Fit exactly like it was suppose to. Was fairly easy to replace the motor assembly. Didn’t know that the door switch had been updated and needed to be replaced with the new switch. Therefore, until I figured it out, the steps opened and closed in reverse. 863910

I ordered a new motor and gearbox for my electric step Monday morning and received it in Canada Thursday morning. My 9 year old grandson and I decided to tackle it, from the time we got the tools out took the old one off and installed the new parts and put the tools away it took us about 40 minutes. Everything fit the way it should and plugged in perfectly. If and when I need parts I will definitely order from etrailer again. 845278

by:

I received exactly what I needed, when I needed it. It was just a matter of unbolting the existing module and motor and bolting in the new components. The biggest problem was that two of the original motor mounting bolts had broken loose from their retainers and were spinning, but that was easily corrected. I even got a confirmation from one of the techs that I had ordered the correct replacement for my 2000 LaPalma. 820595

Great service from ETrailer but, no service with UPS . UPS doesn’t deliver on Saturday. I ordered 3 day delivery and received my package in 7 days . I will change my delivery service to FED-EX GROUND 6 day delivery. This delayed cost me $132.00 and wasted day of my vacation. Don 818671

Part works great as it should. I had a little trouble because the steps went up when opening the door and down when closing door but you guys walked me thru the wiring change to correct that and I have no regrets. Thanks very much. You guys are great and it saved me a lot of money being able to do the repair myself. 815644

Needed the motor and controller to get my old RV steps working again. The kit was easy to use by removing the old parts and replacing with the new parts in less than 30 minutes. Totally happy with the results, working steps at less cost than replacing the full step package. Etrailer has been my “go to” for this and a Receiver package in the past. Their videos helped in determining the “do it yourself” level of effort and provided confidence in getting the installations done easily and correctly. Thanks! 804298

Had to replace the step motor Assembly on my 2004 Monaco Diplomat. The replacement motor (and controller since I had an older Kwikee step assembly) was an easy install. The new motor and controller arrived within a few days, even during the government imposed shutdown. Etrailer has another satisfied customer. Hope I don't need their services in the future, but if I do need parts, Etailer will be my first lookup. 795316

The step is of good quality but the instructions are worthless there’s no color codes they don’t even tell you what wires go to what, So make sure you have lots of low amp fuses so you don’t burn up your new step motor and controls 783875

Ask the Experts about this Kwikee Accessories and Parts

  • Is There a Replacement for Gear Box 151320
    The 151320 gear box for your Kwikee Steps is no longer available, unfortunately. What that means is your only option at this point is to replace the entire unit. If you had a Kwikee 32 Series Step you would need Lippert Kwikee 32 Series Electric Step # LC372261, for example. If you let me know what steps you have I would be happy to help you find a replacement.

  • Replacement Motor Kit for Lippert Kwikee 39 Series Step Assembly
    I spoke with my contact regarding your Kwikee 39 Series (model 909506000) step assembly. He stated that the Motor Conversion/Upgrade Kit # LC379145 you referenced is actually not compatible with your particular Series 39 assembly. You will instead need to use the Lippert Replacement Kit # LC379769. This kit will work perfectly with your steps and includes the IMGL (integrated motor/gearbox/linkage) and the 9510 Control Unit.

  • Options for Replacement Motor for Pre-IMGL Kwikee 32 Step On RV
    The upgrade kit part # LC379145 that you referenced won't work for you since before 1999 is the PRE-IMGL style of step and the kits now offered are only for the new style. This kit is for 1999 to 2005 motor setups. If you wanted to just replace your motor you'd need the part # LC379608. Or you could get a new Kwikee 32 step like the part # LC372261 which is the modern version of the step you have.

  • Recommended Upgrade Kit for Kwikee Steps with Part Number 909-506-000
    I have everything you need to upgrade the Kwikee steps you have on your Workhorse chassis.

  • Replacement Kwikee 909506000 Controle Module
    I spoke with my contact at Lippert regarding your older Kwikee step assembly with the 909506000 control module. He stated that in order to replace the control unit all you need is the part # LC379606. This is designed for pre-IMGL step units like yours that were manufactured between 1999 and 2005. You do not need to replace any other components.

