Hadley Air Horns

Who has had a pair of Hadleys installed? I'm having the model HO2109A installed on my 37J Adventurer. The dealer sez, "We've never done any horns before." I'm going to assume they can and will handle it. But, if anyone has any thots, suggestions, etc . . .like tips. . .based on experience that I can pass on to the installers, I'd really appreciate it.

I put a set on my 07 Adventurer, I put the trumpets behind the front grill and put the tank and compressor on the front cross brace and everything fit just fine.

A lot depends on where you want the horns themselves mounted, on our DSDP's they've been on the roof, which means air lines through the pillars or sides and through the roof. But they're put in as the rig is being built so it not as much work.

I installed a VIAIR 2 1/2 gallon tank and constant duty compressor----@ 150 psi---on the cross member below the radiator in the front of the MH-----Air Horns under the hood----because they are under the hood they are PVC and loud ---they are much less expensive than a chrome set of Hadleys.

The install took very little fabrication---just some straight angle iron to hold the tank and the compressor---bolted into the cross member. LOts of wiring from the battery and then through the firewall for pressure guage etc; and then running hoses from the tank for air. I can air up my 22.5's easily and use air tools etc.

I missed the read about the kit you were getting---so I looked it up. This is not a big deal to install----I mean it is work and will take some time $$$ but it is simple follow the directions. Decisions you want to think about are where to mount the tank and compressor? Where to mount the dash guage? Where to mount the horns? If you have a horn on the roof it is no doubt electric so they can just use the old lines to follow for the air line.

For faster horn response you will want the solenoid valve close to the horn---some screw right into the inlet for the horn; mine did but they were not Hadleys. Also do you want your compressor to work without the ignition being on---if so then it need to be wired to an auxillary switch. Compressors take a lot of power so they usually wire straght to the battery and use a heavy guage wire.

Have them install a fitting from one of the tank ports for an air hose then you can top off your tires.

Not to be disrespectful, but if your dealer has never installed an air horn, I would suggest you go find a new dealer. This joker just don't get it. What is he going to say to you when you have a real problem? Like can you change the oil? Some of these "Dealers" are really sad.
