Make sure your step switch is in the retract mode. Even though you start the vehicle and the steps retract they may not always retract fully if the switch is in the "steps out" mode while driving.

I found the cause of my issue with the steps being sluggish and not fully retracting! I put carpet on the steps bought from CW . The top step carpet was not centered and was binding when retracting. Problem solved!

I have a 2013 GT 378TS and last winter my steps would not function in cold weather. Eventually they may extend and if they did sometimes it would take several minutes for them to retrack. The magnet was not the issue. Not sure what it was, but most likely the control unit did not like cold weather. Since they always had a very loud clunk in them from day one, I got the factory to replace the Lippert steps with kwikey steps.
