Note: This step assembly includes the steps, motor, and switch kit only. The steps will operate manually through the switch kit.


If you want the complete step assembly that allows the steps to automatically extend and retract with the RV door, you will need a control unit. The switch kit included with this assembly will still work, but if you want to be able to override the automatic retraction, so the steps stay out whether the door is open or closed, you will need a different switch kit. The complete assembly with steps, motor, control unit, and switch kit is available under part number LC3723383.


The included 4-way plug fits into the existing wiring harness on your RV. Most vehicles should having this wiring already set up. In the event that your RV is missing the wiring, a 4-way pigtail is included to help you hardwire the unit to your RV.


Safety Features

The Kwikee steps include several safety features in an effort to prevent injury to you or your passengers and damage to the RV steps. If an obstruction is detected while extending, the steps will halt and retract back into the stowed position. The steps will also retract when you turn on the vehicles ignition, even if the automatic retraction override has been activated, in case you forget to stow them before driving away.


Will Kwikee Electric Steps Work for You?

Electric steps are typically installed on RVs and some travel trailers. The electric steps from Kwikee install and fold up underneath the camper for simple storage. To ensure you choose the correct size for your application, there are a few measurements you will need to take.


Kwikee In and Out

The Kwikee electric steps attach to the underside of the camper chassis, directly beneath the doorway. To decide which size you'll need, locate the space available underneath your camper that lines up with the doorframe, and measure the width and depth. You will need a mounting space that is at least 25-1/2" wide and 11-5/8" deep.


If it turns out you have more or less space beneath your doorway, there are other step assemblies available with bracket sizes ranging from 24-3/4" wide to 37-1/4" wide. A full list of the available steps is below.


Outriggers for RV Steps

Outriggers - metal brackets that act as an extension (LC301704 - sold separately) - may be needed for installation depending on the model of your original stairs. These provide extra length if the old steps are longer or wider than the new.


Once you know where the mounting bracket will go and what size mounting bracket you need, that spot will be used as the "mounting point" to determine how many steps you will need.


How Many Steps Do You Need?

Kwikee Entry Height

To decide on how many steps you'll need, measure from the mounting point to the ground. This is called the entry height. The entry height should roughly match the height of the steps when they're fully extended, plus 6" to 8" to account for the drop from the bottom step to the ground. This measurement will also tell you how many steps you need.


The chart below displays mounting bracket widths in the first column and entry height measurements in the second column. The third column shows the corresponding part numbers. Use the mounting bracket width and entry height measurements you took to determine which part number will fit your RV. Choose the bracket size that is closest to your measurements without going over.

Video Transcript for FAQ Trailer Step Measuring

Hey guys, this is Jake here with etrailer. Today, we're gonna go over some details and the measurements that you're gonna need to take if you're wanting to replace your fifth wheel or your travel trailer steps. If you're looking to replace your motor home or your RV steps, we're gonna have a separate video made just for that. Now, a couple of reasons why you might want to replace your steps. One of the biggest reasons is because people don't like these pull out steps because they're uncomfortable and makes for a not pleasant experience on the inside of the camper if they're folded out because they hover above the ground. When somebody steps on 'em, it rocks the whole camper.

So that might be a reason why you wanna upgrade from the pullout style steps to the fold out style which will fold up into the door of your camper. The nice part about the fold out is that they're going to be rested on the ground, so all the weight from the person walking into the camper is gonna be pushing on the ground and not pulling on the side of the camper. With that being said, a lot of people like this style because it's not gonna take up space on the inside of your door. So regardless of which kind you would like to go with, there's gonna be different measurements for each. There's gonna be a measurement for the pullout style if you wanna replace just the steps you have outside already.

And then there's gonna be different measurements for the fold up style, to be able to measure, you know, you're gonna have to measure from the ground to the inside and then side to side in the door. So, it's gonna be different because they're gonna be located in a different spot. Now, here we have a different set of pull down camper steps. The reason why I switched from my camper to these is because my camper, the bracket's actually welded in. If that's the case, you're just gonna have to cut it out.

But the reason we're showing you here is because these are bolted on and I'll be able to give you the proper measurements to replace 'em. So, first measurement you need to take is from this bracket, the bracket that's actually attached to your camper, not the step bracket, from the inside to the inside of these two brackets, which for us here is gonna be 27.5. And then what you need to do is you need to measure the depth of this bracket. So from this outer edge here to the trailer frame. Good for that.

We get about 13 and 3/8. And then the last measurement is from the ground. Now you wanna make sure you're on level ground and your camper is level from the ground to this bolt right here on the outside. So that. we're getting about 26 and 1/4. Now, if you're looking to upgrade to a set of fold-down steps that actually store inside of your camper, the two measurements that you need to take is from inside flange to inside flange, not the inside of the actual door frame, because it's gonna need to fit in between these flanges. So for us measure right up against there and we get about 24.5. You can see there. The other measurement we need to take is from the ground, again, being on level ground from the ground to the top inside of the threshold itself. So for us, it's going to be about 35. And the last thing that you need to do is you need to match up the measurements that you've taken, whether you're replacing your steps that came on your camper or you're replacing them and upgrading to the fold up type. You just need to match up those measurements to the measurements on our product page for the steps that you're looking for. Well, guys, hopefully this information was helpful in helping you to find the right information and the right measurements you need to replace your camper steps. If you have any questions, please leave 'em in comments below and we'll see you next time..

Replacement Step, Motor, and Switch for Kwikee RV Electric Steps - 38 Series - 24" Wide - LC372338

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (29 Customer Reviews)

We ordered a new retractable step for our motor home. My husband followed the instructions and installed it with no problems. It has been a year and it continues to work well.

Replaced aging step that was getting stuck and struggling even after clean and lube. This assembly did the job, though the bolt holes did not line up all that well with the prior model so had to get a little creative. Not bad enough to knock a star though. Solid and does what I need it to.



by:

After a year it severely rusted and I had to repaint it



by:

I cant thank you enough for your help in getting me a replacement step for my 25 year old motorhome. It was easy to install and all wiring matched my old wire harness and it bolted right up and works great. Thank You again.



by:

All of the pieces did not come in the initial box but once I called you and then received all of the remaining pieces, it was easy to install. Great customer service. Thank you.



by:

Here are my points:

1. Information
on the right fit before I placed the order was accurate and
appreciated.
2. The steps arrived very quickly.
3. The steps had some nicks in the finish that were not from shipping. I'll
touch them up rather than send the steps back.
4. There were no instructions included from the company in the box. I went
online to get them
5. The additional mounting kit hardware wasn't required as your information
stated. The mounting bolts were welded in place by the coach manufacturer. I
didn't learn this until I removed the old steps.

The steps are installed and working, but the action is not as smooth as I
had hoped. There's no reason to believe that there is an issue - they will
likely smooth out after I use them for a season.



by:

I know in past reviews people have said written installation instructions would be greatly appreciated especially for rv owners looking to replace or install new on their rvs. I installed the step and am happy with the install. It seems to be performing as expected. Please consider putting written installation with the steps.

  • Difference Between Kwikee 38 Series Electric Steps
    I can absolutely tell you the difference between the two options. The Kwikee 38 Series Electric Step # LC3723383 comes with a control module, which means it will automatically extend. The Kwikee 38 Series Electric Step # LC372338 does not come with this control module, which means they do not automatically extend. So to make things as easy as possible I highly recommend going with the Kwikee 38 Series Electric Step # LC3723383 which has the control module because of how convenient they are.
