Question Air horn troubleshooting

I have a 2009 Fleetwood Discovery 40x diesel pusher. Our horn quit working and I have confirmed the fuse and relay are both good. Not getting power to the solenoid though and my assumption would be the switch on the steering column. Didn't want to tear apart the steering wheel just yet. Any ideas? Thank you.

would you have tilt steering by chance? If so look where the wire.s run up the column they might be broken .

If you can access the connection, it would be easy to test if the switch is the problem or something else. Either a multimeter or just a jumper wire will show if current is passing the switch. You say the solenoid isn't getting power, is it powered directly from the horn button or through a relay? Often the horn button only triggers a relay to pass on the greater current needed by the solenoid (air horn) or the electric horns themselves.

If you are sure that solenoid is not getting power. Check the ground wire connections,
