And now it's powered!


It's a little slower than I would have chosen but it will probably only be used once we've set up camp and not every time the door is opened. It's also a bit loud, but I do suspect it will be a little quieter once it's painted, paneled, and insulated.

Not too slow. Is it fire and forget? Or you holding the switch?

I think the sound is alright for the rare times you would ever hear it but if You are concernd with it they make a 12 volt screw drive motor thats small and quite they use to extend couches in to beds on motor homes . The ones we used on bus's were quite

This is not going to turn into the Justin Wilson joke about the cajun buying his first chainsaw is it??? lmao
.
Absolutely!! What the heck IS that noise!?

Hey, I am almost back to normal.
Went for a ride yesterday and my depth perception is back to normal.

AND the honeybees were exonerated!
The ball of wasps under the fender of the jeep came roaring out a couple days
ago. Zipping all around. They were made oily and lifeless!

Honeybees haven't been interested in what I have been doing and that makes me happy.

Not very concerned, truth be told. I think the mic was a little sensitive as there wasn't any background noise, and in any case, I'm over it already. The step does exactly as it needs to and the wife is happy(!) with it. Task has been crossed off the list and have moved on to other items.

I saw lots of other options out there when spec'ing out an actuator. This one was IP65 rated (outdoor use, water spray and dust) as opposed to others which were lesser-rated (or not rated at all). It's going to- or actually does work already. Moving on...
