Steps sometimes not retracting

Sometimes when we close the door, the steps don't retract when they are supposed. All the proper switches are activated. I believe it's an issue with the sensor. Anyone else have this problem?

Yes... that's been stated on here before. It's just the magnet on the bottom of the screen not activating the retraction.

Opening and slamming the door usually works

Yup, a hammer fixes everything.

To the OP, check the magnet. It may be perfectly aligned, but not close enough to activate the switch.

We had the same problem. We thought it was a problem with the rig at first and then I figured out it was the magnet. We just slam it or open and close it until the steps retract. Annoying, but quick fix when it happens.

At least yours doesn't open and close repeatedly as you're driving down the road....

Is yours doing that? There is a safety in place that will not allow the steps to extend if the ignition is on.
