Cousin01 I agree there is a bigger electrical problem. The Amber light under the stair no longer works. This all started when they had to replace a "circuit board" in the unit because the arctic pac wasn't working. Thanks.

Can any Solera owners tell me if the stair is supposed to extend when the RV door is opened or just when the engine is turned off?

The manufacturer states they are supposed to extend when Rv door is opened and retract when RV door is closed . I didn't know if this might be an optional feature.

Thanks for the help
The screen door has a sensor located on the lower hinge side of the screen door, that will actuate the step to deploy, when the screen door is opened, not the coach door. Also, when the ignition switch is put in the start position, that will also send a signal to retract the step.

As to your stuck step, apply a light grease to the ball swivels (you will see what I mean upon inspection) and clean and lube the gears, as they pick up road dirt due to there exposure. I use a dry lubricant on those to minimize road dirt.

2015 24R Coach Step Fuse

My coach step wouldn't move. Of course, it was in the out position.

Tracked it down to a blown fuse, though I haven't figured out why the fuse blew. I guess I'll try lubing everything up.

Anyway, the fuse is not obvious. It is located behind the "Battery Control Center" cover on the left side of the entrance stairs. The fuse is number F5, a 20 amp fuse labeled "Electric Seat".

Just in case you need to find it...

"Electric seat". Do let us know what thats all about. Maybe its because when extended you can rest a bit.

Thanks for the information on the fuse location I couldn't locate it. The RV has been in the shop since January 8. Hopefully they are fixing the sporadic step problem along with some other minor warranty issues.

Though I have not had problems with the solera step I've had it twice on a previous RV. Both times turned out to be loose ground wire. Likely vibrates when you drive so sometimes works, sometimes doesn't.

Second time around I secured with a larger fastner.

My coach step seems to work, but then seems to need some recovery time before it will work again. Very odd. At least it hasn't blown the fuse (again) (lately) and the light is still working when the step is out.

The fix for the step was to replace the controller. Our step was always sluggish before finally quitting. Now it responds quickly and functions like it should.
