Just had to replace the innards on my step - it failed to operate, and I found a fracture across the gear case cover, unknown origin, and presumptive cause of the failure.
Used a Kwikee "kit", P/N 44-8127, called IGML (Integrated Motor, Gears,Linkage) and this replaces everything including the electronic control module (Tech/Installer @ Foretravel was willing to replace just the broken component, but I decided to use the whole thing). Cost of kit was $344.03 from non-Foretravel source and that included TX tax and shipping.
We have only had this 2003 Coach for 3 months, and so far, the only concerns w/ the Kwikee are a) it is a bit wobbly when you stand on it, b) it hits curbs if you park too close, and c) on a slope where leveling will put the nose down, the coach can end up resting the right-front corner on the step which can't be too healthy for the step and maybe (?) was the cause of our case fracture.
