Everything worked great easy to install. Have to be careful to order the right one there is a series 28 and series 28A and they take different model replacement kits. 612950

This was a rebuild kit for the Kwikee Series 28 motorized step on my motor home. The control unit that originally came with the step assembly had failed, so the step would extend, but not retract. I could not simply buy a replacement control unit because it was obsolete. (The unit is over 17 years old.) This kit included a new motor/gear linkage assembly, the controller, integrated wiring harness, and hardware. The instructions included with the kit were very detailed, but really not needed because it was simply a matter of removing the old hardwire and installing the new. Even the wiring was the same. I now have a step that works like it's supposed to. 850891

The Kwikee update kit that I purchased a year ago from etrailer, breathed new life into my 2000 vintage step and it has operated flawlessly ever since. Thanks etrailer! 747125

I was impressed with the new motor/gear box, control unit and switches. The thickness of the cardboard box was no match for the weight of the motor. The motor almost escaped it's containment during shipping. I did not have to use the new switch since my door switch was a 'Normally Open Style'. The installation was simple and the step and all the features work well. I am HAPPY. 617979

The new controls matched up and was a good and quick change out. If I would have put my man instinct aside and read all of the instructions and changed out the door sensor I would have been done sooner. Thanks for a good price and product. 582088

  • Troubleshooting Kwikee 39 Series Step That Keeps Blowing Motorhome Fuse
    I reached out to my contact at Lippert who said that if you keep getting a fuse that blows when everything is connected for your Kwikee 39 Series Steps then something is going on with your wiring. You either have a damaged (pinched or exposed wire) or a loose connection somewhere. Try checking visually to see if there is anything that is damaged first. I have attached a diagram that you can check out to make sure everything is connected properly. The only other thing that I've seen people...

  • Replacement Gearbox, Motor, and Linkage for 2002 Allegro Bus
    Thank you so much for all of the info! I reached out to my contact at Lippert and he said that with how old your setup is you're going to be better off going with an entire replacement kit because if you just replace one component right now then you'll likely need to upgrade the other component soon. If your 2002 Allegro Bus has a single step then the kit you need is part # LC379769, but if it has a double step then the kit you need it part # LC379145.

Attached is a wiring diagram (which some of the connections are already completed) and an installation video for you to reference if you are going to be doing the installation yourself.

  • Replacement Parts for Older Lippert Kwikee Series 28 Electric Coach Step
    I confirmed with my contact at Lippert that motor kit # LC379608 and linkage kit # LC379648 are indeed the correct replacement parts for your older Kwikee Series 28 electric coach step. My contact indicated you do NOT also need linkage kit # LC379161. We do also have an update kit for this older step, part # LC379769, which includes the latest design integrated motor/gearbox/linkage. This brings your step more in line with their current production models. Another option that might...

  • Replacement B Linkage for Older Series 28 Kwikee Electric RV Steps
    For your Kwikee Series 28 steps we do have the right linkage, though if yours were never upgraded and the steps have the original parts, having been manufactured between 1999 and 2005, the linkage you need is the Replacement B Linkage for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC379648. The Replacement Gear Box and B Linkage for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC379161 only works with the upgraded steps. At some point for your motorhome I do recommend upgrading to the Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee 28,...

  • Replacement Kwikee Step 28 Series Linkage and Motor
    I reached out to my contact at Lippert and on the 28 series step you will have a B linkage. If you were just updating the linkage, then you would use the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Gear/Linkage with B # LC379161. If you were just updating the motor, then you would use the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Replacement # LC379147. You can simply replace these components, but you may want to consider the Lippert Components Kwikee Steps Upgrade Kit for 28 Series # LC379769 which will...

  • Replacement Motor and Controller for Kwikee 28 Series Steps On 1999 American Eagle Motorhome
    I spoke with Lippert about your Kwikee 28 Series Step and they informed me that the correct control module is the Replacement Control Unit for Kwikee Electric RV Steps part # LC379606 and the correct motor is the Replacement Motor with Mounting Plate for Kwikee Electric RV Steps part # LC379608. That said, it may be best to just obtain the update kit using the Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee 25 Series Electric RV Steps part # LC379769 (Works With 25/28 Series). I am not able to determine...

  • Replacement Parts for Kwikee Series 28 Electric RV Steps For Complete Setup
    For your Lippert Series 26 step, I recommend the Lippert Components Kwikee Step power switch and door kit # LC369311 and then using controller # LC379146. Then you will also add the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Replacement Light # LC379414. This will work the single step # LC3747451 which comes with gears and motor only. If you are unsure of the current gear box and motor, then you would use the complete kit # LC379769.

  • Replacement Motor and Control Unit for Kwikee Series 39 Steps
    The replacement components for your Kwikee Series 39 Steps on your 1999 Damon Ultrasport include the following: Control Unit - # LC379606 Motor - # LC379147 Gearbox - # LC379161 Since your gearbox looks to be in good working order I'd try applying power to the motor directly to see if everything operates as it should. If it does then I'd agree that just the control unit needs to be replaced. If it doesn't then you likely need to replace the motor as well. If your gearbox needs...

  • Parts Needed to Upgrade Older Kwikee 28 Series Steps
    To make the new motor # LC379147 and gearbox # LC379161 compatible with your older Kwikee 28 series steps, you will actually need pigtail # LC369243 as well as a new control box # LC379146. I confirmed this with my contact at Lippert. He also stated that all these parts are included in their complete Motor Upgrade kit # LC379769, but since you had already purchased the motor and gearbox, you just need the correct pigtail and control box, and you'll be all set!

  • Upgrade Kit for Single Step Kwikee Electric Coach Step for 1996 Coachmen Mirada
    Small individual parts for an older Kwikee step motor like the one on your 1996 Coachmen are no longer available. For a Series 28 electric single step on a 1996 Coachman you'll need to upgrade the unit to current parts, according to my contact at Lippert. If your step linkage is curved use kit Conversion/Upgrade Kit # LC379145. If the step linkage is straight then use kit # LC379769. Please compare the photos of these items to your unit to determine the correct upgrade kit.

  • Replacement Motor Kit for Lippert Kwikee 39 Series Step Assembly
    I spoke with my contact regarding your Kwikee 39 Series (model 909506000) step assembly. He stated that the Motor Conversion/Upgrade Kit # LC379145 you referenced is actually not compatible with your particular Series 39 assembly. You will instead need to use the Lippert Replacement Kit # LC379769. This kit will work perfectly with your steps and includes the IMGL (integrated motor/gearbox/linkage) and the 9510 Control Unit.

  • Motor Not Shutting Off on Lippert Kwikee Series 28 Electric RV Step
    I spoke with my contact at Lippert regarding your Kwikee 28 Series Single Electric Step # LC3747452. He stated that the most likely cause for the motor not to shut off on your unit is a faulty gear. The damaged part is simply not able to offer any resistance to shut the motor off. For a Replacement Repair Kit, you will want to use part # LC379769. This is designed for the Series 28 Electric Step and includes the integrated motor, gearbox, linkage and control unit.

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Motor for RV Steps
    There's a few ways to do it. If you can get the number off of the motor on the step that can help identify what it is. If you can determine what series step it is that helps too. Pictures of the motor and step will help a lot. There are several styles of steps and some have different generations so the key is determining what step you have, what version of it you have and then selecting the replacement motor based on that. So the step you referenced is the Lippert Kwikee 28 Series part...
