight securing for stability on the sides of the door frame. If you are stating that the screen door touches the frame of the steps and doesn't latch for travel, that is not an issue as the exterior door is latched and the stairs won't be moving. I've attached...

  • Switch Kit for Kwikee 32 Series Electric Steps
  • Thank you for the purchase! Since your steps are operating backwards, the issue is likely the reverse polarity of the motor. What you should do is try reversing the red and yellow wires to reverse the functions so the steps aren't out. Additionally, the Kwikee 32 Series Electric RV Steps # LC3722615 does not actually come with the switch kit, however; for that you need the Rocker Switch with Door Sensor for Kwikee Electric RV Steps - 250V # LC369311.

  • The Brophy Camper Scissor Steps part # AS24 will require 1-1/4" of clearance between the bottom of the door and bottom of the cab on your Palomino Truck Bed Camper in order for the mounting bracket to attach. If you removed a portion of the trim piece where the bracket would mount to allow it to sit flush and this provides the minimum of 1-1/4" then you could do this. However, if not you would need to attach some heavy duty l-brackets to the underside of the body and mount the steps to...

To do this, with the steps down, take tape and place a piece on each side, down on the threshold, at the edge of the step bracket. Raise the steps up inside the door frame. Separate the screen door from the outer door, close your screen door and mark the bottom edge of the screen door frame at the edge of the tape. That is the width you need to cut. From each mark...

You would need to remove your current bracket and it would require a 19.5" x 3.5" mounting area below the door.

You can see in the attached videos if the threshold were larger you would simply attach to it and if smaller would fit right over it. With yours I recommend trimming that threshold just where the step hinge is for a flush fit. You can use a small cutting wheel on a rotary tool or drill to make it easy after tracing that edge.

  • Can the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Steps be Mounted on a Flat surface Rather tha an Upright
  • No the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear part # TLA7843 needs to be mounted to a vertical surface. The one way around this would be to have bracket fabricated at a local shop to change your mounting position to a vertical one. The mounting bracket is 21.5" wide so if that matches the width of your opening you will be in good shape. If it doesn't give me the width and a pic of the steps and I can make a suggestion for you.

  • What Might Cause Lippert SolidStep to Make Shutting Door Difficult
  • We've seen this issue before on an older camper that had the screen door installed a little lower than how they are now. An installer here actually had this exact problem. If your door is close to closing, a couple suggestions that you can try first is to not reinstall the decorative roll plate that goes against the threshold on the inside. Typically it has a lip that can raise the plate on the step. This can be done without removing the steps or any trimming. If that does work and...

  • Can Lippert SolidStep Fit on RV with Low Height Threshold

If you check out the picture I attached you'll see what the threshold looks like when the step is folded up. Basically the bracket rolls up and over the threshold which leaves the original threshold height unchanged when the door opens and closes.

  • Installation of the Lippert Pull Out Steps on Trailer with 22-1/2 inch Distance Between Bolt Holes
  • The outriggers part # LC301704 move the install holes of the steps out 1 inch on either side. This would put the mounting holes at 26 inches apart when installed on the # SMFP-2120. There's no way to get this step to install using your current holes as they are too close together, but I am confident you could redrill new holes on your trailer frame or even weld these to your frame and they would work well. A qualified welder would have no problem at all attaching these to your trailer frame.

  • 4-Step Pull Out Recommendation for 2010 Cougar 5th Wheel by Keystone
  • Your 2010 Cougar by Keystone has a Lippert frame so that means that our RV pull out steps like the Flexco Pullout 4-Step part # SMFP-4400 are going to bolt right up since these steps are designed to attach to the Lippert mounting brackets. These are overall 28-1/2 inches wide so you can also compare that to the mounting brackets of your trailer to see if they are a match.

  • Can Pull-Out Steps for RV be Used on 2006 Honda Pilot?
  • The Flexco Manual Pull-Out Steps for RVs # SMFP-2120 are not designed for use on a passenger vehicle like your 2006 Honda Pilot so the install would be difficult, to say the least. To add a step to your '06 Pilot I strongly recommend going with running boards instead.
