Video Transcript for Lippert Electric Coach Step Replacement Door Switch Installation

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to be taking a look at the replacement door switch from Lippert Electric Coach Steps, part number LC301694.Now whether your switch is starting to go out or completely broke, our door switch is going to allow our stairs to come out and retract when we close the door automatically. Then, we won't have to worry about tripping or stepping up too far when we're getting in or out of our RV. One side of our switch is going to mount right here against the door. Then, the other side, we mounted ours right at the bottom of our screen door. That way whenever the screen door closes, the two sensors will meet and it'll cause the stairs to retract.Now, our switch is going to replace the door switch that came standard on the single, double or triple electric Lippert Coach Steps, or your Stromba Colson 00:00:50 sliding steps. If you're tired of the stairs not extending out or not retracting back in when you close or open the door, our door switch is going to be a great solution to get your motorized stairs working again.To begin our installation, we're going to have to make sure that our steps are working properly and that the problem is our switch.

Right now, I'm going to go ahead and switch the steps on. As you can see, the steps do come out. We can go ahead and close the door, and we can see that they're not retracting. We can tell that the motor is working perfectly fine, but the sensor or the switch right here on the door is not.The first step of our installation is going to be removing the old switch. Now, the one that's attached to the inside of the doorframe here, this one was broken off.

The wires are still attached, but the glue had let go a long time ago. To make it a little bit easier on myself, I'm going to cut my wires right here. If we follow the wires down, it'll lead to the floor and they're going to come out right here. I can go ahead and pull my wires out. One of them is going to be attached to the frame here with a self-tapping screw for our ground.

The other one's going to be connected into our harness that connects to the motor for our steps.We can take our new switch. We're going to find the end of the wires, and we're going to feed them down through the same hole that we got the other ones out. Once the wires come through, we're going to pull the excess out and get about how much we need for our switch. Now where my old wire went into my connector here, I'm going to go ahead and cut that wire back just right behind the connector. I'm going to strip it back.Now, on the end of the wire, I'm going to take a heat shrink butt connector inaudible 00:02:43 staying on the outside of the vehicle at all times.

I'm going to crimp it into place. Now, if you need some of these, you can pick some up on our website. These are just going to help from corrosion building up and moisture getting inside the connector.Now, we're going to take the longer of the two wires from our switch. I'm going to bring it towards the butt connector, and I'm going to insert it into the end and crimp it in place. Now, as far as the original ground goes, I'm going to go ahead and get rid of that bolt and pull my wire out and start afresh.I'm going to take a ring terminal, it's not in the kit but you can pick some up on our website, couple of different sizes that we carry. I'm going to take my wire, I'm actually going to fold it a couple of times to make it a little bit thicker, so I can crimp on my ring terminal. I'm going to take a self-tapping screw. Again, these aren't provided in the kit, but I'm going to attach it to the inside of the frame right here.We can go ahead and mount half our switch now. Now, there's two different ways that we can mount it. On the back, we have some double-sided tape. Just peel the backing off, and we can apply it directly to whatever surface we want. We also have two spots where we can put a couple of screws into place. I'm going to take mine and I'm just going to use the double-sided tape for now. I'm going to put it right against the door here so that when the other door closes, the other magnet will be right here next to it.Now, the other half of our sensor is going to be going on our screen door in our application. It's going to mount the same way. We're going to have some double-sided tape on the back. We're just going to adhere it to the bottom of the door so that when I close it, it'll line up with the other magnet. Now, they do provide us with some screws in our kit, but they are just a tad bit longer than the ones we took out. I'm going to be replacing the screws with the same ones that I took out.Now, as I mentioned before, the connector I was using is a heat shrink connector. I'm going to be using a heat gun to shrink it down. Now where that hole we had, where it came out to the floor in the entryway there, I'm going to take a little bit of silicone. I'm going to fill it up. We won't have to worry about any moisture building up or water leaking in there.With all the connections made and everything tidied up, we can go ahead and test out our steps. We can close the door and see that they go back up. Now if we open the door, they're going to extend out. Looks like that switch went ahead and fixed the problem. That'll finish up our look at the replacement door switch for Lippert Electric Coach Steps, part number LC301694.

The Part arrived very quickly and was exactly what I needed. The switch is the correct one for my steps and now I can keep the steps out when the door is closed and the power switch is turned off. The switch that I replaced was for the other manufacturers steps. The two switches work opposite. Door closed, switch open. the other one is door closed, switch closed. I have heard about other people with the same issue. You have to make sure you have the right switch for you manufactures steps. Thanks for the right part that helped me fix my steps. 300773

Tried other RV door switches from other dealers that did not work. Because etrailer had the actual brand of my switch, it worked perfectly. Wish I had bought from them in the first place; would have saved me a lot of time and money. 355149

  • RV Electric Step Replacement Magnet Recommendation
  • We have two options for the magnets you may need. We have the part # LC301694 and # LC369299 with the difference being if the circuit needs to be open or closed. The # LC301694 is an open circuit that completes the circuit when the door is closed which tells the step's brain that it's time to retract the steps and the # LC369299 is a complete circuit that when opened tells the steps to retract.

  • Replacement Door Switch Magnets for Lippert Trailer or Coach Steps
  • Since you replaced the controller and it worked fine and then stopped, I assume that you have a door switch that has gone bad due to magnet failure.

Obviously the motor and the linkage are not the issue as you have them functioning with the switch. You can check the controller by reconnecting it and using the switch as...

  • Solution for Lippert CouchStep that When New Module Was Installed Steps Work in Reverse
  • Sounds like you replaced the module on your RV steps with a newer style which uses the opposite door magnet/sensor setup and is why your steps now operate in reverse. The newer style magnets you need then are the part # LC301694 which I attached an install video for. I attached a diagram that shows how the purple wire connects to the steps.

  • Troubleshooting Lippert Powered RV Steps That Extend Then Stop
  • If you have confirmed that the motor in your Lippert or Stromberg Carlson powered RV steps is good and that there are no mechanical issues with the step linkage (that could be causing the step to sometimes stop before extending completely), then the most likely causes for the issue are a bad wiring connection (that allows for intermittent contact), a problem in the control module or a bad door switch. You can try bypassing the door switch to see if that allows the steps to extend fully....

  • It sounds like you simply installed the switch, like part # LC301694, incorrectly. All you need to do is swap the wires that you have connected and it should work perfectly. I am not sure why you have a different color but that shouldn't matter especially if it is operating.

  • Troubleshooting Coach Step Not Retracting on 2005 American Eagle
  • They replaced your Kwikee step with a coach step. It really isn't an issue to do so just the assembly is different for the gear and motor than your previous step. The coach steps often have a separate switch inside the motorhome to turn off the power to your steps so they don't retract and extend when you are camping each time you use the door. If that is the case, you can flip the switch and the light and door switch should work properly. If they do not, then there may be an issue...
