That is the way that mine works. Whether it is supposed to or not may be another question.

Dan and Marty. Mine works as you both described. I see no reason for it to work like that as it makes the step switch useless. I never us it because I don't want to cycle the steps every time I open the door.
As for the step replacement they put the replaced mine with the same model it came with. I haven't had any issues with it so far.

I'm determined to make the light stay on with the switch turned off. I'll let you guys know what I find out.

Tom, as for the steps delayed reaction mine started doing that on the way to Goshen last year. The Lipert guys crawled under there for a couple of minutes and fixed it. Been working correctly ever since.
I know that doesn't help much, but it indicates it might be something simple that they could talk you through over the phone.

Kwikee and I believe also Lippert provide a (purple) wire from their module for splicing to the porch light power wire that will illuminate the step light through the porch light switch. Just splice into the wiring and feed thru a 5amp fuse if your porch light is not already fused.

I crawled under my steps and Lippert installed the same as was prviously there. The linkage bolt/rod is still there. I hope it still holds up as the next time there probably will not be anyone there to catch me. LOL

I found that purple wire a few minutes ago and was checking to see if it put out any power in any of the steps or switch configurations. It did not.

I believe you're saying that if we can connect 12 volts to the purple wire the light should come on?

Yes I found that in the manual suggesting connecting to the porch light. I also verified that the light will come on if 12 volts is connected to the purple wire.
Now I am just looking for someplace other than the porch lights to pick up the 12 volts.
Would be nice if they came on when your open the door, whether the steps were in or out.
