MORryde Step-Above Entry Steps - Beware the slick spot!

I have a brand new beautiful Jayco North Point and I absolutely love the new MORryde Step-Above Entry Steps. I did a mod this morning after a surprise discovery and wanted to ensure everyone who has these steps is aware of the modification. The metal threshold has two strips of slip resistant tape that run almost the entire width of the threshold. Somehow I managed to get the heel of my tennis shoe on the part that doesn't have the tape and I took a spill that was right out of a Roadrunner cartoon. Bam, bam, bam, bam, bam, thud!

I went to Lowe's and bought some 3M Saftey Tape and filled in the ends on both sides.

If your wondering, I'm 53 and although the fall hurt a little bit it made me feel pretty good that I could still take that hard a fall and walk away.

Got a pic where you put it? I just installed these steps and thought putting another parallel to the front one.

Here are some before and after photos. Notice on the one without the tape you can see where my shoes slipped on the metal. Won't slip anymore!

I see you added above the threshold. Did you add to steps also?

Thanks for the warning and glad you’re ok. I bought some tape for that very spot last fall and now I want to get it in place sooner rather than later. If only the nor’easters would stop...

I didn't add anything to the steps.

Pardon my ignorance... what is the benefit of doing this mod vs. having the standard steps? One of the disadvantages I could think of is that you need to clear the steps before departure, as otherwise all the dirt would land on you TT floor. Correct?

I should have been a little clearer about my steps, they came with the RV stock. The mod was just the little bit of extra anti-slip tape.

In regards to your question about the dirt and such coming into the camper; for what we do it doesn't seem to be that big a problem. I plan on adding a hand broom to my quick access stuff in my truck while traveling. Other than that, we don't usually get mud on our steps. I can see where other situations might be alot different than ours though and in that case the old steps would be better for dealing with dirt.

Another advantage of the steps are that they are rock solid - No bounce going up and down them. However, if you have to put your camper in tight storage, you may not have room to swing steps out and would need to pull the trailer forward to gain access.

How do they do with uneven ground. Does the adjustable feet make up for uneven ground?
