However, for those that may want to accomplish this mod on Kwikee steps it should be noted that prior to 2/99 kwikee used a NC door switch and it is still available, part number 905312000 and available from American RV Company $12.00 (and others). Probably can be mounted on existing small door switch using existing single magnet or added to doors independently. Just a thought.

Hank and Bubbles, I had read the kwikee manual first and that is what took me so long to realize my lipert door switch went to ground when the door was open.
Once I finally figured that out it was stupid simple.

I'm attaching the Coach Step wiring for others that may be interested:

As noted earlier, if you have Kwikee Step, the door magnet circuit is different. - Hank

How is the Kwikee circuit different. I am trying to use a Stromberg Carlson controller on Kwikee steps and not working. What do I need to change to make it work?
