You have 4 wires TO the step
1. RED large wire is 12 volt positive
2. YELLOW wire is 12 volt when Ignition key ON
3. WHITE wire will have 12 volts when the switch by entry is OFF or ON. Check both modes
4. The BROWN is the ground signal from the Magnet.
IF you have 12 volts at the RED and WHITE(either way the switch is turned) and the step goes in and out possible control module. IF the YELLOW wire has power with Ignition OFF, then the step will operated as it is right now. Disconnect the yellow and the step will probably function as designed. Then trace the Yellow and connect it to Ignition ON only. Doug

It's fixed.  Thanks for all the help,  Here is how it was fixed.  Background first:   found out the entry door magnetic switches that REV and Lippert gave me part numbers for were incorrect.  They were contact switches only with no electronic function internal to the switch.  That's why the step would extend/retract when door opened/closed, but wouldn't stay out with door closed or retract when ignition was on.

Mystery solved.  The correct switch for my coach is part# 16622748 Desc: SWITCH DOOR ENTRY .75 MAGNETIC WHITE.  As soon as I installed that switch everything worked exactly like it was supposed to.

HOW many wires does the correct switch have? Doug
