Cool No power to step override switch

Replaced old electric step and found out my override switch has no current. Steps will not stay extended.

You may need to go through all the fuses in the coach, I have 2 fuses and a circuit breaker involved in powering my steps.
What brand did you install ? Did they come with a wiring diagram?

Before you spend too much more time on a power check, you need a wiring diagram. To see if the override switch is a power shut-off or a signal interupt, to cut the signal from the door switch and stop step operation that way.
Was the over ride working with the old steps ?
Can you get ( download ) wiring diagrams for both sets and compare them ?
I'm on the road for the next week, no internet I'll get back on ASAP.

I have a wiring diagram and the harness connector is below the fridge compartment. However there is no harness connector in the compartment.
Old steps did stay out when parked. I believe the switch is power cutoff. I do not know if switched worked with old steps.
