Dicor's New Slider Steps Compliment Today's Sleek Motorhome Designs

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nov. 29, 2011
Dicor Products’ new slider steps
complement today’s sleek motorhome designs

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Dicor Products has introduced a new series of compact single slider steps for smaller, lower-to-the-ground motorhomes. The steps feature motorized models and more compact footprints than other RV steps. The slider steps extend on a straight plane from under the floor and are a barely noticeable part of the sleek, aerodynamic profile of today’s motorhomes.

“It’s a simple, elegant solution for the evolving designs of motorhome manufacturers looking to do more with less bulk and weight,” said Dwayne Nickel, director of marketing, the Dicor Corporation. “The very compact dimensions of this ‘hidden step’ provide manufacturers with excellent installation flexibility without a bulky, step-box look. The slide-out steps complement other innovations and add to the appeal of current motorhome design.”

The new 17-inch step 10856 Series from Dicor Products includes:

• Low profile motorized 17-inch slider step with a 21-inch wide by 18 inch long by 4-inch high box size for the Mercedes-Sprinter chassis.

• Low profile motorized 17-inch slider step with a 21-inch wide by 22-inch long by 4-inch high box size for the GM/Chevrolet chassis.

• Low profile manual 17-inch slider step with a 21-inch wide by 18-inch long by 2-inch high box size for the Mercedes-Sprinter chassis.

The motorized steps come with optional LED lights embedded in the steps’ non-slip rubber safety grips for nighttime safety. The electric steps are powered by the coach’s 12-volt battery.

The steps themselves are anodized aluminum surrounded by a galvanized steel box casing. The motorized steps can stay in an open mode for campsite convenience, and automatically retract with engine ignition. The gear-motor on ball bearings provides smooth, reliable operation, with a gear-motor protection system in case of an excessive load or stress. There is a manual emergency release if power fails, and the motorized steps also have a sensor for an open step warning light inside the coach.

Two other new offerings include a 10751 Series motorized 25-inch wide drop-down single step with the embedded LED lights option, and a 12474 Series manual 19-inch wide drop-down single step, which weighs a remarkably light 13 lbs.

“We’re happy to have the new single slide-out step series as part of our growing list of products,” said Nickel. “All these products add up to a great new motorhome experience.”
