Kwikee Step Linkage Broke
When stored in my garage I leave my steps extended with the switch off so I can enter and exit with out the steps moving in and out all the time. I was going to start the coach yesterday and when I turned on the ignition switch I heard the steps retract like normal and I heard a loud thud. I shut the ignition switch off and after checking I found the linkage assembly had broken. It is a type A.
My question is has anyone else had this happen and what causes it. There was no obstruction and it must have happened at the end of its travel when folding up. What shuts off the motor when it completely folds up? Can something fail that allows to much pressure on the linkage?
Your thoughts or experience would be much appreciated.
