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 LC3711363 .

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 vehicle's 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 is at least 25-1/4" wide and 10" 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 page's step assembly is in bold text.

Had to replace my old ones after smacking a curb going through a driveway. These came fast and were a quick replacement. Thanks etrailer.


I recieved a bare bone unit i know its not suppose to come with the controller but it is suppose to come with a motor! All it came with is the frame and switch kit

Wow, I am so sorry to hear that! You are definitely going to need that motor. I will have our customer service team reach out to you about this right away. Thanks for letting us know!


Replacement step is like new


This step is used in a very unconventional
This application may not be what you are looking for in promoting the product.

This is replacing the identical step on my 4Runner.My wife has mobility issues and can not raise her foot to the height of the factory running boards.
Installing your step allowed me to retain my 2016, 4Runner.

Received the step this afternoon and is installed and working well tonight.


Great Step! Bolt pattern fit exactly with the one I was replacing so it took some no time to get everything bolted up. Electrical connection worked great and step operated as expected.



No issues solid product.


Was an exact replacement. No problems. Etrailer is the place for your RV needs.


Product arrived promptly!! Will highly recommend this business to fellow RV'ers.
Very pleased with the replacement steps that I ordered.


Best price on the internet. I was initially concerned delivery would not be as quick as it would if I payed more at another online retailer, but WOW, was I wrong. Got it in 2 days! etrailer is my "go to" from now on.


Just received this step yesterday, just what we needed for our RV.
Shipping was fast, just a few days.
This is the second item we have ordered from etrailer, very happy with the service.


The part arrived and fit perfectly. The shipping was fantastic as was teh true customer support. This team believes in true customer service!


The step was good. However we damaged it again because it was so low. So we had it removed and will not replace.

It is good to measure where this step will sit from the ground before purchasing because it adds an additional 7 inches to your vehicle or RV.


Delivered on time at a great price after the first delivery came damaged. Customer service was very helpful.


Easy to install


Perfect fit. After 1 year works just like new. Very satisfied.


Awesome service! Thanks Stacey A for always taking care of our needs


Received will open Monday thanks







My experience regarding this purchase has been very good. We recently purchased a used RV and found that the previous owner had cannibalized the motor and control unit from the existing step; what remained was rusted and unusable. I removed old step, cleaned up the remaining rust and painted the area where the new step would go. When I received the complete replacement assembly I could tell immediately that it was well engineered and made with quality materials. Installation was straightforward, included everything required and I was provided with information on how to get help if I needed it.
I would definitely encourage anyone in need of quality parts for their RV to give etrailer a serious look. I will continue to be a customer.


This was a replacement for the original Kailee electric step that seized up. Install was straight forward but the mounting hole pattern was slighty different than the original. Installed replacement works as well as original


About a year ago we had to replace our Kwikee Electric motorhome steps. Thanks to the people at etrailer we were able to get the correct steps and in a reasonable amount of time.
Thank you etrailer.


My old steps had been curbed twice and were beyond repair and eventually stopped working. I got to talk with Rob at e-trailer. He professionally listened to my questions and advised me on the correct set of Lippert Kwikee steps.

My order arrived one day earlier than promised. They were packed properly so there was not any damage during the shipping process. I did the installation myself as it didnt look to difficult. From start to finish it took about two hours to complete the installation and make electrical connections. It would have gone quicker but I had to “massage” the bolts that were slightly curb bent with a wood block and rubber mallet.

It was refreshing to deal with a company that has knowledgeable service reps and who seemed willing to make the ordering process as painless as possible!

E-trailer is my new “go-to” store in the future!
Thanks Rob…. Your the best!

  • Is Just The Step Available For Replacement On A Kwikee 26 Series RV Step?
    The step itself for the Replacement Step, Motor, and Switch for Kwikee RV Electric Steps # LC3711361 is not available separately, unfortunately. To replace the steps you're going to need to buy the entire assembly again with # LC3711361. I know it's not ideal however since Lippert does not offer that as a replaceable part, this is going to be your only option.

