Welcome to iRV2 .

Could you please take the time to complete the " About me " section of your profile and consider setting up a signature line , so members will know all your RV's info .

Could you add the year of your RV and the Kwikee control box number to your post .

I take it that you have access to the testing info ; I'll attach these pdfs just in case you don't.
Was this ; steps not staying in with engine running; the original problem ?

The yellow wire is supposed to go a power source that is hot when the ignition is on. Specifically where, I'm not sure on your rig.
