Hello, picked up the coach from the dealer. On my way to our campground (about 15 miles) the ABS caution light came on (silverleaf display on dash). I ignored the light, so I could arrive at the CG. I will play around with the individual wheel sensors once we have the coach at home. It was not blinking, or red, just yellow and constant. It bothers me, but I don't think I have a real large problem, if I'm wrong please let me know. Home for two days, then back to camp over the 4th, no internet access on the road.

Yellow lights on the annunciator indicate a condition that needs to be looked into, not an active safety fault or mechanical-doom-&-gloom warning. Red ones mean pull over asap & get it fixed.

Monte, try cycling chassis battery power off and on at the disconnect and see if the yellow light goes away.

We don't have an Apex and our Silverleaf's are not identical but do you have an "ABS Diagnostic" switch on the firewall ahead of the passenger seat? My yellow ABS warning light and flash code diagnostics led me to an ABS wheel sensor that wasn't pushed all the way in...

I will try both of those suggestions this weekend, the coach is camping and we are going to join it tomorrow.
