Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee Electric RV Steps - LC379145

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (165 Customer Reviews)

Integrated motor kit upgrades the motor on Kwikee electric RV entry steps manufactured before 1999. Improved, fully-sealed gearbox has zinc-plated linkage and a high-torque motor. Includes control unit, switch kit, and hardware.

by:

This upgrade kit had enough torque to completely lift the stairs on my 2004 Bigfoot 3000MH24SL - the other upgrade kit, LC29VR, did not. It works great now. The only difference is the old steps “off” switch, to keep the stairs extended with opening and close the door, was an open circuit for “off” - new controls are an open circuit for “on”. I just reversed and relabeled the switch in the RV so it works as original.


Comments
Step motor still working great after a year - I expect it to last a long time.
Dean - 11/12/2022


by:

The kit had everything you needed. The installation was easy to do. Thanks for your tip in how to maintain an Rv.




by:

After talking to ETrailer they recommended the exact upgrade kit I needed for my older 2002 Monaco Windsor. It wasn't difficult to install and I'm very happy with the Kwikee upgrade kit. I was really impressed, because ETrailer's price were cheaper than Kwikee's. In fact, the people at Kwikee recommended I order it from ETrailer.


Comments
After a year it is still working without any problems.
Tim S - 08/14/2022


by:

Package arrived just a little ragged but everything was intact. Changed the motor and control unit without hassle, everything plugged up just like it was supposed to. Works Great!


Comments
Great! Step is working like it is supposed too! Very grateful for the additional options for the door closure magnets.
Chester - 08/03/2022


by:

Been lated up, it has prevented me from installing the upgrade.
Now I have time and can install it and give a fair review.




by:

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!


Comments
A year later and still extremely happy with all etrailer products I’ve bought, installed and used. The step motor controller package has operated like new. As I mentioned last year, etrailer Is definitely my “go to” company for best products, price and help via “DIY” videos.

by:

Alex provided me with necessary step motor and controller for my 2000 winnebago, was relatively easy to replace for this 82 yr. Many thanks to Alex and Tiffany at etralier.




by:

The replacement motor was exactly what I needed to get my steps working good as new. I'm very happy with my purchase and would purchase again.




by:

It works great and was not too difficult to install. Although it was not exactly for my model motorhome I was able to make it work.




by:

Replaced the failed controller and motor on my 2000 fleetwood discovery completed the instillation in about 45 min. Everything is back to normal works perfect.




by:

The box that all the parts were shipped in was completely torn open and destroyed. I was surprised that no parts had fallen out but they were all there. Also no apparent damage to any of the parts. I would recommend there shipping department do a better job on there packaging!!!




by:

I have a 40 series step that was getting unreliable.
I replaced the controller and motor \ gearbox with the LC379145 kit.
The old harness plug was changed to the new one.
The only thing I had to supply was a few butt connectors and zip ties.
Everything bolted up and works just like it is supposed to.




by:

Simple swap!
Almost a plug and play
item except for having to connect the new plug end via wire connectors.
You do have to switch the wires on the magnetic door sensor too.
Works better than the original!


Comments
Works as good as the day I installed it.

  • RV Power Step Motor for Most Coaches
    The Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee Electric RV Steps part # LC379145 is a very popular upgrade kit which works with most Kwikee Steps.

  • Troubleshooting Door Isolation Switch Not Functioning On RV Power Steps
    I'd check the wiring of the switch at the switch itself as well as back where it attaches to the step. It sounds like either the wiring of the switch is bad or the switch itself is bad. Since it's much more likely to be the wiring that would be what I would suspect. To test the switch you can bypass it by cutting the wires that run to the switch and having the two wires contact each other.

  • Why Are My Kwikee Steps Operating In Reverse
    The only two reasons that the steps would work in reverse is there are two wires switched during installation of the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Conversion/Upgrade Kit part # LC379145 or the door switch from the upgrade kit was not used. Somewhere along the line the Kwikee steps wiring design changed and If you are still using your old door switch instead of the switch that comes with the kit then the steps will work in reverse. Since you said you double checked all of the wiring...

  • Kwikee 28 Series Step Works In Reverse
    It sounds like you switched the two wires when reinstalling the motor. I contacted Kwikee and there are only two reasons they would work in reverse, the switch is wrong or the wires were switched. If you recently upgraded the motor in your Kwikee Electric step with part # LC379145 then the door switch needs to be upgraded as well. Usually that is the reason the steps work in reverse, is someone will change out the motor but not use the switch that came with the kit. Somewhere along the...
