Since I'm new to this forum I thought I'd introduce myself. I have been in motorhomes most of my life, on and off. Decided to jump in again, but in an effort to not lose my shirt (ask me about my new 2002 Country Coach sale in 2004
) I purchased a 'mint' 2005 30 ft. Land Yacht/Workhorse. I've been slowly bringing it back to as-new status (promised myself I wouldn't do that) and wonder if this particular oddity was standard?
The center of the steering post, where there should be the traditional circular pad for the horn, is indeed there, but no horn upon 'pushing the pad'. Upon popping the pad off, yechh, no wiring coming up thru the column to activate the horn. Can see the spade terminals for where the wiring should go. Hmmm. Notice an industrial looking 'button/switch' just left of the steering column along a horizontal surface. Voila...press the button, the horn blows! Odd indeed, but it works. I know how to 'fix' this but just am curious, was this STANDARD on the Land Yacht? Airstream essentially said they just purchased the chassis from Workhorse and had nothing to do with horn? Workhorse never returned any phone calls.
My guess was/is, Workhorse forgot to bring wire thru steering column and this was either a DEALER DIY or buyer DIY project.
Nice meeting all of you folks...am also a BMW motorcycle nut and on many of the BMW cycle forums with same USERNAME.