  • Replacement Frame for Kwikee 26 Steps
    I checked with Lippert and the Kwikee 26 Series step does not have an available frame replacement for it, so you will need to replace the entire step assembly. For a new Kwikee 26 Series Step you'll want to use the # LC3711361, which fits on coaches with a 20-1/2" x 7-1/2" bolt pattern and is an electric step with 1 riser that does not contact the ground. I've linked a review video of this part for you to have a look at, as well.

  • Replacement Series 26 Kwikee Electric Single Step
    I do have an option for you but I contacted Kwikee because the motor, gears and linkage are different for each series of steps, it is not possible to replace the series 26 step frame with the series 28 frame part # LC3747457. They do not offer just the frame for this series. I recommend to replace the whole step with part # LC3711361. I have attached a diagram of the bolting hole pattern for your reference.

    If your 2020 Jayco Class C currently has the Kwikee 26 Series, 23-1/2" wide steps installed, the Replacement Step, Motor, and Switch for Kwikee RV Electric Steps, # LC3711361 is a direct replacement. This is the same model and build used by the OEM's.

  • Comparing the Kwikee Single Step 26 Series vs. 28 Series
    Without knowing the width of your step, all I can do is give you some options to compare. We have the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Frame 28 SERIES SINGLE STEP # LC3747457 which has a mounting bolt pattern of 6.5 inches x 22 inches and a step tread of 23.75 inches by 10 inches. It has a 7 inch vertical rise. The 26 Series step # LC3711361 has a mounting bolt pattern of 7.5 inches by 20.5 inches. It has a tread that is 23.5 inches by 8.5 inches. It has a 5 inch vertical rise.

  • Recommended Kwikee Step for Ford E-350 Van
    There are not steps specifically made for Ford E-350 Vans, however there are many of the class III motorhomes that use the Kwikee steps as they are built out. To add steps to your E-350 van, I recommend the Lippert Components Kwikee 26 Series Single Electric Step # LC3711361. According to my contact at Lippert the upper panel can have other mounting holes added if needed to fit your frame. This kit includes the switch kit and motor. I've attached a video to assist.

  • Replacement Parts for Kwikee Series 26 Steps
    We have several replacement parts for the Kwikee 26 Series steps depending on what you need. We have some different switch kits, # LC371010 and # LC369311, so if you believe the switch is the problem select the one that matches what you have. We also have Link Assembly C and 9510CU # LC379801 which is pretty much all of the electrical and mechanical components that operate the steps.

  • What Comes with the Lippert Kwikee 26 Series Electric Step # LC3711361
    The only things included with the Lippert Kwikee 26 Series Electric Step # LC3711361 are the step, the motor, the switch, and the adapter harness. This is the most bare kit that we carry as the other 26 series steps come with the control module as well. It actually wouldn't be a bad thing to have an extra switch and adapter harness in case something were to need replacing anyways.

  • IS The Kwikee 3711363 A Good Replacement For A Kwikee 3711161
    I wasn't able to find a 3711161 but I was able to find the Kwikee # LC3711361, which is a 26 series RV step. If this is what you have then any other 26 series step would have the same mounting dimensions (20-1/2" wide x 7-1/2" deep) and overall width (25-1/4") so you'd be able to use the Kwikee Electric RV Step Complete Assembly # LC3711363 as a replacement. That being said, both of these are the same step, but with different equipment included with them. The # LC3711363 is the complete...

  • Replacement Gear and Parts for Original Lippert 3 Step on 2008 Forest River Georgetown 373
    For the replacement gear you will use the Replacement Entry Step Gear for Lippert Kwikee 25 and 26 Series Triple Steps # LC369354. I believe the shear pin you are referring to is a part of the gear itself. The motor is # LC369506 which comes with the smaller gear. If you want to replace the entire assembly you can use the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Replacement Kit # LC379804.

  • Is Frame of Kwikee 26 Series Available by Itself
    I checked directly with Lippert (see cut out below), and the frame by itself is not something they have available as a replacement for the 26 Series steps. That said, if your control unit is fine, there is an option to get the steps without that, which will save you some money over completely replacing the whole unit. So what you can get is the following: - Replacement Step, Motor, and Switch for Kwikee RV Electric Steps - 26 Series # LC3711361
