mine messed up also. ended up replacing both the control module and motor. best price i got was from etrailer.com. works like a charm now. was not a big deal to replace, other than working on my back.

It was original equipment on our Winnebago. Still had the label on it so it was easy to track down who made it. Ours uses the same 214-1001 motor as Cliff mentioned above. Hardest part of replacement was removal and replacement of the trim strip between the steps and door bottom. ymmv

There are manuals available online but they vary with models and age. They should pop right up on a search.

I ordered one motor on-line and thought it was the correct motor..........but! NOT!
Went to Auto Zone and they have ordered the Dorman 742-227..
The one I ordered, the gear would not come off the shaft in order for the one from my steps to go on. How is the gear on the 742-227 attached? will it come off easily?

I wish you luck. I had that excentric arm crack. what a pain to replace. If you plan to remove the entire step assembly be aware that it is heavy. I still feel that these systems are made by junk yard mechanic

Couldn't agree more ! I reworked mine- took everything apart and lubed and it's working much better- But I have the brand X- WFCO steps on mine.

I did mine on my Overland bus, it was a GM wiper motor, very easy to do! take the old one out, first make sure the power is indeed cut! Take the motor to your local parts house, have them match it up! If I remember correctly, I had to drill 1 hole and tap it, but not a big deal! It had the two holes that matched perfect, but the one was not drilled and threaded! Worked great after that motor was switched out! Rail!

When I bought my new to me MH the linkage on the steps was broke and the steps were bent. I removed the four bolts on the stairs and took them into the garage, it's easier to work on this way than it is laying on the ground. I connected it to a 12 Vdc power supply to check it before I put them back in the coach.
