2006 bounder air horn not working

Has any one had trouble with air horns on a 2006 Fleetwood bounder turbo disel not working air hose hooked up horns. Need to find out how to test horns. Thanks for any help on this problem.

You may have a switch on the dash that over rides the air horn , and allow an electric horn instead. If you have an electric horn working, at least you know the horn button is ok.
You then will need to look for an air solenoid, where the line from the horns hooks to the chassis, air system, and check for power when the button is pushed and good ground.
What chassis , is your Bounder built on ?
My Freightliner has an air manifold , with the solenoid attached under the drivers feet next to the gen set.

I had this problem once when I telescoped the steering wheel all the way up. Lowered the wheel one notch and the horn started working again. You might want to check the contact inside the steering wheel, it may be dirty.

I had this problem once. Finally found that the horns had filled with bugs!!! After a good squirting from the water hose the bugs were flushed out and all was well.
