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.

Worked good excellent replacement



by:

Love etrailer! You take the guess work out of ordering some very complex equipment. Christian is great!



by:

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.

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.

Good communication and service. Switch a perfect replacement

  • Troubleshooting Installation of Lippert Electric Step Switch
    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 Steps That Won't Stay Open When The RV Door Is Closed
    I spoke with a Lippert Tech and the most likely cause is the switch but there is also a possibility that the control module is the issue. The wire and/or the magnets of the switch could be worn out enough to cause intermittent function like you've been experiencing. Even though the light is still working I recommend replacing the switch # LC301694 first as it's a quarter of the price of the module # LC301702. If that does not solve the issue then it is the control module causing the malfunction.

  • 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.

  • Why Are My Kwikee 32 Series Steps Working In Reverse?
    This is a fairly common occurrence for motorhomes that are wired to work with a normally open circuit and the steps being used are designed to work with a closed circuit. To fix this issue, you'd just need to swap out your door magnet with the Replacement Door Switch for Lippert Electric Coach Step # LC301694. It also wouldn't hurt to go over your wiring and ensure everything is appropriately connected. Make sure the green is grounded to the chassis, the white is connected to the power...

  • Troubleshooting New Lippert RV Step Switch that Works Door Opposite
    I am not totally sure why but Lippert has two different types of magnetic door switches that work opposite of each other. One switch setup completes a circuit when they are connected magnetically and the other setup opens a circuit when they are connected magnetically. So what that ends up doing if you order the wrong set is the steps work opposite of the way you'd like them to. I am not sure which switch you ordered but if you have the # LC301694 now you'd instead need the # LC369299...

  • Replacement Step Controller and Magnet Sensor For SCS/Fridget Controller
    The Replacement Control Module for Lippert Electric Coach Step # LC301702 is the correct control module to replace your SCS/Fridget controller. Generally it is not required to replace the magnetic sensors when replacing the controller. But the Replacement Door Switch for Lippert Electric Coach Step # LC301694 is compatible with the replacement control module.

  • Solution for Replacement RV Door Magnet Switch Where Door Operates Steps Backwards
    I was able to determine that the switch you have now is the # LC369299 which is normally an open circuit so for the opposite configuration to allow your step to operate like it needs to you'd want the # LC301694.

  • Replacement Normally Open Door Magnet Switch for SCS/Coach Steps
    The correct replacement door magnet for a set of Coach Steps is the Replacement Door Switch for Lippert Electric Coach Step part # LC301694 which is a normally open switch.

  • Troubleshooting A Coach Step That Only Works Periodically
    I spoke with Lippert and they at first weren't getting anything off of the 733-0001 number but just got back to me stating that the Replacement Door Switch for Lippert Electric Coach Step # LC301694 would be the correct door magnet for your Coach Step. That being said, if the light comes on every time even when it doesn't want to extend then the issue is most likely with the motor itself and not actually the door magnet. If you could send me a picture of the tag on the mounting bracket...

  • Replacement Kwikee Step Switch with Normally Closed Circuit
    The original steps all came with the open switch originally so I would assume that it's the original configuration and that nothing has been previously replaced. If you just want to swap out the magnets, the opposite magnets that are normally closed are available with the Replacement Door Switch for Lippert Electric Coach Step # LC301694. This would reverse the functioning of the steps as they currently work.

  • 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. If you have the coach steps, you want the Replacement Door Switch for Lippert Electric Coach Step # LC301694. If you have the Kwikee steps, you want # LC369299.

  • 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....
