Step Slide Cover Repair, 2007 Cayman

I have a 2007 Monaco Cayman XL PBD. The motor for the step cover has failed. I am being told the only way to get to the motor is to open up the flooring near the entry and in front of the drivers seat. Is there any other way to get to the motor without taking up the flooring inside the coach?

Good afternoon Harry Polley; Not up to speed on your coach but, most motors for the step are accessed under the step when the step is extended. That is how earlier models work. Yours could be different. I would think if you could not get to the motor under the step Monaco would have put a cover in the floor, maybe, or you would have to access the motor above the generator. Not sure if yours is on a slide or not. There have been discussions here on both air and electric operated floor covers. I would try putting in information on your coach for, how to access the motor for the step cover on a 2007 Cayman Xl, in the search box at the top right of this page. You should be able to find some information as other owners here have had motor failures. Some have had plastic bushings fail on the mechanism that operates the step and the motor is fine and runs. Hope this info helps and you can find some reading until you get some more responses from owners of your coach. Good luck!

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I think 8.3Oilbuner is right. I can't imagine a manufacturer putting a motor where floor has to be removed to replace it!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

He is talking about the step cover...the one that you run out when your driving so there is a flat floor under the passenger's feet up front...I think. Mine is air operated so I'm sorry I can't help you. I would guess you can reach it from under the coach...a guess.

Most of the time the problem turns out to be something wrong with the mechanism
located under the sliding floor .
If you can get the cover pulled out you can see the mechanism by going outside getting
on your knees and looking up .
I have read many posts about these steps but I can't recall anyone replacing the motor.

Look down towards the bottom of this page , there is a box labeled similar threads
where you may find more help .

Cayman step motor

I also have a 07 caymen xl. Not long after I bought it two years ago the step stuck in the in position. After a little sitting and staring at the step for awhile I started removing trim at the front of the step. In my motorhome some of the screwws are hid in carpet but they are there. When I got some trim off I was able remove slide mechanism screws and pull the step out and even though I did't need a motor it was very accessible and just for future reference I got a motor number and went on ebay and it was available with no trouble. I wiil look in my papers when I get in the rv again and see what i can find but it was easy to find a motor. It was not a big deal at all once I tore into it. GOOD LUCK
