Power step motor/gear repair

I do apologize for starting a new thread on this, but the search function simply will not work for me.

I have seen numerous posts about the powered front steps failing, with the most common problem being a failed gear in the motor drive assembly.

The label on my step says it's made by COACH STEP, INC. There's a phone number, but it's not good any more as the coach is an '05.

I do know that these are usually power window drives, but is there a file location that lists which drives go with which coach?

I know I can call Newmar, but of course this happened on a Friday night. I was hoping to order it from Amazon without having to climb on boxes for too long.

As always, thanks for any help.

Search function workaround

"but the search function simply will not work for me."

I feel your pain about the search on irv2 not working. I belong to several other groups and am able to use their search boxes well but IRV2 does not like me

Here's my work around that usually gets me the info I need.

Open your favorite search engine and enter " COACH STEP, INC repair IRV2" the top 3 hits have the info your looking for.

So by adding irv2 to the query I get results from this site.

There was a recall on the Coach steps last year. Call Newmar and they should point you to the correct number to call. Coach is owned by Lippert.
