Default Update

I was able to buy from Clippard a new cylinder UDR-40 4 1/2" stroke length.
Installed it last night. The step now goes in and out.
I may have to make some adjustments. I don't think the step fully extends.
The reason I say that, because when I bring the step in it actually extends
out a little further like I think it should be and then comes in.

That may be the locking mechanism doing its thing.

let the system air bleed off with the step out. If it remains locked it is fully extended, if it gets loose it is not.

Make sure the two switches are being activated at the full in and full out positions.

I don't think you are referring to the speed adjustment settings. Are you saying make an adjustment to the air pressure switch?

Curt is right, I am referring to the two switches activated at each end of the step mechanism movement, one when the step is in and one when it is out. I believe not all coaches have mechanical switches, some may have mercury switches?? My coaches all have had mechanical switches.
