    Step size for Starcraft Centennial 3604

    I need to replace the step on my 2005 Starcraft Centennial 3604 camper. My DW is currently out of town with the camper while I am working and therefore I cannot physically measure what size I need. Can anyone tell me if it is a 20 or 24" pullout step? Thanks.
