Having removed a tree stump with my steps, and trying the erroneous maneuver to correct this error by repeating it in reverse mode, I had to grind down the super rivets, replace them with lock nuts, and finally replace the solenoids located behind the steps. the automatic switch button, spring loaded, on the hinge side of the inner door frame had been removed by the PO, but the folks at Oasis RV in Tucson, AZ replaced it. I have since tried to reconfigure the steps with a deep driveway, and did the grind off and sledge hammer 're-tooling' of the slat bars. My only other problem is an undetermined(as yet) power leak that causes the steps to drop, then 'recycle' power until the battery gives out. Simply, the switch is a spring-loaded on-off, and a bit of timely rivet application should be able to modify any 12 V spring switchThe cut off switches for house and chassis batteries should be located just in the front of the door, They have a circuit board that can go awry mounted behind the wall, but not terribly inaccessible, and the proximity to the spring-switch makes me think they may be related in wiring. I realize that you a a few miles from AZ, and Andy has been THE source...finding someone willing to do quality work on an AS moho has become a challenge...I was a body mechanic in my employed life(ER nurse), and I never got the chance to approach a client with a wrench or hammer, so it has been a continuing education to figure out these American-made beauties...I would like to have a few score in storage, but I can barely keep the one in a yard...Bill Gates...if yer out there with some spare cash and a chance at more, please call me or email your chuckles...m
