steps do not fully open or close -battery is draining , nothing on

2018 thor FE. Steps do not fully open or retract. Motor makes noise and stops. I have to manually pull them out or in. Also could this be draining my battery. It is losing about 1/3 power each day with nothing running.
any advise. I would at least like to disconnect the power to steps so it doesn't try to open and then burn out motor. I disconnected a nearby harness, but I think it goes to the step light only.

Thanks,
Steve

Wrt the steps, tried various lubes but a generous spraying of wd 40 on all step moving parts seems to work. Wrt to battery, possibly parasitic draws from the propane alarm, radio, and TV(s) and/or battery water levels, battery quality/age.

If the batteries are the factory low quality Harris ones, save headaches and replace them and add a battery watering system as well.
