Front steps

The front steps go in and out when you open and close the door even when ignition is turned off. Normally they stay out when we're set up. Has anyone had this problem and know the solution? Thanks

Seems to be a common problem. With your key turned on, open your door, your step should stay out. Now turn your key off while camping. When you start the engine to leave your step should retract.

Good luck

Check your bypass switch by the door.

Thanks for the reply. We're camping now and with the ignition off the steps go in and out every time I open or close the door

Got it. Having a senior moment. The rocker switch on the side console was in the wrong position. Thanks for the replies

look for the switch like epj said to turn off the steps going in and out. Switch should be with other switches like outside light, etc. As a last resort see if you have a owners manual or talk to other campers. Dave
