I picked up my 2018 3605 Voltage yesterday. I got it home and started trying all of the systems. I pulled the Ramp Steps out and tried to connect them but couldn't.
It seems that the brackets are off just a bit. Has anyone had similar trouble? Maybe I just wasn't doing it correctly. I was thinking of taking one of the brackets off and elongating the holes with my Dremel tool and sliding it over. Don't want to screw up the warranty though.
I wish I could be more help in this situation but I have had my RV for almost 9 months and have never used the steps off the rear ramp. I have used it as a balcony and have used the railings. I would personally like to make a set of brackets that the balcony can mount into so I can still use the door and that the door locks into when the stairs are not used. I will post pictures if and when I get around to this.

Let me just say this about the "Fast Track Party Deck" it is anything but fast. I struggled for two hours adjusting and attaching the steps to the Deck/Ramp and scratched the heck out of the deck. As soon as I stepped up on the deck the steps slid and bent the edge of the Ramp door. The Rails or walls would not lock into the Step bracket and I'm going to have to shim the Rails Bracket up or something to get the rail to lock into the Steps bracket. I'm guessing the Folks that install the bracketry at the Factory were out the night before getting Drunk. I'm PISSED! I won't be using the Steps. I'll be using something else other than those darn things.
Steps were a PITA. I ended up getting a small, 3 step aluminum ladder and use that the few times I want to access the deck and not go thru the RV. Plus you can use the ladder for washing the truck, windows, etc.

I finally got the steps installed. I had to use my dremel tool to enlarge the mounting bracket retaining bolt holes in order to slide the brackets over.
Also I picked up some tailgate support stands to keep the tailgate from moving or dropping down. Once the gate was secured in place the steps snapped right, that is after I massaged the brackets. Everything works very nicely with the stands in place.
