Step issue

We recently purchased a 2023 Jayco 24RE 5th wheel. It came equipped with a 3 step Morryde step which is very difficult to navigate.The steps are 8 inches apart however the bottom step is 12 inches above the ground which is not an easy step to make. The Morryde people recommend a 4 step model for a 39 inch floor height which the trailer has. Also on the Morryde website they have a video showing how to change 3 step model with a 4 step on a Jayco 5th wheel. Furthermore the Jayco website illustration showing the construction of a Jayco shows a 4 step model. Jayco refuses to offer any assistance to replace this step which definitely is a safety hazard.

Is there a question in there or are you just venting?

As discussed in other threads, Jayco reserves the right to substitute equipment as they see fit. You might be able to get traction if the sales sticker explicitly lists 4 steps, and you lawyer up, otherwise I wouldn't hold my breath. If you wanna go for the long haul, knock yourself out but probably easier to do it yourself and sell the 3-steps to make up the difference. Maybe you'll get lucky and you find some who wants to trade. Or make a little wooden box to go at the bottom as an intermediate step.

A 4 step set of Morryde steps ain't gonna be cheap. I would recommend you get a portable RV step to put on the ground at the bottom of your steps. I used one of these with our 5th wheel and it worked great. Just type in "RV step" on Amazon. Costs about $50.

Not a bad idea. I carry one so my mother-in-law can get into my F-350. She has knee issues.

You will save yourself a lot of grief when you try to deal with any stock change outs, in 99 percent of the cases on new rvs. Just get one of these, which is actual easily adjustable with the feet . You can have a maximum 6" additional height if need be, dictated by terrain and has not slipped for my own use. It stores easily . They range from 22 bucks to 27, on average. You can buy them at Wallyworld too.
