Rethinking This

After a little thought following my last post on this, I decided that treatment with oil or WD-40 might just attract more dirt and dust... now thinking next time I will try using silicone spray on the joints after a good blast of hose end water. The silicone spray would coat and dry, leaving the joints dust free. Plus, I keep a few cans of it handy for storage door latches, slides, window mechanisms, vent crank gears, etc. Just thinking out loud here. Roger

I think the steps run directly from the batteries and if weak from use will not opertae the steps properly. I had this problem with my '88 Superchief even if plugged in. As I recall the batteries only recieve a "trickle" charge when plugged in which will not power the steps.
