Roof Top Horns

I would like to know how to operate the roof top "air horns". Thanks in advance.
The motor home is a 2006 CC Inspire 360.

Push the horn "ring" or buttons on your steering wheel when your air is up. On my '09 Magna with Smartwheel it's the whole center padded section.

If that still doesnít work then the next suspect part is the air solenoid. I had to replace mine. I think all the CC models have them installed in the compartment under the driverís seat.

I removed the back end of my horns years ago. Cleaned out the gunk and they worked.

Have not used them again for about 6 years.

I guess I am not a "horn" guy...........

I could hear a relay located under the dash click pushing the horn button. The solenoid under the drivers seat was defective. DMV wouldn’t’t let me take road test till I fixed it. Last and only time I honked it.

I rented an 03 CC and it had a "Horn" switch on the driver's left console that switched between the electric horns in the genset compartment and the air horns on the roof. That CC is why I had to have a DP. My current rig has only the roof-mounted air horns.

My Ď90 Concept has air horns only. I added an ON/OFF switch when I redesigned the left hand console to avoid the occasional accidental leaning on the horn button, which only seems to happen in a campground or neighborhood.

Maybe OP's already got the issue resolved by now. No words from him since.

Curious though - does fed have regulations where the air horns are to be installed in commercial vehicles/RVs? The roof mount horns are creating big wind resistance when a vehicle is in motion; why not at behind the front cap and below the headlights?

I donít believe there is any regulation on where the horn is installed. Of course, there are maximum decibel limits. I would think you could mount them wherever you want.

First off thanks to all who responded. I have some great tips to try and look for. The coach is in storage now so when I go out for the monthly road run I will check a few things and report back.

Roof top horns are a great addition when some person passes u on the right in a lane that will be ending for them. Learn to lay on the horns.
