Dash won't work

2009 Camalot. The dash will not come on when the ignition is on. I can start the coach and drive down the road and the cruse controle works but no dash info at all. After about an hour of running down the road...presto it comes on line.
We are on the road and the only thing that worries me is I have no engine info if I have a problem. I wont know it till it's too late.
Any ideas before I take it to a tech?
Thanks

My first guess would be a ground problem since the whole dash has stopped. If you pull the dash cluster all the grounds are daisy chained together. You can add another ground to the existing or trace the line out and clean it up. My 07 Neptune dash would occasionally drop out or reset and then start back working fine. I added a new ground to the existing and been fine since.

Try turning off all the 12 volt power for your unit. There should be 2 switches in the battery compartment. Wait 10 seconds and turn it back on.

For us it was 2 purple wires in the bay with the inverter and electric stuff. Until Thom made them stay connected we would have the dash drop out.

A monaco dash is mostly for etertainment they are know to be not accurate except the boost gauge and the spedo and tac are close. If you want to monitor your engine and Allison i susgest you go to the Silverleaf web site and download the VMSpc program and play with it, its free the link is below also a link to rvupgrade for the best price. I have been using this unit since 01 and would not wast to run without it. You will have to calabrate the program to your coach on MPG , Spedo, Miles travel and you can set alarms to warn you before you get to a cummins engine alarm. I use my VMSpc to keep up with fuel used as that is another gauge that is not accurate. Im sorry but cant help with the dash blackout but it would not bother me at all if it happened on our coach.

Of all the dash light don't work then it must be a ground. The lights are separated on 2 different fuses. Some need positive voltage and some work off ground. I'd run a new ground off one gauge since they are daisy chained.

Call Monaco, I had that problem and called, they told me where the relay was under the drivers outside panel. Changed and no problem now. They are in different places so call first.

I didn't know Monaco had a tech center to call since all the buy out stuff that has gone on. Do you have a contact number?

Thanks

PyrateSilly,

Can you give any more details about the two purple wires? Is this detailed in your blog? If so, what date? Thanks!

BTW, how do you tow your Harley and Abarth?

Here is the direct link to the page with the pics on it. Thom and Chris: Saturdays fixes It is/was located in the bay with all the major electrical stuff.

As for how we tow the car and Harley, at the moment we have a 20ft equipment trailer. We towed a 4Runner and the Harley on it. Then got the Abarth to flat tow so we have gotten the base plate and Thom is looking for the tow bar he feels comfortable with. We will then get a lift for the bike. After we get all that is when we will then sell the trailer.
