Picking Out Replacement Door Switch Solution for Kwikee RV Steps that Work in Reverse


I have 88 Beaver 40’ motor home that previous owner installed the Kwikee steps. The controller wasn’t working right so I got a new one. On testing I noticed the brown wire grounds out with door open in lieu of door closed. The switch looks like this one. I assume my current one is called normally closed. Basically steps retract with door open!

For a normally closed door switch we have the Lippert Components Kwikee Round Magnetic Door Switch part # LC379400 and for a normally open door switch we have the Lippert Components Kwikee Pleated Plunger Door Switch part # LC379407. So in your situation you are closing the circuit with the door open and that is working in reverse of what you need a normally open circuit so that the steps retract when the door is closed.
