Here's more on how mine came from AS.

There's an air line that originates at the rear tank (tank for rear bags) then comes up to the left kick panel where a solenoid is mounted, from there the air line goes directly to the roof air horns. This solenoid is activated electrically from the horn relay, which is mounted to the right of the steering column.

Besides the roof air horn there is a regular looking 12V horn under the hood, on mine.

Both are activated by pushing the steering wheel button.

Best solution here is to tap into your air supply for the rear suspension on the coach and plumb up to the grill. Mount your new "truck stop" supplier true air horns under the grill away from the real world and then hold on to your ear drums. Those critters are loud!

jy electric air horns are under the grill and just don't do the job and I'm ready to mount real air horns. Just another of the long list of items to add to Airstream One.

When we bought our AS told DW that it would be nice to have air horns, she didn't think it was needed. Then I was looking under hood and there were 5 horns, two looked like car horns but the others were trumpet shape, turns out the three are electric air horns. but weren't wired right.
I solve my wiring problem then figured reason for low decibels was that they were hidden behind hydraulic tank for jacks, realigned them to grilled area facing forward and was able to test on neighbors cat who happened to be approaching coach so I waited until it would do some good and now know they work great.

This is what I replaced my electrics with...
Very easy swap too.
Stainless Steel, and less than $100 for a pair.

I did the same as Klattu, Bought them out a chandlers for 70 here, sounded the same as the original horns only better, but fitted the same holes!
I have got a pair of very large chrome air horns. rigged them up to the workshop compressor at 45psi - oooooh! sounded like the Queen Mary (1). Think I will need some air tank for them!
