Can you identify this part?

Hey y'all,

I have taken three images of a DC motor located in the bay under the drivers seat of my 1998 CC Intrigue 40. I would appreciate it if anybody can tell me what this motor is used for. I have a hunch but I'd like to get some opinions.

Image showing most of Bay...


A bit closer


Close Up

Thanks!

Step cover motor?


What is attached on the shaft end?

I'm thinking step cover motor

Thanks for the responses. While I'm not 100% certain, I am leaning towards this being a step cover motor. My step cover has stopped working and I'm trying to find the source of the problem.

I was hoping maybe another Country Coach owner had dealt with this problem before and would know for sure that this was the right motor. I hear that many of them are pneumatic but I think my coach may use electric.

As far as what the shaft attaches to... It disappears into a piece of square metal that does seem to line up around the step cover height lending further evidence towards the case.

It looks like the square tube holds the rack while the motor has a gear on it that moves the rack. Would make sense for moving the step cover.

My step cover has a limit switch in or near the square tube.

A Tap with a hammer makes it work fine again for six months.

My six month hammer is available for rent, but not affordable.

Hammering advice?

I can now say with certainty that this is the step cover motor. deandec, might you be able to elaborate on where exactly you are hitting? I have heard good things about this hammer technique before.

Thanks!

I just tap on the long rectangular black box mounted on the ceiling of the front compartment.

I think I did read a post where a more enterprising individual replaced the switch. I suspect the switch is the gizmo where the wires end at the side of the box.

For the past 10 years or so, the hammer has worked well.

Bingo you win the prize

Two 3/8" hex screws remove it and a flat gear is on the end. The square tube holds the shaft that moves the step cover back and forth.

Just pulled mine the other day and greased the gear...

Completely different than the one on my Affinity. Misstep cover motor is directly above the step and looks a lot like a windo crank motor. The Dayton gearmotor you have looks like my drive motor on my gen set slide. Even though our coaches are of the same make they sure did use a lot of different designed components. I guess what through me on your original post was it is under the driver side. Is your entry on the passenger or driver side. I know if you have found the answer to your question and maybe the problem with your step but I am trying to picture it all in my mind. Just curious if you got all figured out. By the way my step quit and ended up being a broken drive gear.

It is under the driver's seat.

My intrigue has this and the gear in the motor shaft had the set screw back out. Pulled motor out, lock tight on set screw and has work great ever since.
