Step Won't stay out

Can anyone tell me how to get the step to stay out when the door is closed at a sight?

What type of camper do you have (i.e. TT, MH). In our Georgetown there's a panel to the right of the door which has 3 switches. Exterior light, Battery Disconnect and an override switch for the stairs. The override switch is designed to keep the stairs out when the door is closed.

Hope this helps....

I assume you're talking about a motorhome? Most TT and 5er steps aren't motorized and are just always out when you flip them down.

You might get more traction on your question in the subforum for your motorhome's brand.

Might help if you post details about your rig. I even looked at your profile and it has no information. This makes it hard to even give a suggestion.

When i first read the title I thought it said "She won't stay out ".
Now that I understand the situation, I agree, there is a switch somewhere on the automatic steps. Like Jmsx2 said, it's usually at the bottom of a cabinet within reaching distance from outside.

That's funny! Our Georgetown is a 328TS. Our panel is against the wall to the right as you walk into the Coach! AquaMan is correct as some Coaches the switch is to the left on a cabinet.

Pretty simple process. Flip the switch to override the steps to stay out.

If Lippert steps; step power switch "OFF". If Kwikee steps; step power switch "ON".

Sounds like it's hooked up backwards. Haven't seen one yet that would stay in with the switch.
