Lippert Electric Tread Lite Steps Will Not Stay Extended


I research the problem that causes the backward of the step, for few, when it is in full open position when we put our foot on the step to get into the rv. In other words... The motor give the full extension of the step but the step do not stay in full extension with a load on it... retract for a few inch

It sounds like the brake solenoid on your Lippert Electric Tread Lite Step part # LC353542 is not functioning properly. There is a manual lever on the motor that can sometimes get flipped off which will then not allow the steps to stay extended. In order to check this you will need to look at the lever on the motor and then compare that to the attached photo to make sure it is in the "ON" position.

If it is in the "ON" position then odds are the solenoid has gone bad and will need to be replaced. The steps do come with a one year warranty but if you are out this warranty then you would need to contact HappiJac for the Heavy Duty Dep Brake part 340942 as we do not carry this part.
