Wow, I can't imagine having my RV that far away. Mine is just over a mile away so it's not too bad going over and working on it. My biggest problem is not having the right tool with me.
Regarding my step problem... When I went over on Friday to work on it again - to test the step motor - there was power at the switch (which had been absent) so I got under the step and unhooked the harness to the step. When I plugged it back it, the solenoid clicked so I knew it was getting power. I grabbed the harness that goes to the motor and when I wiggled it, the step worked.... Further investigation would indicate that the harness connector to the motor needs to be cleaned.
Unfortunately, this still doesn't explain the 'gremlins' I've been fighting over the last 3 years with the step. When the step has refused to operate, I know for a fact that there has been no power at the switch in the stairwell.
In light of the fact that there now IS power to the switch (and step), my investigation into why there is no power to the switch is suspended - until it happens again.
