When I was on the last road trip, my steps on my RV started making a loud ratcheting sound. The steps would extend but not retract.
After doing some research I ordered a new motor on Amazon
It literally took me longer to get my tools together than it did to do the following:
Extend the steps (the “in use” position) unplug cable from motor Remove 3 bolts (10mm socket) Lower motor and remove the gear and washer from bad motor. Install the gear and washer from bad motor onto new motor. Raise and align the 3 bolt holes and install 3 bolts (10mm socket) Plugin power cable. Test
If you need step by step instructions Tito has done a great job documenting the process. https://www.rvwithtito.com/articles/repair-automatic-rv-step
Yesterday I finished driving through Arizona and entered New Mexico traveling Interstate 40 East.
Probably the smoothest road I have driven on this entire trip. I averaged 6.8 miles per gallon Towing my Jeep Wrangler behind the RV.
The first stop today will be in Amarillo, Texas to refill and stretch Mayhem’s legs.
Today started out with a nice walk with Mayhem.
Driving through Ohio and Indiana was very colorful. It’s a great time of year for watching the colors change.
The featured image was shot through the window screen and turned out kind of cool.
The day started out kind of late. We got held up by a few Amish buggies but managed to make it to Ohio.
Home from vacation and relaxing
2 parts maple whiskey 1 part Woo Woo Vodka
Great wood slab selection at R & T nautical in Cape Charles, Virginia.
Another fun-filled day at the beach with the dogs playing in the water.
