    I agree. Ck fuse first. Only problem will be finding it. Mine was in the first basement driver side.

    I agree with the above replys, but why did it blow the fuse? I would look and see if it grounded someplace before replacing the fuse.,,,,, find fix and replace

    Hollis mine was blown and I just replace and have had no problems other than the one time. Yes, it's generally a short if a fuse blows so if it contimues then so more research will be needed. Hollis is an expert on finding them shorts. :laugh: :eek: :evil: ;)

    Re: auto steps

    well my fuse for the steps ,, is right under them ,, u have to crawl under the step to see it ,, one other question ,, do they go out ??? ,, and do they go in ,, when the switch is set for them to do that ,,, u might have a board problem ,, or a bad connection to the ign side of the step board ,, but JMO ,, let us know back

    Re: auto steps

    If I am understanding him they are supposed to go in when the ign is turned on. Think mine will go in when dropped in drive or with a switch beside the door. Mine would work with the switch at the door but would not retract with the key. If they don't retract when the door is closed they will automatically retract when the engine is cranked. Now I'm confused myself :laugh: :laugh:

    Nash yours sounds like it works like mine, the switch plays a big part if the fuse is ok

    Re: auto steps

    well I was carrying 3 hammers in the MH basement got rid of 2 only one now. I just put them in there to get them out of the shop, 5 hammers is to many to have. But just because I have them I would never hit my MH with a hammer or anything else and would bring pain to some one who did. But I hope I am never tested :laugh: :laugh: :bleh:

    Remember what the good book say “spare the rod and spoil the child” JMO: :eek: :bleh: :laugh:
    The one thing about using a hammer either you fix it, or you buy another one!:angry: :dead: :disapprove: :clown:

    When I worked at the shipyard I had two hammers in my tool bag a 2 Lbs, and A 6 pounded, the 2 was for finer types of adjustment. The driveshafts on a Carrier were made in section, and bolted together, over 200 ft long and weighed 200 tons and they had 4 of them for the ship. I was fun working there.... I think, but I was younger too :dead: :8ball: :cool:
