Unfortunately I took a stab in the dark based on symptoms and it turned out that I didn't need this part. The part is working fine. So was the old part. In the end, the culprit was the motor assembly. There was nothing wrong with the motor itself but the integrated gears jammed at random times. Once that was replaced the steps have been working as they should. 844745

Probably did not need to replace the one on the coach but when doing the controller board and motor I said why not. In hindsight it was a good choice as the one on the coach had some teeth missing upon further inspection. 807807

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. 771279

  • 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...

  • Kwikee 32 Series Step Replacement Motor Recommendation Pre-IMGL Part # 5973820
    I spoke with my contact at Lippert regarding your existing motor/gearbox model 5973820. He stated that the correct replacement motor is the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Replacement Kit # LC379608. This is a direct replacement for the motor that originally came with your assembly and will work perfectly with the existing control unit. For the gearbox you'd then want the part # LC379160 that you mentioned as well.

  • 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 Motor 1101422 / 214-1001 and Gear Box for Kwikee Electric RV Steps
    It does sound like a motor and gear box issue, and so long as your steps are from 2006 or newer (there should be a sticker verifying the year on the motor) then we have exactly what you need with a new motor and and gear box/linkage for your 1101422 / 214-1001 motor: - Replacement Motor for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC379147 - Replacement Gear Box and A Linkage for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC379160 If your steps are from before 2006 you would need to replace them, so I have...

  • Replacement Motor, Gearbox and Linkage for Kwikee 26 Series Steps with 5973820 Motor
    According my contact at Lippert, your best option is to use the Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee 26 Series Electric RV Steps part # LC379801 which replaces the motor, linkage, and control module on your Kwikee 26 Series steps made between 1999 and 2006. He also confirmed that these steps use their C linkage, not the A linkage. While just the replacement motor for your original Kwikee 5973820 motor is available as part # LC379608, the gearbox you need is obsolete, which is why you need the...

  • Troubleshooting Kwikee Step on 2013 Jayco Greyhawk that Clicks
    Sounds like the motor is on it's way out if it's clicking. Similar to how a car starter will start clicking when it has failed and draws too much amperage to operate. Since the trailer is newer (2013 Jayco Greyhawk) you would most likely need the newer style of Kwikee motor part # LC379147 which fits Kwikee steps manufactured after 2005.

  • 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.

  • Need Gearbox and A Linkage for Kwikee Series 32 RV Steps
    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.

  • Replacement Gear Box for Kwikee 32 Series Electric Step Assembly
    I spoke with my contact at Lippert regarding your Kwikee Step 32 Series Assembly. She said that as long as the steps were put on your camper after 2006, the Replacement Gear Box and Linkage # LC379160 that you referenced is indeed the correct replacement. She said based on the motor number you provided it is most likely a post-2006 unit, but you will still want to verify this. If you happen to have an older model then the entire step assembly will need to be replaced as replacement...

  • Replacement Parts for 1997 Kwikee 32 Series Step Assembly
    I spoke with my contact at Lippert regarding replacement parts for your Kwikee 32 Series step assembly. He stated that the needed gear box and linkage for your 1997 assembly with the 151320 gear box is unfortunately no longer available. Your only option is to replace the entire unit. For this you can use the Lippert Kwikee 32 Series Electric Step # LC372261. This will bolt right up to your existing brackets and includes everything you need for installation.

  • Gearbox Recommendation for Kwikee Step on 2006 Winnebago View
    You are correct and the linkage does need to be replaced. For that you would want the part # LC379160 which matches what you have. My contact at Lippert technical confirmed that two washers, not four, are supplied with the Kwikee Step Gear/Linkage with A, part # LC379160. Typically only two of the four mounting holes for this part will require the shim washers. The shims will go between the gear box and the step. You'll see them as you take off the old gear box.

  • Replacement Gearbox and Linkage Assembly for Kwikee Step on 2004 Winnebago Brave Motorhome
    Powered RV steps that still operate but that make bad mechanical noises may not need a new motor, but you're right that it is likely you'll need a new gearbox and/or linkage. There are two possible kits for your step unit. Part # LC379161 is the B style linkage for the Kwikee Step Series 28, 31, 37 and 39. This is Kwikee part number 1101426. Part # LC379162 is the C style linkage for the Series 26 step, Kwikee part 1101427. My contact at Lippert/Kwikee said that on the bottom...

  • Replacement Motor for Lippert Components Kwikee Step
    I reached out to my contact at Lippert Components and they confirmed that the old motor and the new gearbox are not compatible. With the step frame cracked and the gearbox cracked your best option would be to replace the complete steps. If you have the Lippert Components Kwikee Step # LC3722618 you will need the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Conversion Kit # LC379145.
