Kwikee Step Series 42 - has anyone taken one apart?
I'm looking for a service manual or advice on dismantling my Series 42 Kwikee step - it is the enclosed one that slides out like a pair of drawers. Has anyone taken one of these apart or have a maintenance manual - I have the user manual with some wiring and electrical troubleshooting info?
It was opening and closing intermittently, then stopped altogether. I decided to pull it out and bring it into the garage to work on it (bit of a chore - another example of user friendly RV design).
It is extremely dirty and in addition to doing some electrical/electronic diagnosis I'd like to remove the steps from the slides for a thorough cleaning and lubrication (the parts resemble large heavy duty drawer slide mechanisms). The bottom slide is held in with small bolts, so it would be a hassle but I could get it out, the upper is riveted in place and I don't fancy taking it apart.
I was hoping that there was a release similar to most drawer slides to allow the two parts of the slide to separate without having to remove the slide from the sides (pull out the "male" and leave the "female" bolted or riveted to the sides of the box). If there is I haven't figured it out.
