Video Transcript for Lippert Components RV and Camper Steps LC379160 Review

Today, we're gonna take a look at the replacement gear box and linkage for the Lippert components 2006 to current Kwikee electric steps. Now, this will replace the gear box and the curved A-linkage for Lippert components Kwikee electric steps, and you can tell if you have the A-linkage on your steps because there will be an A that's embossed on the linkage arm. This part here is designed to fit the 2006 to current Kwikee 22, 23, 27, 28A, 30, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 38, and 40 series steps. So it does fit a wide range of the Kwikee steps. Does come with the two washers to help you install it, but that should do it for the review on the replacement gearbox and A-linkage for the Lippert components 2006 to current Kwikee electric steps.

Comments

This particular gearbox/linkage is a replacement for an A Linkage manufactured after 2005. If your steps are older than that, Lippert makes a conversion/upgrade kit, part # LC379145
Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee Electric RV Steps
$279.00
that will replace your existing motor and gearbox/linkage.

Gear box kit was exactly wanted in needed and ordered. Arrived as promised and in goods condition. It should have had been over packed and/or more packing inside the box to better protect it. It was very loose in the box could have easily been damaged in shipping. 573873

by:

Excellent customer service and support. Very friendly and helpful. The only problem that I had with my item is the bolt sizes weren't the same. My original bolts from my motor were too small for the hole size of the new gear box. So I had to go 3 new larger boots but worse yet, I had to drill out the 3 holes on my original motor & cover to fit the larger bolts. 568480

The website was accurate and easy to use. Got the parts in one day. Perfect! Thanks E Trailer! 558550



- LC379160
by:

Perfect fit, easy to install in 15 minutes. The only thing I can think that would make it better is if it came with new mounting bolts. Only because I broke one by over tightening it as always 554502

Greatly appreciated the communication from Etrailer updating the shipment progress. The price was the best I could find on the internet and the product was exactly what I needed! I will continue doing business with etrailer! 541297

The product worked perfect. I had a set of kwikee steep on my class a campers they would not retract all the way and you could hear it skipping a broken tooth on the gear in the gear box that operated the stairs which is was driven by a motor. I had called a couple suppliers for a new gear box and they both told me I needed to order the a complete kit for that series stairs that means changing the door sensor the motor rewiring etc well 300 bucks and a lot more labor. Called Megham at e-trailer who was great she did some research found me a gearbox that would work about 2 hours of my time. E-trailer never fails to deliver for me and Meghsn is great and knows what she is doing. After listening to the other 2 places I wasn't sure e-trailers solutions was going to work how could something work save me over 200 bucks and 2 hours of my time but Meghan and e-trailer came though.. now I,m thinking why did I even call the other places. Thanks etrailer. 516191

Product performed as it was supposed to. Challenge getting hooked up to the steps but that was on me. Everything arrived earlier than expected even though part of the order was on backorder. 2nd time I ordered from etrailer.com. and so far I have had very good results. Will order from them again if needed. 504726

I have a series 32 step from a 1999 coach. I thought I could use my old motor assembly on the gear/ linkage but it was not compatible with my motor. So, I returned it and ended up purchasing the complete conversion/ upgrade kit, Item # LC379145. 464796

  • Replacement Motor and Gear Box for Lippert 366043 Motor on Kwikee Steps
  • I spoke with my contact at Lippert regarding the 366043 model motor/gear box assembly for your Kwikee Steps. He stated that the correct replacement motor is the Lippert Kwikee Motor # LC379147 and for the gear box you will use # LC379160. These will be exact replacements on your step assembly. Pricing information for both parts will be listed on the product pages.

  • Kwikee 32 Series Step Replacement Motor Recommendation Pre-IMGL Part # 5973820
  • I spoke with my contact at Lippert regarding your existing motor/gearbox model 5973820. He stated that the correct replacement motor is the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Replacement Kit # LC379608. This is a direct replacement for the motor that originally came with your assembly and will work perfectly with the existing control unit. For the gearbox you'd then want the part # LC379160 that you mentioned as well.

  • Replacement Gear and Linkage for Lippert Electric Steps
  • It sounds like you are looking for the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Gear/Linkage with A (1101425) # LC379160 or just the linkage # LC379649. If you are looking for linkage B we have the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Gear/Linkage with B (1101426) # LC379161 or linkage only # LC379648. If you are looking for linkage C we have Lippert Components Kwikee Step Gear/Linkage with C (FOR 26 SERIES STEPS) (1101427) # LC379162 or just the linkage # LC379647.

  • Troubleshooting Kwikee Step on 2013 Jayco Greyhawk that Clicks
  • Sounds like the motor is on it's way out if it's clicking. Similar to how a car starter will start clicking when it has failed and draws too much amperage to operate. Since the trailer is newer (2013 Jayco Greyhawk) you would most likely need the newer style of Kwikee motor part # LC379147 which fits Kwikee steps manufactured after 2005.

  • Replacement Gear/Linkage for Kwikee Step on 2005 RV
  • If the motor replacement for your Kwikee step is the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Replacement Kit For Pre-IMGL # LC379608 or the Lippert Components Kwikee Motor and Screws for New IMGL Step # LC379147, then the gear/linkage you would want is # LC379160. The linkage arm will have the letter embossed on it.

  • Gearbox Recommendation for Kwikee Step on 2006 Winnebago View
  • You are correct and the linkage does need to be replaced. For that you would want the part # LC379160 which matches what you have. My contact at Lippert technical confirmed that two washers, not four, are supplied with the Kwikee Step Gear/Linkage with A, part # LC379160. Typically only two of the four mounting holes for this part will require the shim washers. The shims will go between the gear box and the step. You'll see them as you take off the old gear box.

  • Replacement Gearbox and Linkage Assembly for Kwikee Step on 2004 Winnebago Brave Motorhome
  • Powered RV steps that still operate but that make bad mechanical noises may not need a new motor, but you're right that it is likely you'll need a new gearbox and/or linkage. There are two possible kits for your step unit. Part # LC379161 is the B style linkage for the Kwikee Step Series 28, 31, 37 and 39. This is Kwikee part number 1101426.

  • Replacement Gear Box for Kwikee 32 Series Electric Step Assembly
  • I spoke with my contact at Lippert regarding your Kwikee Step 32 Series Assembly. She said that as long as the steps were put on your camper after 2006, the Replacement Gear Box and Linkage # LC379160 that you referenced is indeed the correct replacement. She said based on the motor number you provided it is most likely a post-2006 unit, but you will still want to verify this. If you happen to have an older model then the entire step assembly will need to be replaced as replacement...

  • Replacement Motor for Lippert Components Kwikee Step
  • I reached out to my contact at Lippert Components and they confirmed that the old motor and the new gearbox are not compatible. With the step frame cracked and the gearbox cracked your best option would be to replace the complete steps.
