If you intend to replace the ladder with the same ladder, I recommend the following:
1. Contact Jayco to determine the Jayco part number for your ladder.
2. Next ask what is the corresponding Atwood part number (assuming that Atwood still makes ladders for Jayco).
3. Contact Atwood Mobile (www.atwoodmobile.com
4. Provide Atwood with the Atwood part number from step #2.
5. Atwood will make a new ladder for you from the original specs; ask for a pdf of the manufacturing specs before ordering to ensure that Atwood has the correct ladder specs for your trailer.
6. Concerns: Assuming that you order directly from Atwood, make sure that the holes drilled in the ladder are done correctly (ie, perpendicular to the run of the ladder). You will have something like 10-15 days to return if defective. It's important that you immediately inspect the workmanship of the build upon receiving it.
7. Costs: the ladder will probably cost around $150-170. However, the big expense will be the freight costs. You have two options: (a) pay a large freight fee for the ladder as a single unit because of the large shipping box; or (b) pay a smaller freight fee where the ladder is cut in half to reduce the size of the shipping box.
8. Installation is straight-forward. Remove old ladder and replace with new ladder. Use appropriate caulk, and optionally, follow-up with eternabond.
