Hi forum, the electric stairs on my 2012 Georgetown have gone bananas. when the stairs retract the electric motor wont stop. As it keeps turning, the gears make a loud solid sounding pop pop pop pop pop until i open the door again.
when we were on the road i had to shut the door and then jerk the power connector plug apart to get it to stop.
when i plug it in again and open the door it goes out fine.
i just read here
that the unit detects obstacles by high current so that if the battery is low it will not detect an obstacle. i wonder if that also applies to the retracting so that when it retracts to the stop then the current goes up and stops the motor when it it is working properly.
is my problem low batteries... going to get the volt meter...
i have read there are alot of problems with the controllers on these, but i didnt want to replace it until i know thats the problem.
how does the controller know the stairs are in? is there a limit switch on the stairs mechanism?
i also read that some other owners added a switch on the hot side of the power wires going to the stair unit. i guess i could rig that up and just use it to stop the stair where i want it, but i dont want to lower my resale.
