I really don't mean to hi-jack this thread, but we ARE speaking about loud horns.

I RV-tow and daily-drive a 2 seat Miata convertible. After a nearly disasterous event, I put some REALLY LOUD horns on my Miata.

Now, I really need to get some of those train horns for the RV.

To see and hear them, Click on this link and be sure to watch the video at the end. Loud Horns

Need to record and post link to the "music" for all to hear. At one time had an old air horn from an old train, wish I still had that, what a sound.

After you mount them on the roof, you better check your overall height. Those look huge!

I have been wanting to put air horns on my MH. The horn on it now are about as loud as on my toad! I was thinking about the horns from a fire truck. Are these train horns louder than a fire truck horn?

Will she be giving you the button that makes 'em go "toot" next Christmas, or did she already superglue it to her side of the cockpit?

Have them on two semi trucks and they are loud. We ran a separate half inch air line from a air tank to a air relay value. Then the quarter inch air line for the stock air horn trips the relay and you get the full half inch air supply to the horns. You can use the electric value that comes with the horns to trip the relay value also and get the same effect. You have to buy the half in air relay value separately though from a good auto supply store. It takes about 2 hours a truck for two guys to hook all this up right with all air lines in protective plastic conduct and everything secured with nylon tie straps. I would put some of these on my motor home but I have no air and these things take a bunch of air. This is just another reason why I need a DP. They will take a semi trucks air pressure from 120 to 80 psi in about 5 seconds. We have ours on the rear of the head racks pointed towards the curb side.

And apply your brakes due to low air pressure!!!!!!

Your spring brake doesn't pop till about 40# pressure,but your low air warning will come on at 60#.
I'm not sure if I'd be blowing the horn at the same time I was standing on the air brakes though.

Pardon me for bringing this up, but:

Isn't the time you need to use your horn usually the same as the time you need to use your brakes??????
