Attention all Georgetown owners..............

Not all models have their switches within reach of the screen door opening. Depending on what model and what year, you WILL have to use a magnet type trick to have the steps retract. The bank of switches is located in different places amongst the Georgetown models.

Be very specific which model you are discussing with your problems and resolutions.

I solved this issue on my coach by doing a simple wiring change. On my coach there is a fused wire coming directly off the battery to the steps. This is what allows the step to extend with the battery disconnected. My battery control centre is just above the battery bank, and it contains the solenoid activated by the battery disconnect switch. The live connection (direct from the battery) and the switched connection are extended to the outside of the battery control centre on the right side. They are easy to locate if you take the cover off the battery control centre to see the solenoid. I moved the step power wire from the battery positive terminal to the switched side of the solenoid. Now there is no power to the steps once the disconnect switch is activated.
