Elkhart, Indiana (PRWEB) November 21, 2013 -- Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI™) is excited to present its new aluminum Tread Lite® Power Step for motorhomes. The lightweight Tread Lite Power Step’s all new solid-drive mechanism allows it to extend and retract quicker, while providing more stability than other power steps on the market.
“For years the RV industry has been asking for a better, firmer power step, and our design team has again exceeded expectations,” said LCI Vice President of RV Sales Andy Murray. “The new Tread Lite Power Step has an upgraded drive system, coupled with a sleek European look. It is also designed to stand up against the elements with durable aluminum step treads.”
LCI’s research and development team collected helpful customer feedback and conducted extensive research and testing to develop this premium Power Step.
LCI Motorized Sales Manager Marty McManus described the Power Step as quicker, stronger and much more stable. “We started from scratch on the design of this step and made substantial improvements. The step features attractive aluminum extruded step treads which deploy and retract noticeably faster.”
The Tread Lite Power Step also features obstruction-sensing technology for added safety. A smart sensor monitors for obstructions during step extension and stops deployment if any are found.
McManus said the Tread Lite Power Step will be made to standard dimensions to fit current designs, but its extruded construction allows for custom sizes as well. He added, “For those who really want to set themselves apart, the linkage brackets can be color powder coated as well.”
The Tread Lite Power Step for motorhomes will also be available to LCI’s aftermarket customers.
