Question Jayco 2015 29MV steps stay in auto

No matter what position I have the auto / off step control toggle switch in, the steps go up and down every time the door is opened or closed. I tested the switch and it functions properly. I checked grounds and fuses and they are good. The steps are lubricated (which has nothing to do with this issue ) There are no broken wires and the door switch must be working since it causes the steps to raise and lower as the door is opened and closed. I am stumped. Any ideas on what to check next?

I vaguely remember this irritating step action myself. I recall opening the RV door and that damn step coming out when I though it shouldnt. I think I determined in my case it was operating as designed; that if the door is opened and the step is in, the step would come out, no matter the switch setting.

I have since removed the step control board and use a manual setup, so cant test.

Does it make a difference if the RV battery/12V switch is off, or on?

But the steps should not go in with the switch off.. I think he is saying they do anyway.

If you have the Kwikee steps see the attached pages from the manual. I had to break it down due to upload file size limits.

It appears the switch provides 12 volts to the control unit. It is protected by a fuse somewhere inline. If you don't measure 12 volts on the switch I would look for that fuse. 12 volts on the switch wire to the unit is suppose to keep the steps down.

The info shows how to test the connections and verify all operating functions.
