Was this written by the guy who translates owners manuals from Chinese to English through Lithuanian, tagalog, and Inuit?

My guess is that he's talking about the stairwell cover. But then, I've been wrong many time in my life.

Duff Nortin (linear actuator"s) a leading manufacturer in this feild.

Is used to operate the step platforms on NewMar motor homes.
Platform/ foot rest floor in front of the passenger seat of the motor home to cover up the stairs when traveling that your partner(spouse) has a safe place to step on, so she can safely get up and get you some thing from the fridge, while on the move, and I can't get mine to work properley, now what is funny about that???????????????

Yes, you are 100% right, the actuator runs, but the platform (stairwell cover) does not move, and I don't know how to get the platform into the travel position, to see what the problem is???? as I can't seem to pull it out,

That piece is not cheap.

Sorry to hear you are having this problem with the unit. When this unit went out on the DW and I about two months ago our step cover was locked in the up position. It was our fault that the unit stopped working, a mat we used to cover the first step inside the coach got lodged in the unit and ruined it. We had to remove the unit and force the step cover down by hand. I ordered a new on and changed it out and now the step cover works great. I am sure it is easier to get the stuck step cover down than it is to get it up when stuck in the down position. Wish you the best with it and hope things work out well.
