We had some ideas back in July of how to proceed, but fixing the ladder was the first step. So here’s what we did . . .
Remove the Ladder from Our RV
Remove the Damaged Steps
This was the most difficult step. Each step was held in place by two pins that defied removal.
We had to resort to cutting out each pin which also damaged the ladder itself.
Strengthening the Ladder with Pipes
Adding the New Steps
The new steps were a different (and much better) design than the old steps. The new steps used side screws, not pins, to fasten them to the ladder rails.
