Thumbs down Entry Floor Step Cover, Power floor slide

Our 2006 Alpine Coach, entry step floor will not operate. I have traced out all that I can. I have power and ground at both the extend and retract sides of the switch on the passenger console. I receive power and ground from the retract side of the switch when activated at the connector on the power mechanism for the floor. I do not receive power at the connector when the switch is pushed to extend. Does anyone have a schematic or diagram showing the connections of the floor mechanism and/or system. Or possibly an operation guide for the floor slide. I beleive there must be a solenoid in the circuit. My coach has every diagram believable except that one.

Dan,

As I recall, on my 06 there was a multi-pin plug behind the center console, accessible by removing the velcroed cover on the passenger side of the console. Apparently the rough roads that I drove on loosened one or more of the pin connectors. I had to play a guessing game of where to re-pulg some of the wires, but I eventually guessed right and the cover worked again. I then taped the connector to keep it from happening again. Hope this helps.

Dan- have you checked the switch? Sounds like the extend side isn't connecting.

Entry Step Floor

Terry M.

Thank You so much. You are deffinitely my wifes hero. What you suggested is exactly what was wrong. I found two wires disconnected and laying loose on the floor. As you said I had to guesss, but finally found which was the right connections. I have been trying to fix this since we purchased this coach last April and have had no luck. Its an obviously manufacturing problem because each time you slide the tray out for the levelers it puts stress on the connector. Another good thing though, the connector block was marked floor slide. Thanks Again So Very Much. It now works perfectly. Dan

Hello Again Mike, you tried to help me figure this out several months ago and I Thank You Again for your help. As you will notice TerryM gave me some very good information also and the problem is now fixed. I figured all along that it had to be something simple, and by golly, it was in deed. Thank You Again for your feedback. Dan
