Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Busted your step and its motor beyond repair, but the wiring is still intact
  • Prefer to have control over when the steps open or close - this comes with a switch kit to allow you to do that
  • Have an entry height (distance from the ground to the mounting point) of 12" - 15" and a mounting place of least 23-3/4" x 11-5/8"

No, if you:

  • Want the steps to work automatically and can't reuse the old control unit from your previous steps
  • Are tired of dealing with potential electrical issues and want to switch to a manual step

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 LC3723383.


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 25-1/2" wide and 11-5/8" 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.

Video Transcript for Lippert Components Kwikee Single Electric Step Review

Speaker 1: Today you're going to be taking a look at the lifter components quickie 36 series single electric step. Stepping up into your RV can be a bit of a challenge. Especially if the steps aren't working. That's where our replacement steps are going to come into play. With our step installed, when we open the door it's going to automatically come out allowing us to step in easier getting in our RV but at the same time when we close the door, they're going to automatically retract making sure they're not going to catch on anything when we're driving down the road.Now from the top where it's mounted behind this panel, our step is going to drop down a total of five inches. In our application and the step we're using is going to be 24 inches wide by 10 and three quarter inches deep.

There is another step that is available that's going to be 30 inches. To see our website for your specific application and it's going to be made of a nice solid steel construction and have a nice black powdered finish for long lasting durability.The hidden amber light underneath our step is going to make it a lot easier for us to find that step in low light situations and have confidence when we're getting in or out of our RV. The included motor on our step is going to have a solid steel drive rod as well as stainless steel bushes for extended life of the motor. Our steps come with a door switch allowing it to know when to open up and when to close.Now our step is also going to come with a rocker switch in case you choose to manually turn it on and off and not use that door switch. Now that we've seen our steps and gone over some of the features, we do realize that every RV is going to be slightly different but we'll go ahead and give you a brief overview of how to get them in place.To begin our installation, you're going to need to remove your steps and disconnect al the electrical components that are on the steps themselves.

So I got our new step here and we're going to have our pigtail that we're going to wire into our motor home. Then the pigtail is coming off the step as well as the ground wire.So to get our step extended to make it a little easier to work with, I'm going to go ahead and plug in our pigtail and then I have a jump box here which is going to provide my power and grout. So I'm going to take the green wire with the ring terminal on it. I'm going to hook it to ground. I'm going to take my red wire, hook it to power, and then now we're going to take our jump box and turn it on and that should extend the step out.

We've made it a little bit easier to get access to our mounting holes.It's a good idea to have something underneath the step to support it. I'm using a floor jack to help me get the new step in place. It takes a little bit of patience to get everything lined up because it is rather hard to see but once we get the holes lined up, we can put our hardware in hand tight so that step will support itself and we can come back and tighten it all down.Typically you're going to have four bolts, one on each corner holding your step in place. There may be more but you just want to make sure that you replace them all and get them all nice and tight. Now these are the wires that we cut and as you can see they have some inaudible 00:03:15 connectors on them.

That's because it was hardwired into the motor. Now we're going to use the other end of the pigtail and then just connect our wires here so we can have a quick disconnect and if any issues arise we can disconnect it. It would be a little bit easier rather than cutting and splicing every time.So we'll go ahead and cut back these butt connectors and strip the wires and start attaching everything color for color. We're going to take a heat shrink butt connector and now these don't come with our kit but if you need some you can pick some up on our website. Then we can take the other end of our pigtail and we'll find the brown wire. It's already prestrippe.d So we can just put it into the other end of our butt connector and crimp it in place. Now we're going to do that for each one of our wires and we're going to connect them color for color. You should have a white, a yellow, and a red left on the motor home end as well as the pigtail end.We'll be using a heat gun to shrink down the connectors. I just want to mention if you are using an open flame you want to be extra careful not to burn the wires or the connectors themselves. Now this is where our ground from our previous step was installed. I'm going to go ahead and remove that bolt, take our new ground wire, slide the bolt and washer around it, and line up the hole and reinstall that bolt. With the jack out of the way, we can go ahead and shut our door. We can go ahead and go back underneath and start cleaning up all those wires.That'll finish up your look of the lifter components quickie 36 series single electric step.

Review from a similar Kwikee 38 Series in RV and Camper Steps


Here are my points: 1. Information on the right fit before I placed the order was accurate and appreciated. 2. The steps arrived very quickly. 3. The steps had some nicks in the finish that were not from shipping. I'll touch them up rather than send the steps back. 4. There were no instructions included from the company in the box. I went online to get them 5. The additional mounting kit hardware wasn't required as your information stated. The mounting bolts were welded in place by the coach manufacturer. I didn't learn this until I removed the old steps. The steps are installed and working, but the action is not as smooth as I had hoped. There's no reason to believe that there is an issue - they will likely smooth out after I use them for a season.

I know in past reviews people have said written installation instructions would be greatly appreciated especially for rv owners looking to replace or install new on their rvs. I installed the step and am happy with the install. It seems to be performing as expected. Please consider putting written installation with the steps.

  • Difference Between Kwikee 38 Series Electric Steps
    I can absolutely tell you the difference between the two options. The Kwikee 38 Series Electric Step # LC3723383 comes with a control module, which means it will automatically extend. The Kwikee 38 Series Electric Step # LC372338 does not come with this control module, which means they do not automatically extend. So to make things as easy as possible I highly recommend going with the Kwikee 38 Series Electric Step # LC3723383 which has the control module because of how convenient they are.
