I just found this thread. Guess I am just working too hard repairing the hurricane damage.

I'm surprised a fuse did not pop but burned out motor could happen. One would think the nose would tell.

My slide out cover gave me problems including a two bad switches. Mine used to stick when closed so ultimately I installed a small wood block to keep it from closing 100%. You really can't see it but that tiny bit gets it past the sticky place.

The first time taking the thing apart was a bit scary but once the carpet was removed from the face it became apparent how it is built.

I can tell you from experience it is dangerous to stand on it wearing socks when it is extended and the front door is open. It can spit you right out onto the ground. Ouch.

Step cover issues!

Hey! Me too! Our 2009 Camelot has a step cover that works well (I can see the motor rotate the central screw-drive) when extending toward the door. However, it will not retract, which makes for painful gymnastics when either "attempting to" leave or enter the coach. Is it possible that the motor is bad, if in fact it works one way but not the other? I do not see any obvious missing nuts, screws or rivets broken.

Could be, check to make sure power is constant both sides of switch. When using. If high amperage on one side or other thereís an issue.

If the motor work going out but not in it is not likely the motor.

Those switches are notorious for failing.

Do you have two switches that run it? If so do they both NOT work?

If you have one switch pull it out and you can find which two posts are the 12 volt inputs.

Then reverse them and try the switch. This will allow the switch to use the good set of contacts to run the motor in reverse.

A picture of the switch will help determine which wires are the power input wires.

Step-Cover switch

Hi Myron,


Yes there's a switch on both the Pilot and Co-pilot consoles and they both do not work.

Swap the wires that have retract and extend on them. If it runs you may have two bad switches. I have had to replace mine a couple of times.

Thinking limit drive out or in on motor. Needs to check for power in to switch also.

I had the same problem on our 2006 Diplomat a number of years back and it turned out to be something loose in the mechanical mechanism. I can't remember the details now but extend the cover and from the ground in front of the door bend down and look up under the cover. Have someone operate the cover while you watch and you may be able to detect the problem.

My cover is carpeted so getting under to service was a trick. I had to tug around to find the staples holding the carpet on the drop down face part. Once that is pulled loose I was able to find the screws holding it in place. It is still a literal pain in the neck to see inside there.

I forgot I have some files on this. These may help. They may not all apply of course.

Thank you Myron, Perry & Bob!


All worthwhile areas to look in & I will. The cover can be extended out only an inch or 6 inches or even any distance and still there is no retracting it. I have to get underneath the carpeted step cover and hand retract it by turning the end spindle counter-clockwise with pliers over and over and over... Pain! Wish my drill bit chuck opened a little further, then I could just lock it on and drill the screw back. But better than that, if the retract just worked!

The motor is a very wimpy one. It draws only 4 amps at full load. When stalled, it will draw more, but might not draw enough to blow a fuse.

The mechanism, although ingenious, is crude and crudely executed. It can easily bind in a way that the motor cannot overcome. That might explain why you only have the problem in one direction.
