Default Just bought our first coach 2000 scenic cruiser

My wife and I just bought this coach. We are very excited!! Does anybody know where the fuses are for the horns up top?? Or how to truble shoot them?? Funny everything else works on the coach but those darn horns!!! Will post a pic after I figure out how to use this site better. We are located in laguna beach ca.

On my Scenic Cruiser all the fuses are in the front compartment drivers side. But I was wondering if you just have the selector switch on regular automobile sounding horn. On my coach on the right hand dash are some switches and on one of those switches you can select regular horn or air horns. I have it selected for air horns all the time.
Hope you like your Scenic Cruiser, we love ours. Being a very good coach so far. Bought it brand new in April of 2003

Congrats, you sound excited and that is good I hope all your Motorhome outings are good experiences for you. We have had our 2005 Sunvoyager 15 months and still like it, just wish we could spend more time out on sightseeing with it but retirement time will come soon enough. For now we just improve and test as we take short runs. Flat screen TV, Blue Ray, Direcct satilite, Toad hookup, and two new recliner chairs.

LOL! Remember when camping was going out with a tent and roughing it out when we were young. Now we have these luxury vehicles with three or four televisions and we call this camping. I think we are spoiled!

Well, you really can't call this camping, my Manager who has a 20 year old Popup says we are not campers. He and his wife hike all the time even during the Winter months down in Tennessee, a few times coming real close to MaMa Bear and her cubs. So I just tell any who ask we are going RVing rather then camping. But yes we are all spoiled but who is complaining you don't get instant replays on life and you can't take it with you when you leave for your next higher altitude life eventure!

There could also be issues with those rocker switches. If they are not used over time, they tend to get internal corroding. This happens to the Air Horn rocker switch, an dother siwtches. (I find the rocker switches just inside the entry door-often don't work correclty...kind of iffy..if that makes sense.)

Old trick I learned from a 2 way radio technician. Swtiches and get greasy or "crudded" up inside them. Those dash switches, its good to work them often. Just swtich them on and off..back and forth..etc. The ones inside our door, I work them as much as I can. The trick also is to make sure the power is on to them. I would try pushing on the Horn ring switch (on the streering wheel) WHILE moving or working the switch. The power flow will push "thru" and make the switch clean some. It works...
if this makes sense....push the steering wheel trigger (bar) and then work the rocker swtich. It can often clean it out and work better.

That being said, I am having problems with the switch bar on the steering wheel, tripping while I drive. Its just great drive up to somebody, turn the wheel, and the air horns blast! Not user friendly..get dirty looks..I have to get down in there, take wheel off and get to that switch..I am sure the gap or tolerances are too close causing it to trip...

fyi..r

I wonder if the original poster got his air horns to work and if it was just the rocker switch that he didn't know about.

It is nice to find out if his problem was solved or not.

I am the air horn problem guy, sorry I have not checked this blog in awhile. Here is what I learned inside the generator compartment on the drivers side is the relay for then air horns to operate.I was told that if the regular horn switch works this may be the problem. I have yet to break out the voltage tester but plan on doing so shortly. Thank you for the heads up on the panel switch. The V.P. At gulf stream in Indy was very helpful with this issue. I did get up on the roof and polished them both last week r.v.ing so at least the look good!!! I will update after I track it down further. Thanks for the help!!
