Replacing Kwikee 32 Series Steps on an RV


The Kwikee 32 electric stairs LC 372261 hit rock in road and bent parts so badly it couldn’t be fixed. The overhead bolt pattern was 22” x 8” and trying replace it with a manual unit like LC432682 seems impossible. I’ve been looking at LC 301704 Lippert Outriggers to try to mount the manual unit but don’t see how they would work. Any ideas on what manual unit to use? I could buy an expensive electric stairs but don’t want to replace every few years


Expert Reply:

The easiest replacement solution will be a new set of the Kwikee 32 steps you have part # LC372261 which will bolt right up. It's pretty rare these get damaged so I would not anticipate the same problem you had.

You would need outriggers # LC301704 to install manual steps like # LC432682 but it's going to be a bit more involved as you'll have to most likely weld the outriggers to the frame and then bolt the steps to them.
