I have a problem with my steps not wanting to stay out when we are parked at a camp site. When the RV is running the steps go out when we open the door and retract when the door is closed. When we arrive at a camp site, the engine off, and the door closed, the steps will not stay out. Also when the steps retract the motor continues to hum for a few seconds before shutting off. Any idea?

There is a switch near the door that you can manually allow the steps to stay out or close when you close the door. Do you have this option?

Thank you John for the reply. I had to leave for work shortly after our camping trip when this problem accrued so I hadn't ready investigated the problem fully. I am still presently out of the country and as soon as I return I will check on your suggestion along with my brake light issue and let you know the outcome.

John I have just joined the RVAmerica forum and I have been looking through some of the picture of the places that you and your wife have been to. They are great. It appears that both of you are really enjoying life.

I do appreciate the help.

Ron - The below link may give you a better understanding of how one of the more popular electric steps (Kwikee) works. Good luck - Dave
