I dont like the thought of blindly welding in this area and I would realy like to get access from the top to install a heavier plate with bolts to secure my steps.
My coach is a 99 35U Cheiftan
Any help would be appreciated
use the search function to check my recent post in "winnebago battery compartment repair'', post #19 for the stair repair that i designed and implemented, including pictures.
the battery compartment floor is related to the bottom stair mount cracking.
my understanding of the best repair is to cut the lower inside stair out with a metal grinder or saw to implement a doubler repair with angle iron and thicker sheet metal on the panel that the electric steps mount to.
i didn't want to go there at this time.
