Are these problems related?

We have a 1996 Bounder. We just discovered that the horn (regular horn in middle of steering wheel) is no longer working. Then we tried to plug in a 9V fan in the plug near the steering wheel, and no go. Also, the generator remote start switch, which is next to the 9V plugin, also won't work. These all used to work fine. Wondering if the problems are related, and if anyone could help us find a fix for them.

Does the engine start? Does the generator start using the main switch?

Answers to questions

The engine runs fine, it is a 454 Chevy gas engine. Generator cranks fine from the generator itself, just not from the remote. Haven't checked fuses, don't know where they are. Batteries are connected.

You may have a lift up dash that has a small clip on the right side of the steering column. Undo clip lift dash up. Fuses under there and some are in the black box when you open the front hood? Engine access panel or whatever it is called.

My remote generator switch problem was a broken wire in the 4 wire harness that ran to the generator. My broken wire was by the hot water tank.

Trouble shooting the generator switch was a hassle. Unplug remote harness and short wires together with test clips and then check if all wires have continuity front to back.

Good luck
Terry

Google your vehicle for fuse box location, I think that's your problem?

If they all stopped at the same time I'd say they are on the same circuit. Like already said you need to find the fuses and start checking. An ohm meter is useful in checking continuity across the fuse.Sometimes a visual inspection is hard to tell. Good luck.

Your generator remote is not connected to any thing but the generator. Usually the remote problem is where the the remote wires plug into the side of the generator control box. Old dirty connections.
The 12 volt power port next to the steering wheel is most likely fused in the fuse panel under the dash.
