99 Monaco Windsor step ??

Hello All,

Is there anyway to get the step to stop going up and down every time the door opens...
I have tried every switch I see on panel , The one that says step does nothing.
Not sure if its a light or what ever, But there is a step light



Thank you in advance

What brand step are they? If Kwikee, there are troubleshooting steps to find out if the controller is bad. https://lci-support-doc.s3.amazonaws...cd_0001636.pdf

What I meant was is the stairs go up and down when the door opens and closes but looking to just find a switch to keep your steps down

On my '05 Monaco Knight the Entry Step switch in the DOWN position will keep the stairs up when the screen door magnets separate when the door is opened. If you're not paying attention you could hurt yourself falling out expecting a step that's not there. The steps should stay up until the Entry Step switch is in the UP position with the screen door open.
When the Entry Step switch is in the UP position the steps will extend when you open the screen door and retract when the screen door is closed aligning the magnet switch halves.
The steps are supposed (mine don't always) to retract when the ignition key is moved to the START or RUN position when the screen door is closed regardless of the Entry Step position. This is supposed to prevent the steps from being damaged if you try to drive off with the steps still out because you left the Entry Step switch in the DOWN position.
I put the switch DOWN during the day leaving the steps extended so I can go in and out without having to mess with the switch every time. I have a routine when it's dark and I don't plan to go out again. I put the switch in the UP position to retract the steps and then I lock the deadbolt. I then tell the DW that we're "up and locked" referring to the steps and the deadbolt.

My 2002 Windsor has a step switch on the dash just inside the door. In one position the step will operate any time the door opens or closes. In the other position, the step will stay out unless I start the engine.

The switch by the door controls mine "except" if the ign. key is on, then the door opening and closing controls it. You don't have your key on by any chance do you?

Until you read the owner's manual, if you have one, or read the posts on this forum explaining how the step switch works I have one piece of advice:
Don't open the screen door and go rushing out of the coach without making sure the steps are fully extended. It's likely to hurt you or the steps or both.

If you have Kwikee steps, the step switch will, in one position, allow the step to follow the door, and in the other position, keep the step in the out position, unless the ignition key is on.
