Spray graphite is the best. NAPA sells it and I'm sure other places have it as well. Graphite powder is easy to find but the sprayable stuff is a little less well known. The agent (carrier) dries quickly leaving the graphite base to do it's job.


IMHO, slide-out lube would be better than silicone, WD40, PB Blaster, etc. All the above either collect dust & dirt or dry out.

Coach Step Problem

Hi, I posted the question above regarding what power window drive motor will replace my SCS/Frigette electric drive motor. Thru much research, I was able to get a lead on the correct power window lift motor to order. I have posted the results of my ordering/installing elsewhere on this discussion board under "SCS/Frigette" which is the original manufacturer of my step but now out of business.

I was reading this post because my coach step stops working after a drive through rain. I can get the step back in by putting a 12 volt current to the motor connection. After the undercarriage drys I can re hook the connection from the controller to the motor and it works fine. Could this be the ground issue?

Look first at each ground point to the frame, all close to the controller, removing and cleaning each. (All get wet from road spray and are subject to corrosion.) Next, check each plug (molix type, i.e., plastic) unplugging and plugging several times to clean pin and socket connectors. (Again all subject to road spray from front tire).
Good guess your problem will be solved.

Jim
