Expert Answers about RV and Camper Steps


  • Solution for Kwikee RV Electric Steps that Work in Reverse After Installed
  • We're familiar with this issue which happens when the incorrect switch is used. Kwikee Steps use two different magnetic switches. One is a normally open circuit and the other is normally closed circuit. The switch must match the controller. Otherwise, the steps will work in reverse, as you described. The original switch kit included with the newer Kwikee 32 Series Electric RV Steps # LC372261 is an open circuit. The two magnetic sensor tabs mount in the doorframe and on the door. When...

  • Can You Add a Step to the TorkLift Glow Step Scissor Steps

  • Recommended TorkLift Steps for Palomino SS1240 Pop Up Camper
  • I have a solution for you, but the TorkLift # TLA7843 require much more mounting space than you've got available on your 2020 Palomino SS1240. Because of the limited mounting space under your door, you'll need to use something similar to the TorkLift GlowStep Camper Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear - 4 Steps - 20" Wide # TLA7804-8000, which has a very narrow mounting bracket that is 1" tall x 20" long and will work well in the limited space you've got on your Palomino SS1240 camper. I...

  • Installation Questions About Power Source for Kwikee Electric RV Step on Ambulance
  • I have a solution for you, but since you don't already have a step installed you'll need to use the Kwikee Electric RV Step Complete Assembly - Single - 28 Series - 23-5/8" Wide # LC3747453 instead of the # LC3747452 since it has all of the components needed for a new installation, where the # LC3747452 is designed to work as a replacement with existing components. With that said, you can use the Kwikee Electric RV Step Complete Assembly - Single - 28 Series - 23-5/8" Wide # LC3747453...

  • 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.

  • MORryde StepAbove RV Steps Modification or Replacement
  • After doing some research I was unable to find a way to safely modify your MORryde StepAbove RV Steps with Strut Assist - 23-3/4" to 24-1/4" Wide Doorways - 3 Steps # MR45RR. We do have the MORryde StepAbove RV Steps with Strut Assist - 23-3/4" to 24-1/4" Wide Doorways - 4 Steps # MR75RR which would change the steps to 8" apart. The thing you would want to watch with the 4 step would be ground clearance. The 3 step is a threshold-to-ground height between 31-1/2" and 37-1/2" and the 4 step...

  • Recommened Steps for Work Truck with Entry 52 Inches Off Ground
  • I have a solution for you, but there aren't going to be any steps that will have a capacity of greater than 325-lbs that you're going to be able to use for something 52" off the ground. I'll also add that the TorkLift GlowStep # TLA7834 you mentioned aren't going to be tall enough for your truck since it is designed for entry heights between 31" and 42". For something that tall off the ground you will need a 6 step setup like the TorkLift # TLA8006, which only has a 325-lbs capacity,...

  • The closest TorkLift GlowStep Revolution steps we have to those dimensions is part # TLA8103 which measures 22 inches wide and has a rise of 7-1/2 inches. So they're 2 inches wider and have an extra 1/2 inch of rise on the steps than what you're looking for.

  • Can 3-Step RV Stairs be Replaced with Quad Step

  • Upgrading to 2 Steps on a 2017 Salem Cruise Lite 201BHS
  • We don't have a way of knowing exactly which steps are currently on your trailer however you can use any that you like and will fit. If you measure the mounting bracket of your current steps you can use that to find a replacement. For example, the Flexco Manual Pull-Out Steps # SMFP-2100 have a mounting bolt hole pattern of 24-1/2 inches wide by 7 inches deep. The steps themselves are 24 by 9 inches.

  • Recommended Side Entry Step for 2019 Ram Promaster 2500 High Top
  • We do have one solution that would work for your 2019 Ram Promaster 2500 Van, and that is the Carr Hide Away Step for Work Trucks - Side Mount - Grated Steel Platform - 24" Long # CARR501090. The step releases when you push it from the outer edge with your foot, so if you want it in during travel you would need to push it back in for storage while inside the vehicle and then press it again before exiting the vehicle to utilize it. The big advantage to this particular step is the ability...

  • We sure do. How many steps are you looking for? For a 30 inch wide door use part # LC791575 for a quad step if your threshold height is between 35 and 44 inches, part # LC791573 for a triple step if the threshold is between 27 and 36 inches, or part # LC733932 for the double step if the threshold is only 22 to 28 inches. A friend of mine just bought a set of these for his tow hauler and absolutely loves them.

  • In order to determine if the Replacement Step, Motor, and Switch # LC3711361 is right for your truck, you'll need to 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.

  • Recommended Fold-Up Steps for 2008 Montana with a 29 inch Wide Doorway
  • If your doorway is 29 inches wide then the SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps # LC791575 that you referenced is the perfect solution for you. It is designed for doorways that are 30 inches wide so you will just have an extra half inch of space on either side. My contact at Lippert said that this is normal and okay for use.

  • Replacement For Kwikee 39 Series Single Step
  • I checked with the manufacturer, and found out the frame by itself was not an available replacement part for the Kwikee 39 Series. So you would need to replace the entire assembly: - Kwikee Electric RV Step Complete Assembly - Single - 39 Series # LC3724742 So while I know this is not the news you were looking for, it is the only option for a replacement for your bent frame.

These have landing gear to help make the bottom step more stable on the ground. There's also glow tape on the sides of each platform to make it easier to see the steps at night.

  • Replacement Stairs For 2019 Gran Design 29RS
  • It isn't really possible to give you an accurate answer without knowing the measurements of your 5th wheel are. If you do not know how/where to measure for new steps, you just need to measure the width of your current step assembly, and, followed by height from step to step; and finally, take a measure center of the step assembly at the top at the cross bar and make a diagonal line straight down to the edge of the bottom stair. With those measurements in hand, I can properly give an...

  • Which Electric Steps Will Fit My 1995 Winnebago RV?
  • You will want to start by measuring your current steps, or at least measure the mounting location to find out what size steps will fit in that area.
