Note: This step assembly includes the steps, motor, and control unit only. The steps will operate automatically, extending when the RV door opens and retracting when the door closes.


If you want the complete step assembly that also allows you to override the automatic retraction so the steps stay out whether the door is open or closed, you will need a switch kit (sold separately).


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 30-3/8" wide and 22-7/8" 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.

This stair unit was a replacement for the original stair on our 2014 Entegra Cornerstone. I am happy to say it was a direct replacement and a great upgrade. Even the wiring was a simple connector that matched the existing and operation is the same.

My only issue was the fiberglass opening on our coach was about an eighth of an inch too narrow and it required a little trimming. Super happy with the unit and hopefully it serves us well into the future.

After one year of use, these steps continue to work great and I couldn’t be happier with them. Looking forward to them functioning for years to come. I would recommend them to anybody considering changing out the steps.

  • Could Kwikee 47 Series Step Fit 1997 Foretravel U270
    Hey Edward, I would say probably but since we don't have a way to know what was original equipment on your motorhome it's hard to say. The Kwikee 47 Series part # LC427247 is pretty universal though so I would feel pretty safe saying it would work.

  • Picking Out Powered Double Step for 2013 Tiffin Motorhome
    I found some pictures online of the steps your Tiffin 2013 Red came with and they appear to be a standard double pull out style step. If you wanted an electric version the Kwikee 47 Series Electric RV Steps # LC427247 would be a really great choice. These were designed to replace standard like what you have so at worst there might be some fabrication. This has a bolt pattern of 29" x 22" whereas the # LC372779 is 29" x 18. You should compare the measurements to what your RV has to determine...

  • Determining The Correct Replacement For SCS/Frigette Coach Steps
    The 733 of your part number comes back to a much older step but unfortunately the -0074 isn't showing up so we'll need to measure to find a compatible replacement. You'll need to measure the width of the mounting bracket for the steps and the height from the ground up to the mounting bracket. For example, the # LC427247 you were looking at has a 30-3/8" bracket width and fits an entry height of 17-1/4" - 19-1/4". Once we have these measurements we can find a compatible replacement.
