Electrical issue need help solving

So we lost some electrical items;
1. Power step cover
Everything else on the selector board still works, Awnings, drivers side slide just no step cover

2. Both 12V plugs in the dash

Everything else works and I cannot find a blown fuse int he panel of inline. I am not sure if the two are related but the went out at the same time. I have tested everything I can find..

2014 Discovery 40G

Need some help here, Its a Scooby Doo mystery;

I would look for a broken/ damaged wire (at the step/ circuit board), and suspect this is the IGN ON signal wire that retracts the step when you start the engine, (to prevent driving w/ step out?). Fix the wire, then replace the fuse (maybe under dash or under hood?)

This is the interior step cover, Not the exterior steps. It is used while driving the make the floor level in front of the passenger, but yes it requires the ignition to be on to extend or retract. The panel that controls this feature also controls several other items that all work fine. I will pull the control module off and see if something is disconnected.

Interesting since both of these stopped working at the same time.

Do you have a fuse panel under the center console? Did you find the fuse for the 12 volt outlets? The items your having issues with should be fused somewhere under the dash.

12V plugs working

I got the dash 12V plugs working again, loose connection behind the fuse panel. The power step cover inside the coach that we use to make the entire floor inside the coach flat in front of the passenger seat while driving is still not working. Suspect its the control panel.

Taking the coach in for some other warranty issues and will get this one fixed also... Will keep you updated..

Thanks for the help
