Video Transcript for Lippert Components RV and Camper Steps LC301702 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Replacement Control Module for an Electric Coach Step. This replaces the control module that came standard on your single, double, or triple electric Lippert Coach Step, or Stromberg Carlson Sliding Step. This unit simply houses the circuits and electrical components necessary for the step to function properly. It's going to include the weatherproof wiring and connectors. It installs underneath the base of your step with four self-tapping screws. The screws are not included, but when you're ready to install this, you'll remove the self-tapping screws holding the ground wires on your previous module. Then you'll need to disconnect the four pin connector to the motor wiring harness, that will look just like this one.

Disconnect the two pin connector to the motor, it's going to look just like this one. Remove the self-tapping screws holding your module in place, and simply install the new module in reverse order. A few measurements to go over with you real quick and then we're going to go over a few of the wire functions. Edge to edge going this direction, it's going to give us a measurement of 5 13/16". Going this direction, just measuring the box portion, that's going to be 4 1/8". The holes are separated on center going this direction by 3 1/8", and the hole separation on center in this direction, is going to be 5.25". Really nice design.

Again, you're going to have your four pin connector, goes to the motor wiring harness. Two pin connector that goes directly to the motor and then your black wire right here, this is going to be the wire that gets connected for the step light. You're going to have two green wires, these are both ground wires. One grounds the chassis, the other one grounds to the steps. Then your purple wire, located right here, this is going to be for the step light switch.

That's going to do it for today's look at the Replacement Control Module for an Electric Coach Step. Again, this replaces the control module that came standard on your single, double, or triple electric Lippert Coach Step or Stromberg Carlson Sliding Step.

The new replacement module was perfect. Installation was a breeze and now I realize that my old control module was creating more problems that I knew about. Highly recommend this product.

No instructions with this item. I had a light connected to the old one and didn’t know if I could connect it with the new module. The wiring harness was great! Matched up exactly with my original which is 15 years old. Customer service was great-Joseph in particular. etrailer has always been helpful ,knowledgeable, and quick to deliver. Thanks again etrailer!!

the product was shipped and received at my temporary RV location very rapidly. it worked when i installed it since i was armed with some slight installation tips from product reviews. well done! i always like dealing with etrailer.com cheers. Gene from the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally...

Product is RV step controller, and was an exact replacement for old device. Fit perfectly, and works as it should. Be careful of motor plug orientation--if wrong, device opens/closes door opposite correct way. Price was good.

I have a 2005 Newmar Dutch Star and the step started acting up last year. Sometimes it would not close or open when it should. Then all of a sudden it would operate. I ordered this part. It was an exact replacement, just looked sealed better than the factory one. It had a few ground wires, 2 connectors and a black wire I connected to the step light. I did not use the purple wire I tightened everything up with a few wire ties, cleaned up all of the ground connections. And finally I added some dry lube to all the moving parts of the step and pivot points. I closed the door and it was like new. Cycled the door and few times and it worked perfectly. My step was manufactured by Coach Step Inc. Part Number 725-0022 Step Assy. If you are having step issues I highly recommend this item. Easy to install and works great!

Great Purchase. Solid customer service. One call and they quickly diagnosed my problem after I explained the issue. Gave them my part number number and they recommended this part. Self-install and I'm not a mechanic. The Control Board for the electric steps fit into the existing holes. One extra wire I didn't know what to do with, so I just didn't hook it up. Steps work. Every time.

I have a 2006 DutchStar. This product was as close to an exact replacement as you can get. The customer service from etrailer was awesome as they checked with Lippert mfg before I order just to make sure it would work and even sent me a pdf of the wiring diagram so I could figure out the install. I was on the road and staying at a KOA, shipping was fast and the box was well enough marked that there was no problem getting it when it arrived.

Very pleased with staff and service at etrailer! They were helpful in determining the proper product. Received the part very quickly and installed it. But....then realized it was not compatible with the door magnets; however, was able to get the right magnets and send out immediately. Very pleased that the problem was rectified so quickly.

Very fast delivery. Unfortunately, after ordering the step controller, I discovered that the gear was jammed. I released the jam and it works perfectly, just like it has for the last 19 years.

One year later and my steps work perfectly with the new parts from Etrailer. Highly recommend them and their staff for all your RV parts needs.

Product arrived well packaged and sealed in plastic. The unit is an original Lippert component. It was free from defects and functioned properly upon installation. The inclusion of a wiring diagram would've made installation he's here and able to proceed with confidence. It's absence however is not that limiting in that the connections are somewhat intuitive. The etrailer ordering process was easy and they shipped my unit without delay. A quality product from a quality company. Tip: when trouble shooting a motorized RV step, don't forget to check the integrity of the magnetic door switch.



