Fuse for house steps?

2013 view 24v. Does anyone know where the fuse is for the house steps. They won't extend. Checked everything I can think of except the fuse. If there is one.

I've no idea about a fuse, 12V steps operate by resistance measured at the motor controller, exactly like an auto electric window. When high resistance is measured the motor shuts off. I would expect 12V steps to use the same procedure.
Kwikee states to lubricate their step hinges monthly to prevent the controller from shutting off power to the motor unexpectedly.

After getting everything disconnected and preparing to leave the campground, I started the coach and viola! the steps started working again. Guess it may have had to be reset with the ignition.
well it seems to be working fine now.

Steps are powered by the chassis battery. There is a circuit breaker (white button type) in the right seat breaker area, that controls this. The magnetic switch on the door is many times at fault, wires broken, loose, etc on it, Check the position of the step control rocker switch also as it either allows the steps to go up and down every time you open/close the door, or leaves the steps down till the engine is started. If you are used to it being in one position and it got moved to the other, you may be experiencing something you are not used to.

The View/Navion forums on Yahoo Groups are a good source of info for problems such as this.

Had this issue on our Villagio. Bought plug/pigtail assembly, awkward testing underneath with short leads. Wound up 1/2 way through just removing motor and testing by itself. All good. Put back in and all worked fine. Dead spot?
