I checked all the wiring which seemed to be in new condition and properly connected. Checked the reed switch - working. The main wiring harness going to the stair board was folded and zip tied up to take up the slack. This was done during the stairs replacement at the dealer when I first purchased the MH. I broke the harness apart and opened the 4-way connector to check for corrosion or moisture - all looked good. Check continuity and power to the plug on the inlet side with the screen door open and then also closed. Didn't see any issue there. Then I reconnected the 4-way pug again - immediately the stairs deployed. So, I either have a faulty connector/connection at that location or possibly a broken wire or connector pin. As a precaution, I also remove the after market stair treads (I did this after the stairs worked) in case they were causing the steps to bind, affecting the motor in some way. Bottom line is that all is working as it should be. If this occurs again, then I guess I will change the 4-way connector. As an afterthought, I am wondering if the stair treads could cause the motor to freeze and when I disconnected the 4-way connector the lack of power to the motor freed it up. Just a thought though.

Thanks for everyone's help
Update: I eliminated the connector altogether. Used crimp connectors to reconnect four wires. All made weatherproof. It's working fine but will have to see for the long run.

My 2018 ACE is a mess also. Bought November 11 last year, some important problems, finally after 98 days after purchase finally everything is supposedly fixed. I drove home and front bunk won't come down. My lawyer advises RVs in general are not covered by lemon law. You will spend a ton and will loose anyway. If you can find a lawyer who will take it on in the first place.

Your lawyer needs to go back to law school the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (Lemon Law) also covers RVs. There are many lawyers ready to take on your case (Google is your friend). There are provisions you need to first address prior to contacting a lawyer for action. There are a number of repairs on the same item that are required to be fulfilled prior to crying uncle. I had a fuel system problem on a 2 yr old car that failed 7 times in a month after being repaired each time. The dealer was very gracious in declaring the vehicle a lemon, no lawyer involved. Got a new vehicle from the dealer.
