Taking care of my RV

As a woman, I am interested in doing basic maintenance and repairs to my Nat'l RV Tradewinds. I am fairly mechanical, however, I am having a problem fixing the step cover. A technician and I spent an hour trying to get into the motor portion of the critter. Short of dismantling the front end of the coach is there anyway to access this. It is stuck in the in position and sounds as if the motor is shorting out. Any suggestions?

I have no answer but as a woman myself... I give you the thumbs up... keep it up! More women need to learn to care for their campers! I intend to.

Hi Pat! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad to have you! I would suggest that you go over to the manufacturer's forum, then to "National RV" and see what you can find out there. Maybe one of the Moderators will see this and move it over there for you. Good luck & God bless!