  • Replacement Control Module for Part 909506000 in Kwikee Powered Single Step
    Your Kwikee step's control module 909506000 can be replaced with Lippert part # LC379146. This part fits steps made between 1999 and 2005 and based on your serial number 46443 this is the correct part. I confirmed with Lippert, maker of the Kwikee steps.

  • Replacement Motor and Gearbox for Kwikee RV Step Using Motor 151332 and Gearbox 151320
    If your RV step's motor is dead (no operation even if you bypass the switches and directly apply 12V power to the motor terminals) then it will require replacement. Your gearbox may still be okay so long as it has not made bad noises when it last operated. If the step gearbox made any unusual mechanical noises like popping or grinding sounds then it too may be damaged. Thank you for the part serial numbers you provided. My contact at Lippert Components, who makes the Kwikee steps, advised...

  • Replacement Motor for Kwikee 32 Series Steps on 1996 Damon Motor Home
    If you have the Kwikee 32 Series Step Assembly on your 1996 Damon Motorhome, the correct replacement motor by itself is part # LC379608. For the motor, linkage, and gearbox you will use the part # LC379145. This kit will actually upgrade your older style motor and control board to the new current style.

    Yes, you are correct that the 151320 gear box for your Kwikee Steps is no longer available and the solution is to replace the entire steps.

  • How To Confirm Fit of the Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee Electric RV Steps
    The Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee Electric RV Steps part # LC379145 is a very popular upgrade kit which works with most Kwikee Steps. In order to confirm this is correct you'll need to look for the series number of your steps which should be on a tag somewhere on the step assembly. If the series number is 22, 23, 28A, 30, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 38, or 40 then the kit will work.

  • Replacement for Kwikee Step Controller 9513 Manufactured Before 1999
    We do have a solution though there isn't an exact replacement module for a 9513 unit manufactured before 1999. Instead, what you'll need to do is upgrade your steps with the Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC379145. This will give you a new - and better performing - motor, linkage, control unit, switch kit, and hardware. I have added links to a couple video reviews I recommend checking out as well.

  • Replacement Motor for Kwikee Series 32 Steps
    Based off of the part number you referenced it looks like you might actually have Kwikee Series 32 steps.

This kit is compatible with Kwikee Serieseries 22, 23, 28A, 30, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 38, and 40 steps.

  • Replacement Stair Motor for 2001 Georgie Boy Motorhome
    If you just want the motor, the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Replacement Kit For Pre-IMGL # LC379608 is the correct fit.

  • Replacement Motor Solution for Kwikee Series 32 RV Step with Motor 151332
    Thanks for all the info you gave on your step setup. We've had similar questions to this before and have spoken with Lippert about what the options are. There is a replacement motor available only for those parts that show number 5973820. If your motor shows this part number then you can use replacement motor part # LC379608. If it does not have that specific item number then there is no longer a replacement motor and you will need to replace the entire step unit, according to my Lippert...

    Yes, the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Conversion/Upgrade Kit part # LC379145 would have everything that you need to get your steps going again assuming the gearbox/arm were the damaged components and not the actual step assembly. I spoke to my contact at Lippert about your door switch and manual shutoff and they said that you would want to use the door switch included with this kit, not the one you have now. The manual shutoff switch will no longer be used with the upgrade kit....

  • Solution for 2003 Kwikee Steps Will Not Fully Extend or Fully Retract
    The issue you are having sounds to me like you have a weakened motor, but if you also have play that could mean the linkage is also problematic. Since you mentioned your Tiffin Phaeton is a 2003 model, that means you will not have the Integrated Motor Gear Linkage (IMGL) style motor, gearbox and control and would need an upgrade. For that you need the Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC379145 which includes motor, linkage, control unit, switch kit, and hardware, and fits...

    Thank you for the details about your powered RV step and the troubleshooting you've already done. That is really helpful since you've eliminated the motor/gear assembly as the cause for the issue by verifying it works when directly powered with +12VDC.

    We may have a solution for you but controller 90950600 has been discontinued.

I am attaching a wiring diagram for the control module for you to check out. If you take a look at the yellow wire it actually is meant to retract the step when it is connected to12V power.
