Electric Steps & Left Side Camera **HEEEEEELP**

We are buying a used 2021 Tiffin Wayfarer. The drivers side camera isnít working and while test driving it the electric steps were opening and closing on their own as if possessed by the spirit of a mischievous ghost.

Can anyone give me any advice on what could be causing these two problems. Iím concerned about the severity and cost of these repairs. Is it something we may be able to do ourselves or is too involved etc

Thank you!

There is a magnetic switch by the door. It is probably out of adjustment causing the steps to go in and out when running the motorhome.

The camera could be bad or it could have come unplugged from the back of the monitor. Not much to that.

First off, Welcome to IRV2!

Neither one of these are serious issues that would cause it to be a deal breaker.

The magnetic which was my first thought too, I suppose it could also be a loose wire in the steps, either way it's not a show stopper, just something that needs to be fixed before it gets driven very far. This switch is two small black boxes, one mounted on the screen door, the other mounted on the door jamb.

The same with the camera, not a show stopper. A loose or corroded wire would be my guess, but if it NEVER gets fixed you can still drive the coach just fine - that's what mirrors are for.

For the camera. look at the wires behind the display unit, under the dash. I had one camera drop out. Although all 3 of the connecters were together, one was not fully seated. I disconnected each of them, reconnected and seated firmly, then wrapped a little electrical tape around them to help keep them connected.

I am not sure what model step you have, but for my Kwikee (now Lippert) there is a wire from the ignition that retracts the step anytime the key is in the run position. My step does not operate if the ignition key is on. In my case that wire is yellow, in case that helps in trouble shooting. This definitely sounds like a loose connection somewhere.
