Steps squeaking on our Sunset Trail25RB 2013

We had noticed that the thresh hold under the door, that the metal strip had loosened up, we tightened up, it loosened again, and we had noticed our steps were really squeaky, so low and behold the bolts holding the steps needed to be tightened up, we put the metal thresh hold plate back down and screwed it back in so hopefully it will hold now that the steps are not squeaking or shifting when we step on them. So listen for that squeaky step, they might need tightening.

I bought a an adjustable step brace to limit the flex when weight is put on it. Seems to work and reduces the movement of the trailer when entering/exiting too.

Camco 43691 Save-A-Step Brace (7-5/8"-14")

It will help stabilize them as well as take a lot of shake out when someone goes in and out.

I was wondering if something like that existed. We've noticed our front entrance steps squeak a lot too (especially the bottom/first step). Will definitely be picking up one of these braces.

Thank you posting the product.

I told my wife our steps squeak also and we should buy this. She said 'loose some weight."

Be sure and get the 7.5 to 14 in one. The smaller one I think would be to small. The only time mine did not fit is when I set up so steps landed on a wooden deck. In that particular case I just set it under the second step.
