If it's like our '13, it's buried in the wire harness on the firewall. Just to the left of the steering column.

AND I mean buried, dead in the middle of the largest bundle of wires under there.

I stuffed mine full of various insulations to make it quieter. Now it's just load enough to hear without blasting you out of the cab.

Mine is in the same spot. I took mine off and replaced it with one from Radio Shack. I really wanted the one that Monaco uses, but they're no longer available. Then I thought about the one in my Chevy truck, but it's complicated and expensive. I found two at Radio Shack, bought both and picked the one that sounded the best. Mines still audible, but no longer makes you want to shoot yourself.

Parking brake buzzer

Thank you both for your help. My husband was able locate, and quiet, the buzzer. You're right about the sound, it was driving us, and more importantly, our yellow lab crazy. He kept trying to get out of the coach!!! Why do they have to make these things so darn loud anyway. Thanks again.

I think they make them loud so that if you are on the road with stero playing, they want to make sure you will hear it, if you start losing air, or have some other problem. Most likely a liability issue with the manufacturer.

They are made loud and aggravating precisely so you will react to them! If you had a "warning" with a gentle, soothing tone, you could easily learn to ignore it for some period of time until you get around to servicing the coach. Sort of defeats the purpose.

The builders could install a cutout switch on every warning alarm, as they do on aircraft. How do you suppose that would work out? ;-)
