REGARDS DAVE.

 

There are quite a few earlier forum threads relating to Omnistep problems. You can retrieve them by using the forum's SEARCH facility (see the "Welcome, motorcampman" box towards the top right of this webpage) and putting Omnistep in the Keywords box and selecting All posts as the Date limit. This is a link to an example that may be helpful:

Although the wiring for an electrically-operated Omnistep will be similar for all installations, there can be differences regarding where the power to operate the automatic-retraction relay is taken from. And the fuse that protects the step-motor could be anywhere!

 

There are copies of 'official' Omnistep wiring diagrams (slide-out and swing-out models) on

(Although the step-design differs, the wiring circuitry is the same for both types of step.)

 

As your step functions via the switch in your motorhome's habitation area, the fault does not lie with any fuse fitted (and there certainly should be one) to protect the step's motor. As I suggested in the 2008 forum thread I provided a link to above, the likely culprits are connections (loose/broken/corroded/disconnected) or the relay.

I had similar problems with my 'Project 2000' step on my Autocruise Starburst during my spring (wet !) holiday. Mine turned out to be poor (exposed) contacts in the step and motor.

A good soaking with contact oil spray, then completely sealed the plug with Black Silicone, has worked for me, like you I took the oppurtunity to give the step a good service at the same time, re-greased the chain etc., They do pick up a lot of muck tucked 'Under there'. Ray
