Air horn

I have a 2007 tourmaster. The air horns stop working. The manufacturer of the horn thinks is the celenoid.
Does anyone know where it is located on the coach
Thanks
Mike

Solenoid - a device that turns electrical energy into mechanical force. Your solenoid likely uses electrical power from your horn button to pull open an air valve that allows pressurized air from your storage tank to travel to the horn. Soooo....get underneath your rig and find the air line that goes towards your air horn, or maybe the driver's side of your dash, maybe inside under your gauges or outside on the forward bulkhead. I'm guessing the solenoid will have air lines about the size of a pencil coming in and out, and electrical power from your horn button and a ground. I bet it's about the size of a coffee mug or juice glass. Go look for it. It's like playing dungeons and draggons, you'll likely find a whole bunch of stuff you never even wondered about.....

They're not very expensive so if you aren't a DIY'er, it might be better to just buy new. Here's what they tend to look like: Air Horn

On the older Tourmaster's, they were in the compartment in front of the drivers side front wheel well. You will see two wires and two 1/4 inch air lines going to it.

I've replaced my Hadley solenoid twice. They tend to corrode and go bad.

You can disassemble it and clean it out which is what I did twice and then bought a new one...about $50.

I think it's important to exercise them so after I replaced it I would always blow the air horns when I was out on the freeway and not in a place that would scare people or drivers.

As TonyMac said there are two air lines attached to it, one that goes to the air horns. Remove that one while working on it....mine stuck open while I was working on it at 9pm and the neighbors came running, thinking there was an emergency.

Always great fun around my place...

Check your voltage at the solenoid valve first. I had the same problem. As it turned out the wire connectors had some corrosion making for a poor connection. I changed out the butt connectors at the solenoid and it solved the problem.
