Cool Intrigue Ovation 42 step slide cover quit working

I have a 2003 Intrigue Ovation 42 and my step slide cover just quit working. I have 12 volt power to my switch but have not found how to access the step mechanism. Any suggestions as how to access this system? It is in the covered position, so it makes it hard to exit the vehicle.
Any help would be appreciated.

My old rig has a rail that is enclosed but extends into the ceiling of the forward driver side basement compartment.

There is a limit switch in that enclosure.

I whack the enclosure with a wrench and it works for another six months.......

42 Intrigue Ovation step slide cover

We just went through this exact same problem on our 2003/4 Intrigue 42 Ovation. It took some searching by my local RV repair source, and help from Kevin Waite to get the part needed, but it's now fixed and works like new. The motor was the culprit, and it required removing the wiring and junction box at the top rear of the driver's side front compartment to then remove the access panel to get at the motor. An horrific spot to have to work in, but $954 later we are fixed. The new drive motor was very expensive, and apparently unique to the job, but having the step slide cover blocking access/egress was unacceptable. I hope you are able to get someone qualified and with the patience of Job to do yours. Safe travels.

Slide cover

Thanks for the info. I finally got it to reopen so we could at least go in and out safely. I will leave open till we get back to Texas this fall. We are full timers and don't have the time to order the parts on the road at this time. I will call Motorhome of Texas and get an appointment setup for that time.

Thanks again!

I also went through the same problem but was able to stop in Oregon to see Kevin and he lifted the outside end of the floor up to find that the connection on the threaded rod had come loose. Easy fix.
