Looking for a fuse.

We are trying to get the entry steps to work properly on our "new to us" 2004 pace Arrow 37c.
They do retract with the ignition switch, but the on / off switch inside the door does not seem to be working so they stay down till I start the coach.
Also the inside "lock out" switch does not light up when it is turned on.

Question is, where is the fuse / fuses that supply's power to the on / off switch inside ?
Any help from a 37c owner would be appreciated.

Are you sure it's not just a bad magnetic switch in the door?

Attached is a schematic for the steps. I can't help with location. Fuse for my steps is in the BCC. Maybe yours is too...however if they are working the fuse is ok. Sounds like the reed switch is bad.

The fact that they retract with the switch on, tells you the magnet is ok. It sounds like the fuse in the battery control center under the hood. Check those. If they are ok. Check the switch. If that is good, clean the connections in the step area.

Retracting with engine on bypasses the magnetic switch doesn't it? He can't get the steps up via the door.

Magnetic switch seems to be working, via continuity check.
Big question is why does the inside "step switch" does not light up when on.
Per my volt meter there is continuity when the switch is on and not when it's off, but neither side is "hot' either on or off.

Looking at the schematic above, there is supposed to be +12 volts going into that switch. Looks to be a fuse or circuit breaker ahead of it.

May not help but the door switch on our Itasca has a circuit breaker located in an electrical box inside the compartment on the right side of the entrance door. This box has several push to reset type circuit breakers inside it. You might check your outside compartments to see if yours has something similar.

I FOUND IT.
Looked in the BCC and what do you know the 3 amp "step switch" fuse was not there. Fortunately the circuit board is labeled, so a quick trip to NAPA, plugged in the fuse, and all works as it should !
Thanks to all for the help, especially kluffinator (Randy) for feeding me the link to download the manual for the steps.......
We learn more about this "new to us" coach everyday, thanks to these forum members, who have a wealth of knowledge.

NO! The switch still opens and retracts the step. Havenít you noticed the step goes out with the engine running if you open the door?

Where did that come from? I just said no the switch does not bypass. I then asked if you didnít notice the door opening with the switch on. No where did I attack you or say anything bad about you.
