The steps should be hard wired to the battery for safety. If wired through the battery switch just imagine your inside after you turn off the MH engine and the steps are up. Before you open the door you turn off the battery switch, open the door and the steps DO NOT deploy! That next step will ruin your day!
Obtain a small, square magnet at any hardware store.
When leaving the coach in storage:
Have battery switch on.
Have step switch on. Steps deployed.
Step out of coach with magnet in hand.
Turn around and place magnet on door frame sensor and steps should retract as if the door was closed.
Reach in and turn off step switch and battery switch.
Close and lock door.
When you return:
Remove magnet. Steps should deploy.
Turn on battery switch and step switch.
This procedure works with Lippert steps that are hard wired to the battery bank. I would think all model steps should be like this IF hardwired to the battery bank.
