I have a 36' 1992 AS Land Yacht built on a P30 chassis.
Seems I have some issues in that are common to the steering column.
The first problem is with the horn . Noticed a couple a days ago that I heard the sound of a horn in the distance while sleeping at a race track. Seemed to be blowing for an hour or so and than quit. The next day I found my starter battery dead. Turns out the horn was mine and just went off on it's own. I charged the battery but found I still had a 2 amp draw with the ignition off. No sound from the horn but unplugging the horn fuse and that stopped the draw. plugged the fuse back in and the draw came back. Unplugged the horn and it stopped again. Horn must be toast from blowing for an hour straight.
Found that, if I turn the steering wheel the current draw stops. My conclusion is that I have a short in the steering column that's intermittent.
The other problem is with the wiper system. When I first start the MH I get one cycle of the wipers every time. Some times the wipers will come on by their own in intermittent mode. Off position doesn't stop them. Low and High work fine. Again I'm assuming that the wires in the steering column are the cause.
Here is my question: Has anyone removed the steering wheel and disassembled the column? What is required to do this?
One of the biggest problems I've found working on the MH is finding the correct parts. I haven't been able to fine a replacement switch assembly or multi purpose switch stalk that looks anything like the one I have. The one I have has a slide switch for the intermittent speed. All the others I've found have a dial around the stalk. Air Stream has been no help since they say that the parts manuals are no longer available and their records don't go back that far.
Any help is very appreciated.
