Executive Steps
#1

Just noticed when I retract the steps, the cover does not completely close.  You can push it shut but that is hard when you are alone.  Will get under there when it stops raining.  Any suggestions on what to look for? You

Mine did that once. With the stairs open look between / behind the stepS. There is a serpentine belt that was not supported. It was a simple matter on mine of reattaching a support piece. Your mileage may vary.

I have this issue too. Step cover has stopped closing leaving a gap of maybe 3" at the top. I can hear a solenoid clicking every few seconds on the control board. I'll take a look behind the step in the morning and see if I can see the serpentine belt Bill mentioned. It sounds a buzzer in the dash, fortunately I'm not moving far on Saturday as it might drive me insane.

Hello Mick, 

Did you ever figure out what was causing your executive step not to close all the way on its own? Mine is a 2007 Coach #1202 and it has started to come just short of closing all the way (buzzer sounds). If I push it it will pull the slack out of the chain and close all the way and the buzzer will stop (but like you said... doing that from inside the coach is not possible). Is there an instruction manual available that shows how to adjust the tension in the chain drive or does it sound like the motor is getting weak and just not able to pull the door completely closed without assistance.  
Thanks for any insights you can share.

After talking with Robert at Newell he helped me figure out my issue of the step not fully retracting (and making the “step out” alarm continuously beep).

There are two UHMW glide blocks on each side of the step that that cam over when the step is retracted. They wear after some time and need to be adjusted by a couple of millimeters and the step will fully retract. I will try to attach a few pictures to help visualize the glides and adjustment. 

Hope this helps.
