Magnet all the way! Exit the coach leaving door open, put a magnet on the door frame sensor and the steps retract, reach in and turn battery switch off, close and lock door. When you return just open door, stand to the side and remove magnet and steps will deploy, turn battery switch on and you are in business. I'm 6 feet tall and I can't reach thru the screen door and hit the battery switch.
