Steps not working
Of course on the inspection, our 2011 steps work as they are supposed to. Shortly after purchase (the first trip) they start to act up. When starting the motor home, the step did not retract until I hit about 15 mph or so. Now, they don't retract at all with the motor home running. In fact, if the door is closed, steps are up, then I start the MH, the steps come back out. Currently, as long as the MH is running, the steps are out. They work as they should when the MH is off.
I have checked the wiring. All is correct according to the Kwikee troubleshooting guide. The grounds have been redone. The connection harness has been cleaned, the battery is new with full volts.
Currently, I am unplugging the steps when they are up before we leave and plugging them in at our destination. I suspect a bad "brain" and I am going to cut the MH power signal line as when this is "hot," that's when it doesn't work. I just need to make sure I don't take off with the door open. I figure before I do all this, I'd see if anyone had any other ideas. Spending $100-200 for a new brain seems risky when I physically have no way of checking and confirming the old one is bad.
