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 LC3747453.


The included 4-way plug fits into the existing wiring harness on your RV. Most vehicles should have 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 24-3/4" wide and 8-5/8" 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.

Upon opening the box, I bench tested the 28 series steps and they worked perfectly. Once the older steps were removed, the installation went easily. I used a floor jack to lift and hold the 28 series steps in place thus allowing me to Mount them alone.

Review from a similar Kwikee 28 Series in RV and Camper Steps


The step is a replacement for the old one that was on the motor home The bolt holes to mount it were an exact match the wire diagram was a little different than the old unit The unit works great and was a lesser price that some others I have looked at

Review from a similar Kwikee 28 Series in RV and Camper Steps


What do I think !! Ha Ha.. It is so nice and refreshing to order a part I need, have it arrive as scheduled, undamaged, and have it fit right on as stated on the web site. Every screw bolt and nut were the same. Even the threaded hole. I did grind off a wee bit of the powder coat for a ground wire. Replacement steps for my electric Kwikee setup. My first purchase here and I will be trying again. I am beyond very satisfied. Thank You

Review from a similar Kwikee 28 Series in RV and Camper Steps


The steps arrived as expected. They are identical with the exception of the wire for the outdoor light. I have taken the old ones off but not put the new ones on. The person I spoke with was very helpful with the steps. Installation begins in the morning. I am only giving 4 stars due to the lack of instructions. I am having to find the links online. It could have made suggestions for making the project easier or something even though it appears to be quite simple.

Good price... delivered promptly...what more can one ask for. Kwikee steps well not so happy with them...I’m on my 3rd one in 3 years... although one was impacted by a large piece of asphalt on the road. Seal the wires going into controller will prevent moisture entering it... one failed due to that.

Review from a similar Kwikee 28 Series in RV and Camper Steps


Went in smoothly as an exact replacement for the old step that I damaged by my own negligence which is the only reason it failed. Bought only the step and swapped in the old motor which was not damaged. 5 Stars because it works as expected. Make sure the electrical connections a well sealed with shrink tube because they are vulnerable to corrosion.

Review from a similar Kwikee 28 Series in RV and Camper Steps


Ordered the kwikee 28 electric step for my class A Winnebago. Bent old steps up in construction zone in northern Colorado The price was reasonable and the step arrived as scheduled. Was identical to old step and bolted right up. Tried to use the original door switch but step retreated when door was opened. Wired up the new door switch which was included...everything worked great. Step is still working great after 1 year of service with numerous trips---long and short. Retired and use the rv weekly. Very pleased with product and etrailer.

Review from a similar Kwikee 28 Series in RV and Camper Steps


Everything that had to do with my purchase (customer support, delivery, product quality) was perfect. The only reason it did not get five stars is because there is no disclaimer that the motor in the steps have had their polarity reversed. in other words the steps will close when the door is opened, and open when the door is closed. There is a magnetic switch that also needs to be replaced, the new stitches are considered a Normally Open switch, some model motorhomes have Normally Closed switches installed at the factory just inside your screen door. They are simply a magnet that tells the control module wether the door is open or closed. Check before you order, etrailer carry them and are easy to install, just stinks having to pay shipping twice.

New electric steps arrived faster than anticipated. Perfect fit and as soon as I plugged in power cord, steps extended and retracted first time. Existing door switch worked too and all I had to do was zip tie wires and we were all set to go.

Ordered my Kwikee 28 Series Electric Step on line. Later that day I received notice they had processed my order and that it would be shipped and received in 5 days. Received it on the date they had listed and I installed it on our motorhome with the help of a friend.

  • Replacement Motor for Kwikee 28 Series Step Made In 1988
    The issue you are having with your Kwikee 28 Series Step is a bad motor. I do have an option for you but the cutoff date for replacement parts on Kwikee Steps is 1999. Therefore, they do not make a replacement motor that will work with your Kwikee Step due to its age. The only option you have is a full replacement, the Kwikee 28 Series Electric Step part # LC3747451. If you want to switch to a more cost effective manual pull-out step you can use the Lippert Manual Pull-Out Step part...

    In comparing Kwikee Lippert # LC3474453 VS # LC3747451 electric steps (28 Series), I find that the 451 is a basic electric step that goes in or out based on an in-cab switch only. The 453 model additionally includes a control unit, and magnetic door switches that automate extending and retracting the steps. As you mentioned, the 453 has a step light as well.

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Motor for RV Steps
    There's a few ways to do it. If you can get the number off of the motor on the step that can help identify what it is. If you can determine what series step it is that helps too. Pictures of the motor and step will help a lot. There are several styles of steps and some have different generations so the key is determining what step you have, what version of it you have and then selecting the replacement motor based on that. So the step you referenced is the Lippert Kwikee 28 Series part...

    I have a really great option for adding a step to allow for easier access into your 2005 GMC Envoy, however I don't think the Kwikee Electric RV Step # LC3747451 that you referenced is going to work well. It's going to require an awful lot of modification to the Envoy, with the addition of having to wire it up to the battery for power.
