Yeah I have a Redhawk as well and if the steps only go in when you start the rig than it sounds like the switch that controls the stairs has been turned off.

I have been pleased with ours. The shower current works great. My only complaint is the analog thermostat and thin mattress. I installed a digital thermostat and am losing weight to fix the thin mattress problem!

The extra magnet idea is a good idea. That is a quick easy way to keep the stairs in all the time.

We like our Redhawk and have had it out 5 times, no problems. The shower curtain had a tear in it when we bought it. They replaced it with another type, they said, it works fine. Take yours back to the dealer and get it fixed.

Yeah, like my Redhawk. Doesn't look like many of us out there.
I found my mattress to be ok- wife and I are small people so maybe that's why. Yeah, digital thermostat would be a good idea. Was it simple rewire behind the box or involved?
Our nearest Jayco dealer is 50 miles away-will have to stop by there to have them get us a new shower curtain- just checking if other Redhawk owners were having the same prob-mine just seem too short and wont make it to the closed end.
Question: the tv jack in the small compartment outside- is that for hooking up to tv jack at RV parks? or is it just for hooking up another tv if we want to watch outdoors?

I used the direct ColemanMech digital replacement. It's an easy rewire. It's more expensive to go the direct replacement route but it works really well and does not require batteries. Another nice thing about it is once you apply power to the coach it turns on and displays the current temp. The only odd thing I have noticed is there is a very long 1 to 2 minute delay before the air conditioner will turn on. I am not sure if it was like this before or if the new thermostat has this delay built into it.http://www.rvplus.com/coleman-digita...FVES7Aod1GwANg

Speaking of warranty claim my slide wiper seal was torn when I got it. The dealer replaced it without any problems and they did a really good job. The cost to me was free but the invoice to Jayco was over $700.

The TV jack in the compartment outside is used to connect a TV so you can watch TV outside. I installed a TV in the bedroom and can take it outside if I want to. So far I haven't found a need to do that.

I will be interested to hear if the OP gets his stairs to work properly. Since we have the same model it would be good to know what the issue was.

I thought this was the park-cable jack. IE - if the park provides analog cable for campers you can get those channels on your tv? Note, it'll likely work as you've described it - providing antenna signal to the outside jack also, I just never thought about it that way..

Yeah the cable input jack is behind a small door under the water valve door on the drivers side.
