I hate my steps !!!!

It's official - I absolutely hate my steps... They are a POJ !!! I'm outside in my yard and all if a sudden my steps cycle in and out three times and no one is even close to the coach. Needless to say, they open on their own as I'm driving down the road... I've had them "worked" on at least three times to no avail...

So FR, if you ever read these posts - I HATE MY STEPS ....

I have the motor replaces 3 times in less than 3 years. When it went again I got Randy involved and Lippert sent an entire new step assembly.

That was done just before putting the unit into storage. Not too hopeful but am keeping my fingers crossed.

If it happens again I will replace with different manufacturer.

ernest, tell us how you really feel......lol.

Sounds like you have a short somewhere. Either inside the motor assembly or at the door contact.

Oh I agree with you 100%
When we bought our current coach last year as we were walking up to look at it, the first thing I noticed was the LCI decal on the steps. I made the comment "S*^*! LCI steps" and the salesman kind of snickered. So far though (knock on wood) no problems at all.

Does sound like it could be a short though

I think the coach is calling to you and inviting you in

Forgive me I just had to

I ended up buying a whole new step system as well. Make sure you get right one as they make many variations and one I bought is a one step like I replaced but drops lower. Works great and fast motor as step is out by time I walk on it. Original step I noticed people where stepping in it and it was still moving as it was much slower.