- LC301702
by:

Good knowledge over the phone, part ordered and delivered in a timely matter. Hopefully my RV steps will retract all the time, not whenever it feels like it. Module should solve the problem.

Received the LC301702 control box quickly and installed. This control box resolved my inoperable step problem. I have the Double Coach step installed on my 2005 Newmar Kountry Star DP. On my installation the purple and black wires for the step light were not required. I taped and seal the ends of those wires, attached the control box ground wires one to the step and one to the frame then plugged in the two wiring harnesses as shown in the video. Bam my steps are operational again. Thanks E-trailer.

Ordered this while on the road. Great service from etrailer, Brian took order and shipped to my next location where it was waiting for me. New unit bolted and plugged right in, works perfectly. Old controller failed after 10 years exposure to wet roads covered with corrosive crud. New controller is fully potted in rubberized compound which completely seals electronic parts from the elements, rather than old style conformal coating, so new unit should be more reliable.



- LC301702
by:

The control module for the electric step on our RV stopped working because it became corroded from sprayed sand and water. The new unit is much better designed and fully insulated against a repeat of the problem. It works very well and was delivered as promised. I am pleased with the service.


Comments
Thank you for reminding me that I had purchased the Lippert Components Accessories. I am pleased to report that it has worked perfectly from the date that I installed it. The delivery was on time and the instruction information helpful. All told, I am pleased with the service and the improvement in the module. It is greatly improved.

Excellent service from etrailer. Did not receive any directions with this product but contacted your help line. FYI if switching from an older SCS/Frigette step control with 9 wires to the newer 10 wire model. Connect the black bare end wire to steplight. Purple wire with bare end does not have any application on my motorhome so just capped it off. Would definitely order again from etrailer.

The module we received worked fine & the service at etrailer was outstanding. They go the extra mile. The module was for our motor coach step.

Got the step controller for my 2007 Dutch Star. Easy installation. Everything lined up. Screw holes and wiring.

Glad to have found these people to deal with. Thank You

  • Kwiwee RV Step Not Extending or Retracting Fully
    From what you describe, the most likely culprit would either be the motor on the steps is going bad or the half-moon shaped gear is damaged. You can independently test the motor by removing it and applying 12 volt power directly to it, if it operates okay, you've ruled out the motor. Next, examine the half moon gear such as # LC369354 that the output gear from the motor actuates. If there is debris caught in the gear, or if there's teeth missing the problems you mention might occur....

    The correct part may be the solution. The Replacement Control Module for Lippert Electric Coach Step # LC301702 you asked from is not a Kwikee Step controller.

  • 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. The picture of your sensor did not make it through, with that I should be able to tell what...

  • What Type of Switch Mechanism Is Used to Open and Close RV Powered Steps
    RV steps that use the module you referenced # LC301702 use a set of magnets that when close together either open or close the circuit. This is what triggers the steps when the door opens and closes. What's interesting is some magnets work opposite of each other so if you had a door opening and closing in reverse you might just need to go to the other set of magnets.

  • How To Wire the Replacement Control Module for Lippert Electric Coach Steps LC301702
    In regards to the Replacement Control Module for Lippert Electric Coach Steps part # LC301702, the long light green wire with a ring terminal on the end will go to a ground point on the chassis. The short dark green wire with ring terminal on the end should be grounded to the step frame. Therefore, one is a ground for the chassis and the other a ground for the step frame. I have attached a wiring diagram of said control module for you as well.

  • Troubleshooting Lippert Electric Coach Steps That Won't Open When Door Opens
    I'll start this off by trying to address one of the most pertinent questions to this, it would seem. According to Lippert, the Lippert # LC301695 motor should work in the opposite direction when the polarity is reversed, so it's a little bit puzzling as to why this isn't working when you do that. With that said, it would seem that since the motor is still opening and retracting the steps (just with odd functionality) that the motor is not the likely issue. If the motor wasn't working it...

  • Does Purple Wire of Kwikee RV Steps Need to be Connected for them To Function
    The purple wire on Kwikee step modules does not need to be connected for it to function as this is an optional porch light switch circuit. Yours not being connected is most likely not the issue.

  • 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....

  • Troubleshooting Lippert Coach Step Clicking Sound When Extending or Retracting All The Way
    The clicking sound you are getting of your coach step seemingly wanting to over extend or over retract is not a motor issue but rather a control module issue. This is basically the brains of the operation and if another item wasn't working correctly you'd know in other ways because the gears would slip. I recommend replacing the Control Module with # LC301702.
