Troubleshooting A Door Threshold Interference After Installation Of Lippert Solid Step  


I just installed the solid step on my 2009 Dutchmen Denali. Now the screen door won’t close and the entry door is tight.


Helpful Expert Reply:

It is fairly common for older trailers like your 2009 Dutchmen Denali to have had the screen door installed lower than what they are now, which is causing the interference with the SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps for 29" to 36" Wide RV Door Frames # LC791575.

What you can do to alleviate this issue, is trim the bottom of the screen door frame. To do this, with the steps down, take a piece of tape and place one on each side, down on the threshold at the edge of the step bracket. From here you'll need to 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. This'll be the width you need to cut.

This should alleviate your screen door issue, however the entry door will still be tight but it'll close.
