I received the electric step motor upgrade kit sooner than expected, and the kit was complete, good quality, and included detailed installation instructions and a new owner's manual. I compared the gear lash on the old unit to the new one, and was convinced that failed internal gears was the reason for the step motor and transmission failure in the original unit. The new unit is much tighter, with no "slop" in the gear train. I haven't installed the kit yet, but am sure it will work just fine. Good product and good service as usual from Etrailer.


Comments
I had the new step motor and transmission installed for about a year now and it has been working perfectly. It was a long road to perfection, since the previous RV owner had installed the wrong motor and transmission assembly. It took quite a bit of research to figure out that problem and identify what should be the proper part that should be installed. Im convinced the failure of the old motortransmission assembly was due to the wrong unit being installed. Now that the right assembly is in place, all works good. I also machined new, slightly larger bushings to take up wear between the steps and the rails they extend out on. No more clunking or slop in the stairs now!

  • Replacement Linkage for Kwikee 26 Series Single Step
    I spoke with Lippert about the Kwikee 26 Series Steps and they informed me that your best option is the Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee 26 Series Electric RV Steps part # LC379801 which replaces the motor, linkage, and control module. If the steps are original to the coach then the linkage kit is obsolete unfortunately which is why you need the update kit.

  • Solution for Kwikee RV Step 151320 with Broken Pin
    We've checked with the manufacturer of the electric step 151320 that you mentioned before and since the step is no longer made the replacement parts are not available. There wouldn't be an easy way to source the pin you are looking for. Therefore, your only and best option would be a full replacement which the most similar option is the Lippert Kwikee 32 Series Electric Step part # LC372261. These steps come with the motor, control unit, and switch kit.
