    Our Fleetwood stepper door recently broke from a failed rivet, as most all do at some point. I searched through old threads about how to fix it, and then posted an inquiry on one of those threads asking where to source the parts.

    A fellow Portal member was kind enough to inform me that he had spare sets of the parts from when he had completed his own stepper door fix. This gentlemen then proceeded to immediately ship two sets of the parts to me in the mail, at his cost. I'm still hoping he gives me his address so I can reimburse him.

    It was such a nice thing to do, and I wanted to share my experience. Hopefully I can pay it forward at some point.

    Do for others as you would like them to do upon you.

    MIlover, glad I could help. Hopefully the part works out and fixes your stepper door. Don't worry about the shipping, but thanks for the gesture. You could pay it forward or perform a random act of kindness some time.

    I'm so happy I found this forum so early in our journey to getting a PUP. I have a feeling it will be a great resource for tips and friends!

    That's the best kind of kindness.....when people don't make a big deal about it.
    Not like what's all over Facebook right now...."Hey, look at me. Aren't I great for doing this?"

    Stories like these warm my heart. As my dear old Mom used to say that is another star in you halo in heaven.
