Doug:
The white wire going to door/reed switch, when I do a continuity test, is a ground wire.

Thank you Mike.
I have ordered the 4 way pigtail from Kwikee as they suggested. Wally’s World in Yuma will have it in in 2 days.

There are 4 wires underneath connected to the step wire harness at a quick connect.
1. LARGE red wire is constant power
2. WHITE wire is 12 volts from the On off switch by the entry door NOT the Magnet switch.
3. YELLOW is from the Ignition
4. The remaining BROWN is going to the magnet switch. The GROUND feeding the magnet switch comes from any ground source usually from the frame. Tiffin may have used a white to the magnet switch. Don't get confused by that. Doug

Bought 4 way pigtail. Disconnected and tried to attach purchased pigtail but it won’t fit so of no use.
When I disconnected wires at least the under step light turned. I the wires disconnected but the is a small hum for about 2 seconds every 20 seconds or so.
Giving up. Getting mobile service person coming to assist at $195/hr.

Kwikee has an excellent troubleshooting manual online, and with a multi meter you can check the switch, motor and control box. You said that the switch is good, you can run 12v directly to your motor to see if that works, if so that leaves the control box. Being a 1998 you probably won't find a replacement at a dealer if so the tech will say you need to buy a whole step unit. The control box has 2 relays inside if you look closely and see a burned relay you know what the problem is.The relay is less than $4.00 at Digi-Key. Hope this helps,let us know how you make out.

Thank you Gjay.
Fortunately I have two months yet until I have to move. I will have someone check those relay switches.

Ok...looks like it’s a control problem. I have removed it and need to replace it as it is a solid piece. I see no way to replace relays.
The model is 909513. It was installed in 1997.
I understand I may have trouble finding one.

Try these people Colaw
At some point in time the magnetic door switch was changed from normally open to normally closed contacts. Or was it the other way around!
Make sure you get the correct switch! Colaw gave me both!
