Video Transcript for Review of Kwikee RV and Camper Steps Parts - Replacement Motor for 42 Series - LC379167

Ellen: Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at, and today we're going to be taking a quick look at the replacement motor for your quickie step. This is going to be for the 42 series steps. That's going to be the one that's kind of an enclosed housing, and it's going to slide directly out from your RV rather than kind of deploying out and down. So this is going to be that replacement motor if one happened to not be working for you, it started to fail out. This is going to be an older style step.

It's manufactured since 1999, so things can go bad. And this is going to be that piece that we need to make sure that everything's working again.So here's a little closer look at it. We're going to plug in our wiring up here at the top with that little port that's in there, and then the linkage arm is going to connect to this little gear here. So this is the part that's going to operate the automatic shutdown. So if you happen to deploy those steps out maybe a little too close to a pylon or some kind of obstacle, and it happens to strike that, it will automatically retract the step.

So if that's gotten broken or maybe got fried out, that would maybe be a reason why you'd want to replace this. Has the holes here to mount in place. Does not come with any additional hardware.As far as specs with this, it's going to be about six and three quarter inches long, and then four and three eighths inches wide. And about one inch, or excuse me, about two inches tall. The current draw for a clockwise operation is going to be 17.2 amps.

Counter-clockwise is 20.1 amps. The RPM rating for this is 40.4 in a clockwise configuration, and then 31.8 for counter-clockwise. It does weigh just about a pound and a half. 1.63 pounds. Has a one-year warranty and is made in the USA.That's about all there is to it for a replacement motor for the quickie step.

I hope this video's been helpful in deciding if this is going to be the right component for you. If not, we do have others available here, so check them out. Thanks for watching.

The motor looks like an exact replacement of the original. I have not yet installed it but expect no issues. The one disappointing feature is that it was advertise as made in America which confirmed the sale for me, but upon receiving the motor it is stamped made in China.

It is functioning well. No issues at all.

I replaced a 10 year old RV step motor on my 45’ Navagator. Installation was easy and Still working great after 1 year and the steps have gone in and out well over 100 times. etrailer your team is Awesome!


Got this step motor for our Country Couch motorhome. Speedy delivery and it was the exact part we needed. Looked exactly like the original. I like that.. etrailer is in my Favorites page.

Its still working like brand new. Got in my Favorites..

ETrailer's knowledge and service was spectacular! I thought it would be impossible to find a part for a 25 year old coach. The part arrived in three days. Installation was a bit difficult since the part had been redesigned, which is not ETrailer's fault. The part fit up was perfect. Once installed, the part performed flawlessly.
I'll use ETrailer in the future


Got the exact parts I ordered
very much for getting my parts shipped and delivered in a timely fashion

I purchased a replacement motor for a Kwikee series 42 step
The motor was a perfect fit and operates as it should
The shipping was extremely fast and the price was reasonable
I don’t usually do reviews, but I am so impressed with this transaction
Thank you


Thanks for the service


Replacement motor for older motorhome electric step. Same manufacturer as original motor. Other sites were out of stock. Product was in stock & delivered faster than expected. Fair price, easy installation & works great.


The motor fit perfectly. I used it on a 2006 Beaver patriot thunder front doorstep.


Service was excellent and part was a direct replacement.



Timely delivery and quality part


Fit great works perfect

  • Troubleshooting Kwikee 42 Series Step that Motor Continues to Run for 2-3 Seconds After Steps Extend
    It could be that your Kwikee Series 42 Steps # LC372779 are just hanging up and bit and could use some lubricating spray on the gears; you'll want to use a dry silicone spray on these parts similar to the Roadmaster Lube Master # RM-747 to keep everything in working order. With that being said, this is also a sign that the motor on your Kwikee Series 42 steps could be weakening, so you'll want to keep an eye on this going forward. If it ends up that the motor goes out on your steps and...

  • Replacement Water Pump Motor and Step Motor for 2003 GulfStream Friendship Quattro Motorhome
    On your 2003 Gulfstream Friendship Quattro, there are a couple of things I can help you with but not the outside mirror motors. I can help with the step motor and the water pump. For your water pump (since a motor isn't separate), I recommend the Flow Max RV Fresh Water Pump - 12 Volt - 3.3 Gallons Per Minute - 45 PSI # LC689052 if your current pump is powered by the coach batteries. If it is powered by shore power only, then I recommend the 115V option # LC689054. I've attached review...

  • Replacement Entry Step Gears for 2007 Beaver Patriot Thunder RV
    The steps on your 2007 Beaver Patriot Thunder coach look most like the Lippert Kwikee 42 Series Electric Step - 2 Steps - 6" Drop/Rise - 25-1/4" Wide - 300 lbs # LC372779. Without knowing if that is actually what you have, it is simply an educated guess for a complete replacement and you will need to check the measurements listed on the product page. If you want to get the information printed on the motor itself under the step I can help with a replacement part. Without clarity I can...
