Typically, the step switch is only set to on if you want the steps to retract when the door is closed. If you want the steps to stay out at camp site set the step switch to off. In otherwords, the switch is only to retract the steps when closing the door. With the switch on
the steps should still retract with the ignition and also extend when the door is opened (whether the engine is running or not). This is for the lippert steps. The kwikee steps, I believe function about the same, maybe not exactly.
