scs/frigette electric step

I have a 2001 Winnebago Brave and it has a scs/frigette electric step which quit working. It will not retract at all. I have looked for information on this stop and cannot find anything. Would like to have a diagram of the wireing and maybe a trouble shooting guide. When you close the door you hear a click like it is trying to connect but you wait and you hear another click like it kicked out. It has been acting strange for awhile and now it doesn't work at all. Can anyone help me?

It is possible that the drive motor is slipping internally. My motor failure was that the steel gear output was press fitted into an aluminum collar. The gear eventually started to slip in the collar and not drive the step. I replaced the motor (now Lippert Components for $82) but then I was able to repair the old motor by installing set screws to lock the gear to the collar. The motor assembly is a power window motor assembly. I now have a spare.

Have you checked all your fuses. Have you lubricated the step recently.

There have been alot of module problems with this step. Verify that you have good supply voltages and a good ground. If that test passes, call Lippert for a replacement module.

I have the subject steps on my coach. They failed in the open position. The problem was the Gear Unit SP 163164 became rust bound to the shoulder bolt. I attempted to remove the shoulder bolt with an impact tool. Three hunderd pounds of hammer action was unsucessfully in freeing the gear from the shoulder bolt. The gear would not rotate due to the stop. I was sucessfull in using a hacksaw to cut the shoulder bolt at the frame. I drilled and used an easy out to remove the shoulder bolt. I purchased a new shoulder bolt ($7.00) from my local industrial supply store. Lubed , reassembled and reinstalled the steps. I should have drilled and installed a grease fitting for the Gear Unit. The sucessfull work was accomplished with the steps removed from the coach.

This was not a high tech repair however it required lots of heavy lifting on a gravel parking pad.
