No power to steps-GT378TS..HELP!!!

Our steps have no "juice" to work them. I've checked the 5 amp fuse in the battery control unit under the coach entry steps. It showed good, but I went ahead a replaced it anyway. Still no work.

I checked the breakers and fuses in the bedroom panel. The diagram didn't show any fuse or breaker related to the step operation.

The step "rocker" switch located in the entry works and the step light under the steps works.

Does anyone have any idea what I'm missing? Is there a fuse possibly in the chassis fuse block under/by the steering column?

Any an all help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,Pete

There's a fuse under the steps that are inside the coach. You have to take the steps out in order to reach the fuse. It's directly wired to the batteries. I believe it's in a dark blue fuse holder or it's dark green. I know it's one of those because I used a Silver Sharpie to write on the case "Steps". The other one goes to the LP Leak detector. If the steps are closed I'd place a magnet on the contact on the frame because when you replace the fuse they are going to open right into you legs.

This should show the fuse location at the control panel behind the steps.

Thanks cfsoistman.

Checked all the fuses you recommended. All good. I guess its probably the motor gone bad without blowing any fuses.

I'll probably get a new motor unless the bad one can be rebuilt.

Thanks again.

HI ! PETE

Before deciding that the problem is the motor I would check out the
magnetic switch on the door, also in the step installation manual
there is a way of connecting the step directly to power which may help
determining if the problem is the control board or the motor.
