Got it. My steps quit retracting out of the blue this am. Screen door magnetic switch looks ok (it was screwed in sometime ago)and fuses are ok. Have to check the controller, wiring before getting bonified service. Don't think lube will be the issue but I'll do that as well.

Mine is mounted under the steps. Itís a plastic almost triangular piece with lots of wires coming out of the back of it.

I did what Grumpy suggested. With a needlenose pliers, you can wiggle the wires out of the connector. Swapped 'em and the steps started working again.






Until last month, when the steps are having *new* problems. I'm thinking it's a helluva lot less work on me if I just print a sign on the exit door that says: "JUMP!!!"
Thanks for letting me know you had the same issue and how you repaired it. Iím thinking of putting the same sign. Climbing IN seems good exercise for the glutes! 😂

I have a 2012 Greyhawk bought used. Dealer put in New motor for steps, continued to have issues. Eventually removed the fuse under hood near battery once parked for long stay to keep steps out. Then I figured out that I had to go directly from drivers seat to coach door, open door, steps extend, then turn power switch for steps off. Crazy, me? Or what???! Also the fuse was supposed to be a 7 amp, there was a 15 amp installed. Go figure. I replaced the 15 amp. Doing ok now.
