Yes, that should be easy to do, as I had to replace some step parts on our old 25'. There are big Allen-head bolts holding everything together. Having the correct wrench with a big T-handle will help IMO, in case the bolt is frozen in place. Not sure about removing the entire step assembly, but that would let the welder add aluminum and grind it for you. Maybe save the final adjustment of the new aluminum to be done with a file back at home?

Good luck!

So I dropped a couple of 8D waffle-headed nails into the corners, between the struts and the upper step, to compensate for the wear, until I can do better. Does a fix already exist?
Hello I have the fix for your droopy steps. I have been selling these step braces for many years. Just got off the Rev war caravan and installed 4 sets. If I install they R $25 if we were on a caravan or at TR in FL. Being that I do not know where U live I can send them to U for $25 shipping and handling included and US only.
I also send good instruction for installation. I guarantee U will not have any more droopy step problem and once installed U will be happy.
