Electric steps - goodbye Lippert, hello Kwikee
After multiple failures with the Lippert electric steps, Forest River is now replacing with a new Kwikee System Step. I drove to Elkhart to have this installed yesterday (long day of driving). It took about 45 minutes (plus 9 hours of driving) and it's like night and day. The new step is quieter, smoother, sturdier and actually retracts when it's supposed to retract.
I have to give FR credit that this was an outstanding change. I would recommend anyone having trouble with the Lippert step and still under warranty, get it replaced with the kwikee step. If I was out of warrany, I'd pay the $600-$700 without hesitation.
