Electric Steps Problem

I own a 2019 Thor Windsport 29M. The clevis pin broke. I was able to clear out the clevis pin and carter pin. I have a replacement but I cannot seem to align the swing arm to the slot for the clevis pin.

Iíve tried steps up and down but it will not align. Is there a way to remove that swing arm and realign it? Thank you.

Kona Tom

Tom,
Activate the step motor and as it moves toward the out position unplug the power cable going into the motor. This stops the motor midcycle

It helps to take the plug out first to understand how it attaches
Once you figure that out open the door while you're under the step holding into the wire plug

It helps to have someone open the door while you're holding on to the plug

When the motor, swing arm, is in the middle of the cycle just push the step to the swing arm and put in the pin
