Steps on a 23FB

Wife and I used our new 23FB for the first time this past weekend. We went a bit off the beat path and camped on a friends property near a babbling brook and we were completely off the grid.

To get to this place we had to travel about a mile down a gravel / dirt road, it had rained earlier in the week, so the trailer got covered in slop.

There was so much dirt and grime in the folding step that we could not get it to operate.

Does AS make a mud flap to keep all the grime out of the steps and dump valve area on the 23FB?

If not they should............I tried washing the step out with fresh water last night when we got home and I still can get the thing to operate properly

I've never seen a mud flap for the steps. If the steps did not get bent hitting a hole, they should be able to be cleaned out and be like new. Try a pressure washer.

If your steps struck something, they could be bent slightly and misaligned. If this has happened, they will never work right again and need to be replaced. This has happened to me twice in the past.
