How Do RV Replacement Steps Normally Install


I need step by step plan on how to install new steps on my 2003 bounder. the old step has been removed.??

There's more than one way to install RV replacement steps. If you get lucky you can bolt up the new set to the same brackets that the RV already has, or you can have them welded on directly which works well, or you can install new brackets/outriggers with part # LC301704.

The specific location and orientation of the outriggers depends on the RV/trailer. There isn't one set way they would have to be installed. And some applications do not use the outriggers.

The installation of the steps is as follows:

1. Ensure step is completely back up against the step supports on frame [Angle or Tube].
2. Insert carriage bolts and flange lock nuts. Tighten down only until snug in order to make adjustments.
3. Verify that the step housing is square, level to the outrigger, and plumb to the chassis. Once you have verified this, tighten the carriage bolts down.
4. Attach tech screws through the step supports, 2 (1) each side, to the step supports on the chassis.
5. Attach lag bolt or bolts to floor through the outer end holes in the outrigger.
