Indoor Step Well Cover

I have an 06 Allure 470. The indoor step well cover will not move in or out. I have read the earlier comments and found them helpfull. But, where is the motor that runs the cover mechanism located? The fuse is burned out, and continues to burn out when replaced. Suggestions.

Ours broke down the day we bought the RV. The dealer fixed it before we left. It was a problem with the motor.

I have a 2004 Allure the step well cover got stuck in the fully extended position. The problem turned out to be the stop switches, these were disabled and the cover now works fine. In regard to getting to the motor or mechanism that runs the cover I was never able to do that. The shop that fixed my step was able to get ahold of the person who did the design work for Country Coach, he gave them instructions on modifing the wiring to bypass the stop switches that were a design problem. The shop that did the work for me is Cal-Western there number is 562-802-2786, good luck hope this helps.

Step Cover Repair

This is what I did to repair the Step Cover on my Allure. Picture 1 shows the Step Cover Extended in-place in my motorhome. It would not move in or out. To unhook the step cover from the mechanism, first look directly under the front of the step cover. Picture 2 - There you will find a bracket that is attached to the retractor arm. Undo the bolt and detach the step cover from the retractor arm. Now lift out the step cover. Picture 3 shows the extended retractor arm. Picture 4 shows the motor with the retractor arm extended. Picture 5 shows the motor with the retractor arm retracted. Note: If your step cover is stuck in the in position you must undo the bolts to the motor to remove the step cover from the bracket. Picture 6 shows the steps and the generator extended. Slide under the steps and look up. There you will find the four bolt heads that holds the motor in place, see picture 7. Undo the for bolts to free the motor. I did not have to replace the motor. It just needed to be cleaned and greased to work as good as new.
Good Luck to All.
