THOR #920
Older Class A Roof ladder

Has anybody had to work on or repair their ladder to the roof on a Thor coach? Steel hardware rusting apart; need to replace with SS. Any information on how it is installed so I don't screw things up. Thanks

If it was me, I would go with the existing mounting area, just replacing the hardware

That's what I plan to do but since everything steel and rusted, I need to get it apart first! There is always a proper order to disassembly and with my luck I'll start at the wrong end

I understand, If me I would start at the top, there is someone changing one over on Utube not too clear on what they did but worth a shot

You don't say what year your MH is, but my roof latter is screwed to the body
I have to go around tightening screws every few months.

I understand your ladder itself is still in good condition, it is just the attaching hardware that is deteriorated. I had similar issue in another SOB coach and the issue was anchoring the new hardware. I cleaned/reamed out the holes and then redrilled a smaller hole to set the screws in. The attach points on ladder frame covered 90% of my handiwork which was still firm 2+ years later when we traded it in on another coach.
