Thanks everyone for your suggestions and descriptions of what you have done. I found the step fuse under the hood in the front left hand side. Would be easy if I can find a switch plug in that takes place of the fuse and has a fuse plug inline. Would be only 3 or 4 feet to the dash.

wa8yxm, thanks for your explanation of the step operation. I thought it might work like that. I usually call that a "high current limit switch" that is an integrated electronic switch that shuts the circuit off due to a high current, not the usual type stand alone switch. The Lippert slide system shuts down the same way, unless it jams.

Anyway, I guess I don't have to be that concerned about it hitting the curb.

If the fuse is a blade or modern plug in fuse then SIMPLE!

You get an online fuse holder which is a wire with a fuse holder installed.

Make sure same type fuse.

Pull fuse and insert into fuse holder in wire.

With voltmeter check where fuse was to determine hot side.

Get a couple male spade terminals for your wire with a switch and wire.

The spades plug in where the fuse was and use the fuse holder on the wire plugged into the hot side then wire to switch and back to other side of the place where the fuse was.

If glass fuse get a blown fuse and solder a wire to each end for plug in or use some sleeve connectors that go on the ends of the fuse and have a tab for wire connection.

Car stereo installers have many of different options for tapping into fuse blocks.

I have a newmar kountry star and it does in deed have a switch in the control panel above the passengers side dash with all the other electronic controls... but it doesn't seem to stop them from operating when I flip it off.... i have only had my coach a few months so I wasn't sure if that was something the prior owner did or not...still don't know.
if anyone out there has a 40' kountry star diesel pusher and knows it would be helpful !!! LOL

Thanks

That switch controls whether or not the steps work when parked. In the off position, the steps should deploy and stay there, regardless of whether the door is open or closed.
