Automatic step magnetic sensor placement

My magnetic sensor for my Kwikee auto-step bracket has broken.
It is located on the latch side about 1/3rd of the way up from the bottom.
I recon this location is not optimal there is easy access for it to be hit as you enter the RV.
Question?: any recommendations on a different mounting location out of harms way and still function properly?
Thanks in advance for replies.
Chris

Step switch sensor

Here are a couple of pics of my step switch install which works well despite a badly fitting screen door. Hope this helps.
