Replacement Magnetic Door Sensor for Kwikee Electric RV Steps - Round - White - LC379400

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (7 Customer Reviews)

Replaces the door sensor used to override the automatic retraction on your Kwikee powered RV entry steps. Round tabs mount on the door and doorframe. Wire to steps to stop retraction when they come into contact.

When the step on my Monaco motor home did not Auto retract it was a head scratcher until I performed some basic tests that revealed the magnetic switch did not work. A MAGNET against the sensor should activate the step. When that did not happen further investigation revealed the MAGNET end was ok but the switch end was not responding
A quick search for the part showed that etrailer had the parts and shipped them quickly. Installation was an effort but fun and now everything works as it should .
Not my first purchase from etrailer and certainly not the last.

  • Recommendation For Replacement Door Switch For Keystone Montana Travel Trailer
    I contacted Lippert Components who manufactures this switch and they told me that this particular part, Item # LC379400, is a "normally closed" switch. Let me know if you have any more questions or need help with anything else.

  • How Does the Lippert Components Kwikee Magnetic Door Switch 379400 Work
    A normally closed circuit is one that has continuity in its normal position. The normal position of the Lippert Components Kwikee 3/4" Core Round Magnetic Door Switch part # LC379400 is when the plunger is depressed. Therefore, continuity will flow through the switch when the plunger is depressed but not when the plunger is extended. If you need a similar switch that is normally open then you will want to use the Lippert Components Kwikee Pleated Plunger Door Switch part # LC379407.

  • What Magnetic Component Do I Need for My Kwikee Double Electric Step?
    I went ahead and called my contact at Lippert, and he said that more than likely, you need to change the magnetic door switch. If you have a newer model of Kwikee, you need an open circuit door switch. This is a black switch. For this part, I recommend the Replacement Magnetic Door Sensor for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC369299.

  • Magnetic Door Switch for Kwikee RV Steps that is Normally Closed
    The "normal" part of the normally open or normally closed wording in the switch descriptions has to do with which condition the circuit needs to be in for the step to close. Since when you opened the circuit the step finally retracted that means the switch setup you have is normally closed. So for a replacement switch you'd need the # LC379400.

  • What is Opposite Polarity of RV Kwikee Switch 378054
    The opposite of the part # LC378054 that you referenced is the white switch setup part # LC379400 which will work perfectly for you since the # LC378054 was opposite of what you need. The white switch is normally closed and the black is normally open.

  • Is the Lippert Kwikee Pleated Plunger Door Switch LC379407 Normally Open or Normally Closed
    The Lippert Components Kwikee Pleated Plunger Door Switch # LC379407 is a normally open switch. If you're in need of a normally closed switch, you can use the Lippert Components Kwikee 3/4" Core Round Magnetic Door Switch part # LC379400. The closed position in this switch is when the plunger is depressed.

  • New Kwikee Steps Work In Reverse
    If you can provide me with the exact model of Kwikee Steps you have then that would certainly help but whenever we hear that the steps are working in reverse that usually means you have the incorrect door switch, normally closed vs normally open or it is installed wrong. For a normally closed door switch we have the Lippert Components Kwikee Round Magnetic Door Switch part # LC379400 and for a normally open door switch we have the Lippert Components Kwikee Pleated Plunger Door Switch part...

  • Picking Out Replacement Door Switch Solution for Kwikee RV Steps that Work in Reverse
    For a normally closed door switch we have the Lippert Components Kwikee Round Magnetic Door Switch part # LC379400 and for a normally open door switch we have the Lippert Components Kwikee Pleated Plunger Door Switch part # LC379407. So in your situation you are closing the circuit with the door open and that is working in reverse of what you need a normally open circuit so that the steps retract when the door is closed.

  • Choosing Correct Door Switch For Kwikee Series 34 Steps
    Yes, the Replacement Magnetic Door Sensor # LC378054 is the correct sensor type for your Kwikee Series 34 Electric RV Step # LC3722862 manufactured since February 1999. The black door switches for the Kwikee steps are normally open switches. Steps produced prior to February 1999 use White Switches # LC379400 that are normally closed switches.

  • Solution for Having Kwikee RV Automatic Door Switch that Works in Reverse
    Go look at the door switch color you have now. If it's white and it's working backwards you need the part # LC378054 which is the black version and is opposite of what you'd have. If it's black then you'd want the white version # LC379400.

  • Troubleshooting Kwikee Steps That Retract When the Door Opens and Extend When The Door Closes
    It sounds like the door sensor is not correct for the control box on your Kwikee Step. With a Kwikee Step like the # LC3747452 there are 2 different door sensors. You will have a white(normally closed) sensors and black(normally open) sensors. All the newer steps will use black sensors so if you may have reused an older white sensor it would need to be replaced. Here are a couple of the black and white sensors that we carry.
