No matter what the door switch position is they always come out. Switch off - they stay extended, switch on - they move with the door. I would like to have them retracted with the door open, which according to the instructions should be possible...
He's a tried and proven method
With step switch on and master power on:
Close screen door only-steps will retract
Reach through screen door access and shut off main power
Hold screen door closed and then then close outer door and lock up.
On your return steps will extend the moment you open the door. It works if you can reach in and secure main power, otherwise your batteries will weaken.
