    well i found out today ,, on my own rv :disapprove: ,, that there is one tool that is needed by rv techs ,, and rv owners alike ,, and that is a ball pean hammer ,, yep that's right fixes more stuff than , oxy clean can take out stains ,, i had a prb with my Kwickee steps today ,, would not go back in ,, even when the engine was running :eek: well the little step light would go off ,, so i figured ,, ok the contacts and the module are working ,, so i thought ,, :eek:
    Maybe the motor is hung up ,, and yep ,, hit it with a hammer , and all is well now :cool: ,, but gonna take the motor off tomm ,, and take it apart ,, and polish the windings ,, and lube the brushes ,, and also put the hammer back in the compartment ,, and use as needed ,, :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :blackeye:

    You probably have a dead spot on the armature. May not hit it again for a year, might next week..... New motor is in the future!!

    Along these lines, how many lube the steps on a regular basis? If I dont do mine a couple times a year they slow to a stop, little lube and away they go again. Then again I'm in the rain shadow(the rain shadows me all the time).

    Jim, I use the regular spray that comes in a can that's recommended for steps and try to remember to lube ever month when using them. With my memory I probably forget and the steps might go lacking ever once in awhile.
    Let's see Rod, at 85 bucks an hour for MH repair I guess about 100 bucks for a hammer repair is not a rip off. One hour hunting the hammer and about 15 minutes to lay down and bang it :laugh: :eek: :evil:

    Darn Ken. I was hoping you would say there was a lot of money and a lot of RVing in my future. :clown: Oh well, please just keep sharing your "visions" with us about Rod or anyone else. I love this site and having fun with everyone. :)

    Yep, know what you mean about the usefulness of the ball pean hammer..Well just the other day, the DW was outside the MH and I said lets go, get in. Well, took out the ball pean hammer and....well...........you know......she got in when she was good and ready and the Dr. said my stitches can come out in two weeks. :eek: :laugh: :blackeye: JK
