Very good customer service, and received my order on time.
The job and the finished result turned out perfect, the steps work like brand new !! Thanks for the help etrailer !!



by:

This upgrade kit had enough torque to completely lift the stairs on my 2004 Bigfoot 3000MH24SL - the other upgrade kit, LC29VR, did not. It works great now. The only difference is the old steps “off” switch, to keep the stairs extended with opening and close the door, was an open circuit for “off” - new controls are an open circuit for “on”. I just reversed and relabeled the switch in the RV so it works as original.

Step motor still working great after a year - I expect it to last a long time.



by:

I installed this kit on a customers RV and he happy it works great. I have not heard from him for any warranty or complaint. I will use this company when needed.



by:

This product was a described and fixed our issue on motor home.



by:

Everything you need to get your steps working again is included with this kit. New hardware, wiring harnesses and adapter is in the box and super easy to install. I had my steps working again in a matter of minutes and one year later no issues at all!



by:

Simple swap!
Almost a plug and play
item except for having to connect the new plug end via wire connectors.
You do have to switch the wires on the magnetic door sensor too.
Works better than the original!

Works as good as the day I installed it.



by:

Been lated up, it has prevented me from installing the upgrade.
Now I have time and can install it and give a fair review.

The RV step drive was a replacement for a 20+ unit that had failed. It fit perfectly. It has been working great.

The RV step was a replacement for the unit that had failed. It fit perfectly, and is working great.

Still working great



by:

The kit had everything you needed. The installation was easy to do. Thanks for your tip in how to maintain an Rv.



by:

Needed the motor and controller to get my old RV steps working again. The kit was easy to use by removing the old parts and replacing with the new parts in less than 30 minutes. Totally happy with the results, working steps at less cost than replacing the full step package. Etrailer has been my “go to” for this and a Receiver package in the past. Their videos helped in determining the “do it yourself” level of effort and provided confidence in getting the installations done easily and correctly. Thanks!

A year later and still extremely happy with all etrailer products I’ve bought, installed and used. The step motor controller package has operated like new. As I mentioned last year, etrailer Is definitely my “go to” company for best products, price and help via “DIY” videos.



by:

WOW! What great products and service from etrailer!
The entry step controller on our coach failed the week before our first planned trip of the year. I checked with many rv dealers in our area for the parts.
Best delivery from the dealers was two and a half weeks out. I then checked etrailer and was able to get the parts delivered in two DAYS! The price was excellent, the parts were correct, the delivery was great!
Thanks again to all at etrailer!



by:

Good product, extremely fast shipping!!



by:

Kit was complete and arrived on time as promised.

After a year the product has been reliable and fault free.



by:

VERY EASY install, I lengthened the mag door switch leads to clean up the wiring, making future maint. easier. Operational checks as advertised. Wiring diagrams and tech data also VERY helpfull. Quiet, Smooth operation. Had been experiencing intermittent operation and occasional gear box lockup with our unit.



by:

Good videos, easy to install and works great!

Greg

8/13/2023

It has been great. No problems at all.



by:

The parts arrived as expected. The only recommendation is to improve the packaging. The box was not large enough to accommodate packaging materials. Therefore the box was punctured in several places by the product. Thankfully no serious damage was done.



by:

More stuff than I needed to switch over but that is not a problem.
Step works great now!

Edward

Works like a charm. Installed easily and the step has never malfunctioned since.



by:

The kwikee steps, step parts and upgrade kits are exactly as described. They will fix you RV steps immediately and if need be it would be our pleasure to install you kwikee step parts of you need assistance.



by:

After talking to ETrailer they recommended the exact upgrade kit I needed for my older 2002 Monaco Windsor. It wasn't difficult to install and I'm very happy with the Kwikee upgrade kit. I was really impressed, because ETrailer's price were cheaper than Kwikee's. In fact, the people at Kwikee recommended I order it from ETrailer.

Just fine.



by:

I was very pleased that the replacement part physically fit perfect. Wiring it in was easy because of directions.



by:

Excellent product!



by:

Motor & controller install in my 1998 Monaco Dynasty went fairly fast.
However, whomever replaced it previously hid the step "lock" switch fuse in the hollow below the passenger's drink holder. It took several hours to discover why the step didn't lock extended. After finding the hidden blow fuse, it all works perfectly!

  • Correct Upgrade Kit for a Kwikee Series 32 Step
    I do have an option for you but I called Lippert and they did not have any reference to a Coach Model 32 Step. It sounds like you may have the Kwikee Series 32 Step and if that is the case then the correct Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Conversion/Upgrade Kit for you is indeed part # LC379145. This upgrade kit will be a direct bolt on fit so long as you have the Kwikee Series 32 Step. If you can send me a few photos of your steps or can find any part numbers I would be happy to try...

  • Replacement For REP 851 Series 32 Step Motor on 1988 Holiday Rambler
    If your step motor marked "REP 851" and the Part Number sticker says "32 Series Step," the replacement step motor kit you need is the Kwikee # LC379145 Motor Upgrade Kit. You can further confirm that you have a Series 32 step kit by looking at the part number sticker. It will say somethign like "Part # 903209025" and in this example the third and fourth digits are 32 indicating that this is a series 32 Step. I have included a link to this product page and to a video review

  • Replacement for Motor and Linkage for 1996 Kwikee Series 32 Steps
    Since your steps were built before 1999, what you will need to do is upgrade your motor, gear box and linkage; individual replacement parts will unfortunately not work. So what you are going to need is the Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee Electric RV Steps # LC379145. This includes a switch kit and integrated motor, gear box, and "A" linkage which will get your steps working again. I've added a link to a video review for you as well.

  • Replacement Gear Box Recommendation for Kwikee 32 Step Motor
    Sounds like you might be looking for the part # LC379145 as this is the other very common gear box needed for use with a Kwikee 32 step like what you have.

  • Troubleshooting Door Isolation Switch Not Functioning On RV Power Steps
    I'd check the wiring of the switch at the switch itself as well as back where it attaches to the step. It sounds like either the wiring of the switch is bad or the switch itself is bad. Since it's much more likely to be the wiring that would be what I would suspect. To test the switch you can bypass it by cutting the wires that run to the switch and having the two wires contact each other.

  • Kwikee 32 Series Upgrade Kit for Pre-IMGL Steps on 2003 Monaco Diplomat
    Yes, the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Conversion/Upgrade Kit part # LC379145 would have everything that you need to get your steps going again assuming the gearbox/arm were the damaged components and not the actual step assembly. I spoke to my contact at Lippert about your door switch and manual shutoff and they said that you would want to use the door switch included with this kit, not the one you have now. The manual shutoff switch will no longer be used with the upgrade kit....

  • Replacement Motor Upgrade Kit for Kwikee 36 Series RV Steps
    I couldn't say for certain without knowing exactly which step you have. The # LC379145 upgrade kit is compatible with Kwikee series 36 steps that use the "A" linkage. The linkage coming off the gear box will have an "A" stamped on it. If you could reply with a photo showing the labels on your controller and the motor, I can confirm for certain which upgrade kit you need.

  • RV Steps Only Come Out With Engine On
    I would first check for a switch just inside the door of your coach. In most cases there is a switch on the step system to shut it down so it doesn't move in and out( labeled Entry Step). There will be an override there that allows it to operate when the vehicle is started so if you didn't pull them back in they will retract automatically. This can also deploy the steps when the door is opened overriding the switch. Another cause can be that the main 12V supply switch is turned off...

  • Replacement Motor for an Older Kwikee Series 32
    As the original motors are no longer produced, all the ones we carry will be the upgraded versions. These will look different from the original motors as in 2004 they changed to Integrated Motor Gear Box Linkage, or IMGL. With that being said, the Kwikee Motor Upgrade Kit # LC379145 is the correct kit for you.
