Review of the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Kit


Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be looking at Lippert Components Kwikee step motor conversion and upgrade kit. Part number LC379145.So you're ready to get into your RV you open the door, and nothing happens. Your steps don't work, they're just stuck in position. Well, it looks like you need time for an upgrade or repair. In this case, our step motor isn't working properly, and it continues to run regardless of it when it's in it's retracted or extended position. That'll end up draining our battery, so we're gonna go ahead and make some quick repairs.But with this complete motor and electronic repair kit, everything's back in order.

This Lippert Component upgrade is designed to work with several old model Kwikee style steps. It'll upgrade your old motor and circuit board, to the newer, more modern style. This is gonna be a direct replacement for your step motor and controller. It's gonna bolt right back up to the same alignment holes, so everything's gonna fit just like factory. It's gonna tie right back into your same wiring, so you can make all your connections right down here when you take your old motor off.

It's also gonna have connections for under step lamp, which may or not be an option on your vehicle. The motor's linkage will tie right into your steps, and it comes with new hardware, so you won't have to reuse that cotter pin and push pin.And located in your door, you'll receive a new switch that's magnetic so there's no mechanical movement. Once the magnet comes near the other end of the switch, it closes it, grounding out your circuit, causing your steps to retract back into the storage position. There are several different configurations you can wire your new motor up to, to work properly with your RV. You can set it up so it works only with the door switch, opening and closing when the door open and closes.

With a manual switch, or with a combination of both, so you can have it when turned on, it opens and closes with the door and you can disable that setting with your manual switch.Included in your kit, you're gonna receive your motor with linkage, your control unit, your connector for switches, door switches and hardware. And that completes our look at Lippert Components Kwikee step for motor conversion and upgrade kit. Part number LC379145.
