Anyone know how i can disconnect the power (which is permanently live) for the electric step ? I am thinking of moving the switch an extra 18" inches away from where its positioned now to a more suitable location (at present we have to open the side sliding door -PVC- more or less all the way to be able to get to the steps switch) Its just a case of extending the wiring - without getting electrocuted :LOL::LOL: Spinney Motorhomes have just informed me that the fuse for the step is on the main board - but its not, i have looked amongst all the fuses and none state they are for the step, i have pulled out fuses for Leisure Battery and Engine Battery and the bloody thing still works :cautious::cautious:

easiest thing is to pop the switch out and remove the wires job done be sure to keep them from touching.

would i not get a shock off them when i try to add more cable to the existing wires so i can extend the switch ?

No, it's 12 volt. Just keep the wires away from one another and any surrounding metalwork.
