I guess I'm a little dense but how would the steps work if you disconnected the ground?


I thought the same thing when I read that. Wondered if and one else would catch it. I don't thank he meant it that way.

When you get tired of messing with it (LOL we finally did) Just buy a new motor online. Piece of cake to replace for under $75

I forgot to mention that perhaps the Mod is ahead on this. It sounds like you have the magnetic switch problem corrected and now it sounds like the motor is going.

I think your rig has the phenolic housing that contains the worm gear and is an integral part of the motor. If so, call AM in Oregon and order a new motor before you get off somewhere with the steps stuck in the retracted position. It's much easier to fix at home than in a muddy campground(winter is here). I don't have their number handy but if you don't find it with a search, PM me and I'll look it up and post it.
