Kwikee Steps Binding?

Sorry for being long but did'nt know how to explain with less words
For the first time I am having trouble with my steps. I can't tell the model # but it's on an 05 MH and has only one single step. The steps got stuck in the extended position. I thought it was an electrical problem so I took the linkage pin out so I could get them in before I hit something. The pin was very tight and I knew if it was that hard to get out , it was going to be harder to get back in.
It was'nt a electric problem. With the linkage off the motor works perfect.
The problem is, whether fully extended or fully retracted, the linkage arm goes too far to get the pin back in. The steps cant extend or retract any more. Nothing looks like it is bent.
I realize I took the pin out for a reason, but now that I know it's not an electrical issue, I'd like to lube it up and put it back together to see if it works or for more diagnosis.
The motor always goes to full extend or full retract. Do you guys know a way to stop it in the middle so I can get the pin back in?

If you can find the fuse, remove it and have someone activate the switch to run the motor while you momentarily touch the fuse to the contacts. If you're fast enough, the motor will stop in mid-run, and you should be able to move the steps so you can line things up.

slide the steps in or out to line up with the pin hole, then insert pin.

That is the way I did mine. Worked beautifully.
