Anyone know how to get access to the lead screw and motor that drives the step cover on a 2007 Tropical? Its not obvious how to do this and I have looked underneath but there does not appear to be anyway to remove the step cover or access the gear from below.

The steps have to be down to see the motor and the curved gear. Last summer we had lots of problem with the control box - steps now going all the way up, and one magnetic switch was installed wrong.

If they are Kwikee steps, Kwikee is much more helpful than NRV. Get the model from NRV, then call Kwikee.

Sorry, I must not have made myself clear. I am not referring to the Kwikee steps but the step well cover that extends out over the steps while traveling to provide a floor for the passenger. These are usually only found on diesel motorhomes because the door is all the way to the front of the coach and there is no floor for the passenger seat.

Not yet, I am going to give the dealer a shot at fixing it under warranty as we just purchased the coach as new June 28. With what I have had done so far at the dealership my confidence is low and I am just doing my homework in case I have to fix this as I have some other issues. I already know what is wrong (a broken lead screw nut) but this puppy is hard to gain access to. I may wait and visit the factory service center in Florida.

If you are coming to FL, make an appointment with the NRV Service center in Lakeland. They are great to deal with and the Techs. know what they are doing.
