Tips and Tricks / Kwikee Steps Won't Stay Out
« on: May 04, 2022, 12:02:53 pm »
For the record and to possibly help someone in the future.

On the "new to us" 2015 Phoenix Cruiser 2552 the steps would ONLY follow the door no matter how the Door Switch on the wall was set.

We wanted the steps to stay out while parked, like they are designed to do.

To make a very long story short, someone installed the wrong switch in the door frame. My steps need a Normally Open switch. (When the door is open and the switch is at rest the circuit is OPEN.)
The switch installed was Normally Closed. [The N/O and N/C switches look the same you need to use an Ohm Meter to be sure which one you have.]
Apparently, the person who installed the incorrect switch switched the power wires on the motor to make it stop working backwards.  pyho
 ie with the motor leads correctly wired if you opened the door the steps would retract and when you closed the door the steps would extend.

So, with the incorrect switch and the motor wires swapped the steps will only follow the door.

If you see this behavior CHECK THE DOOR SWITCH..

This is the Normally Open switch I ordered:

Good luck and happy trails!

Hopefully by now you are all back to good health!
Ron, no problem on the mix-up. It happens to us all!  ;)

Thanks, Ron.
We have been here for a while.
We traded our 2004 PC 2350 for the 2015 2552.
We never even considered anything other than Phoenix Cruisers.

We're really enjoying the extra room and the improvements with the newer chassis and coach.

Happy Easter.
Be safe.

Thanks for all your responses.

Thanks for all your input.

Turned out to be a combination of squirrel wiring damage and the fuel pump and fuel pump control module being bad.

Dang squirrels!!!

We have since traded the 2004 2350 for a 2015 2552 and loving the switch!

Do any of you have an aftermarket anti-theft device on your cruiser?
If so, was it installed at PC? How do you reset it?
I can't get my 2004 2350 to start and I think it may be the aftermarket anti-theft device.
I have no documentation on it, I cannot even figure out what brand it is.

This all seems to stem from a mama squirrel making her nest in front of the left wheel well under the hood.
While there she decided to munch on several of the non-factory wires there. I think some may have been the anti-theft device.  pyho

Any thoughts or suggestions will be welcome.
(I have checked all the normal things like fuel pump, battery, etc.)

I just listed our 2004 2350 PC on FB marketplace.
If you know anyone wanting to get a first motorhome without spending a lot of money, this may be just what they need.
Asking $35,900 .
We love our PC and want to move up to a bit newer 2551.

Search for 2004 Phoenix Cruiser in Wichita, Kansas to find the listing.

Unfortunately, the file got corrupted.

I will see if I can scan it again in a few days.

It's not very informative but interesting to look at.

I know the videos were for older PCs but those of us who own the older PCs still found them useful. It would be nice for them to bring them back.

Looks like a good spot.
We found that using 5 gallon buckets with lids is a good place for us to store bottled water.
The water provides weight and the lids with a cushion on top makes a great ottoman or without cushion it makes a good place for your coffee cup!

Safe travels!
