It would be worth your while to compare your motor/gear box to the Advance one I used. Take your motor to do a side by side comparison at Advance.

Must be nice to have the aluminum gear box for the step. I have the triple step on my '05, it has a steel gear with teeth that looks like a quarter slice of pie. Although I have the same motor, no gear replacement is available from any source. I, therefore, had to weld the worn teeth to build up the worn missing teeth and grind the contour to original shape. Either that or buy a complete new triple step assembly. Nothing pre '06 is available since Lippert bought ALL the manufacturing rights to ALL the step companies.

I recently had a new problem. The steps went out and then "flopped". The arm assembly had dropped from the gearbox. Basically, the ball joint dropped from the actuator. Turns out the only thing holding the ball joint is that they hit the end of the shaft with a star chisel to slightly expand the shaft. I drilled 2 holes in the arm where the shaft seats, tapped the holes, and installed two set screws with Loctite. New arm is on order in case it fails again. I'll pre-drill the new arm. What a piece of junk!

Kwikee step motor

Here is another thread on the same issue. It saved me a ton of money and misery.

My thanks to everyone that contributed. Note, my replacement had a smaller diameter gear so having them do a better lookup might save some hassle. This was my doing and not theirs. It just took a bit more effort to install. If the gear was the same diameter it would have been plug and play. Cheap too. $55

Mine hasn't died but as we all know it isn't if it is when.
Google qwikee steps and you find many versions of the same motor.

On my Newmar Coach Step assembly I replaced the step retract motor with O'Rielly part 43-306. A1990 Ford Taurus window drive, not sure which window but with part number should not matter. Cut plug of old motor (core deposit) to splice on new.
