Kwikee steps broke!!

Well today I'm one step forward two steps back! My Kwikee 2 step broke the casting that operates the retract and extend funtion. I've been looking at the parts on the internet and my 2700 Series is not listed anywhere??
Has Kwikee replaced this series with another number? The straight down arms make me think it may be a 3400 series now.
I'm wondering if the squew they where on contributed to this breakdown.
I notice on eBay a new replacement set for $150 plus freight.
What to do?? Any ideas?

The folks at Kwikie where very helpful....even waited while I crawled under the bus again. The 2700 series is now the 40 series. The original controlers are obsolete but the one I had is still supported. I've got the cast actuator arm coming. Funny how you miss those automatic steps when they're wired in the up position...
