Video Transcript for Lippert Components RV and Camper Steps LC379160 Review

Today, we're gonna take a look at the replacement gear box and linkage for the Lippert components 2006 to current Kwikee electric steps. Now, this will replace the gear box and the curved A-linkage for Lippert components Kwikee electric steps, and you can tell if you have the A-linkage on your steps because there will be an A that's embossed on the linkage arm. This part here is designed to fit the 2006 to current Kwikee 22, 23, 27, 28A, 30, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 38, and 40 series steps. So it does fit a wide range of the Kwikee steps. Does come with the two washers to help you install it, but that should do it for the review on the replacement gearbox and A-linkage for the Lippert components 2006 to current Kwikee electric steps.

Great product and quick service. Removal and installation of parts took 10 minutes and I was done!!!

The replacement part worked but it took some alterations. The person on the phone did warn us. I appreciated that she went the route of least $$$. Our back up plan was to have to order a few other newer replacements if this didn’t work. Nice of her to help with our find. Your company will be my first place in looking for future parts.

This is the exact replacement for my Itasca Nation 24J step. The old unit failed at the attachment to the step not in the gears so it was a very easy replacement! Remove the old unit, switch out the motor from the old unit to the new unit (might buy a spare motor for future step issues), lined up the swing arm, put the pin in and my step is now fixed. I would say a few directions in the box would be helpful but I'm the kind who takes a picture before removing the part so I can be sure I'm putting it back in correctly. One suggestion to installers, don't tighten the four nuts until everything is linked up and make the motor move into the extended position to link everything up at first. Take your time this is a very simple repair, well worth the time in the driveway instead of taking to an RV repair location.

The shipment included a gear box for the electric step on our RV, which solved my problem and has performed without problems. All of my transactions with etrailer have been outstanding. Your product videos and supplementary information are great. Not many companies follow up like you do. Keep up the good work.

The product worked perfect. I had a set of kwikee steep on my class a campers they would not retract all the way and you could hear it skipping a broken tooth on the gear in the gear box that operated the stairs which is was driven by a motor. I had called a couple suppliers for a new gear box and they both told me I needed to order the a complete kit for that series stairs that means changing the door sensor the motor rewiring etc well 300 bucks and a lot more labor. Called Megham at e-trailer who was great she did some research found me a gearbox that would work about 2 hours of my time. E-trailer never fails to deliver for me and Meghsn is great and knows what she is doing. After listening to the other 2 places I wasn't sure e-trailers solutions was going to work how could something work save me over 200 bucks and 2 hours of my time but Meghan and e-trailer came though.. now I,m thinking why did I even call the other places. Thanks etrailer.

I have a series 32 step from a 1999 coach. I thought I could use my old motor assembly on the gear/ linkage but it was not compatible with my motor. So, I returned it and ended up purchasing the complete conversion/ upgrade kit, Item # LC379145.

The replacement gearbox and linkage arrived quickly, in perfect condition. The installation went easily. My RV Kwickee Electric Stairs are now working again. Great.

Will order from them again if needed.

  • Replacement for Motor Part 1101422 & 214-1001 on 1997 Motorhome
    The reason the assembly looks pretty new is because based on the motor 1101422 / 214-1001 you mentioned, your motorhome's steps were upgraded. The only catch is you have to know when this upgrade occurred, which I realize is problematic for a used motorhome. But if this update occurred in 2005 or before you need a new step assembly. If it happened after 2005 we have exactly what you need with the Replacement Motor for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC379147 and Replacement Gear Box and A...

In order to replace the motor for these steps you'll want to use the Replacement Motor for Kwikee Electric RV Steps - 12V # LC379147. If you also need the gear box replaced you'll want to use the Replacement Gear Box and A Linkage # LC379160. These are the correct replacement parts, per Lippert, for your Kwikee model 366043 steps.

  • Replacement Gear for Kwikee Steps 9010000220 On Fleetwood Bounder Motorhome
    It sounds like you are going to need either the Replacement Motor for Kwikee Electric RV Steps part # LC379147 or the Replacement Gear Box and A Linkage part # LC379160. I spoke with Lippert and was able to cross reference the info provided so I can confirm these are the correct parts. In order to determine which exact component is creating the noise, I recommend isolating each (unhooking shaft from motor and applying power etc). as that would then give you your answer.

  • Replacement Motor For Kwikee 32 Series Steps
    After a bit of cross referencing I found that you have the Kwikee 32 series steps, and they were manufactured in 2005, so the correct motor is the Replacement Motor for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC379147. If you are needing more than the motor, the replacement gear box and linkage is # LC379160. The replacement Control Unit for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC379146.

  • The Kwikee Control Module Doesnt Match The One On My 1990 Allegro RV Step
    Your local RV shop is correct that the Control Unit for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC379146 did replace the original unit from your 1990 Allegro, but it is not the only part that is needed to get it installed. This will only fit motors from 2006 to present, so you will need a couple other things to get it to work properly. Typically in your case, I would have recommended the Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC379145 as it includes everything needed to accomplish this feat....

    It sounds like something might be bent or damaged either on the steps, gearbox, or motor of your Kwikee Electric RV Step Complete Assembly 32 Series # LC372261. First remove the gearbox and motor and manually move the steps to see if they are the cause. If not then check the gear on the outside of the motor housing for any teeth that are damaged. If there is no damage then the culprit is most likely the internal gears in the gearbox. you can replace the gearbox with the Replacement Gear...

  • How To Find Correct Replacement Gear Box for Kwikee Electric Steps
    I do have an option for you but I don't have any reference to that part number and neither does Kwikee, are you sure this is correct? If so then you can find the correct gear box using the series model of the step such as Series 32 which is printed on a label under the step. The Replacement Gear Box and A Linkage for Kwikee Electric RV Steps part # LC379160 for example is the correct replacement gear box for Series 32 Steps which are most common.

If the steps do work without the linkage then the linkage is likely bad and would need to be replaced for which we have the Replacement Gear Box and A Linkage for Kwikee Electric RV Steps part # LC379160.

    The replacement gear box linkage for the existing Kwikee Series 32 steps on your motorhome is the Lippert Kwikee Step Gear/Linkage # LC379160. This is specifically designed for certain electric steps in the Kwikee series including your Series # 32 model.

  • Will Replacement Gear Box LC379160 Work with 5973820 Original Motor on Kwikee 32 Series Steps
    Yes, the Replacement Gear Box and A Linkage for Kwikee Electric RV Steps part # LC379160 will work perfectly with your older motor model 59730820. Because the new motor # LC379608 is a direct replacement for the older 59730820 motor manufactured from 1999 to 2006, the replacement gear box is compatible with either. I also confirmed that the # LC379160 gear box is the correct replacement for your Kwikee 32 Series Steps.

  • Replacement Gear Box and Motor for RV Steps with Part Number 366043

  • Solution for Kwikee Series 32 Step that Won't Retract and Extend
    Normally if the Kwikee steps are having a hard time fully extending or retracting and there's a jerking motion at the same time that would indicate that there's a gear, gear box or linkage problem. Dry grease would not typically cause this problem but that doesn't mean it's not related in someway. Based on you having the Kwikee 32 Series the gear box is most likely the issue and you'd want the part # LC379160 to replace it.
