Electric steps will not retract on 2007 Milbourne MH

Hello All, I am new to the forum and I'm having a problem with the electric steps on my 2007 Melbourne... I can't get the electric steps to retract... I have the switch in the correct position (On), and the cabin power on, but they will not retract... I also tried starting the MH but they still won't retract... They were working fine until weather got cold (below freezing)... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated?

Just a guess, but you have either blown a fuse or the lubricant someone has used is getting too thick and resistance is too great. Does it make any effort at all, which you can manually assist. If not I'm betting electrical. I don't know your system electric schematic but the fuse may be inline.

Pulled up the owners manual for your MH. Following is direct quote. "ELECTRIC ENTRY DOOR STEP
Your motorhome is equipped with an electric
entry door step that opens automatically when
the screen door is opened (the 12-volt battery
disconnect switch must be ON). Constant
12-volt power to the electric step is supplied
through a 20-amp circuit breaker located
inside the battery box near the auxiliary start
solenoid."

Thanks...

Thanks for your reply... No, no movement at all, so I think you may be correct... I'll see if I can locate a fuse and post an update if I find it...

Thanks for the help! Last night I reset the breaker, and reset all the switches, but the steps still did not go up... But there must be a delay in the circuit because when I went out this morning at 5 AM, they were up! All set... Thanks again for your help!

Our steps acted similarly, although for us, they wouldn't extended. I often thought this meant it was time to lube the steps, which I did and they would work. This lasted a few years until the steps finally quit completely. Turned out to be a bad motor.

It doesn't take much resistance for the steps to stop (safety feature) so if you had any moisture or as ruralIn said heavy lube that got cold or froze they would stop. Also the magnetic switch on the door may have stuck too.
