No air horn on 2000 Affinity

My air horn doesn't work. Any quick fix for this?

I unscrewed the back of the horn and cleared out gunk stuck in there.

That was a quick fix for me.

Similar to Dean's fix. I removed the bell and cleaned out cobwebs in the bell. Had them in both airhorns.

Is the air getting to the horns? I had to replace the Hadley solenoid. Easy job but you need to make sure to order the correct part number for compatibility.

Mine quit working last year. I tapped the horn solenoid in the bay under the driver's seat with a screwdriver and it has been working since. I have a new solenoid but won't replace it until I need to.

You sure don't want to be driving that old entry level coach without an airhorn! Get the tank topped off, leave the keys in the ignition and the pink slip on the dash. I'll send the DW to come get it out of your eyesight.

You see, we care about our fell CC members!

(I've got one horn acting up, and I've saved a link to this thread for when I'm ready to look things over. Good info, and great tips on moving the solenoid.)

Best to the OP, and your fine Affinity, and to all,
Smitty

Smitty,

The keys are in it. Thanks for caring so much!


And Brian thanks for the picture. Now I have something to look for.

Also the copper line to my auxiliary compressor had a leak. Just Fixed that. Is there a link to my horn issue. About to find out. Drum roll please.

OK I'm running out of options here. Dismantled the horns which were clean. I can't find the solenoid. Even called Greg Bootes at winni/CC, and David at motorhome s of Texas. Looked in driver's side bay inside and out without luck. Looked in cabinet over driver seat. Nothing! Looks like a trip to 150$ per hour service for this. 😬

I'd be willing to bet it is located somewhere in that compartment under the driver's area. Mine is farther forward in that same compartment. When you took the airhorns apart did you happen to check for airflow by attempting to sound the horn? My horns were full of old mud dobber nests. To answer your other question, yes, the auxiliary air compressor is related to the airhorn, at least on my coach, but this is probably not the problem though. I'd be pretty confident the solenoid has gone bad. Easy to replace once you find it. There are a few styles of solenoids so be sure to get the right one. Also, be sure to order a new solenoid. My buddy bought one thinking it was new but it wasn't and turned to be defective.

Talk about frustrating. Took the rig in for service at a truck service center hoping they could fix my horn issue. Even they are stumped. No power to the little compressor. Which compressor. Does the Thomas industries compressor work the horn or the main engine compressor. Also is this a 12 or 120 voltage issue.
