The electric step in my 2005 Damon Daybreak still works but the override switch will not. Tried replacing switch to no avail. After checking it out I found there is not any power at the switch. This has me baffled since the step continues to work. Tried using contact cleaner on the wire connections, search for bad fuse...

Any ideas???

I am not sure what "overide" means here. Do you mean the switch to shut off the step? When you check the power at the switch, what position is the step at - up or down?

The "override" switch I am referrring to is the switch which allows the step to remain down when the coach is parked (therefore it doesn't go up and down each time you open and close the door). I've checked for power with the step up. I didn't think it should matter since the power should be there all the time to illuminate the switch when it is in the on position regardless of the step position(?).

Thanks for your interest. Any input is appreciated.

Just guessing at this point, but I doubt if that switch can handle full motor current and probably operates a relay that may need replaced. You may try calling the step manufacture for some tips and possibly some electrical diagrams or check out kwikee here... http://www.kwikee.com/Asteps.html ... for an owners manual and other documents. If not yours, it should be similar.

Another possiblity is the ignition switch wire (to bring in the steps when you tur the key on) is wired "hot" all the time.

The newer steps have a saftey feature that allows them to extend even when switched off and will no longer override in the closed position. The sensor that registers that the step is fully extended may be out of adjustment or the step may not be extending far enough to activate it so it is cycling regardless of the override switch position. A call to the step manufacturer may be in order.
