I have a 2012 Itasca Ellispe with a Freightliner chassis when I hit a bump in the road my cruise control and windshield wipers shut off.
Both these switches are mounted in the steering wheel any idea where this loose connection may be.
Thanks for your help

Cruise and wipers wouldn't have much in common. I'm not a WBGO owner, but I have heard that W is very good about providing electrical diagrams. I would contact them for help. With a schematic and their guidance, you should be able to identify the common point quickly.

Below is a link to the Winnebago wiring diagrams that JFXG mentioned. There are three 2012 Itasca Ellipse models listed.

If it involves the steering wheel you may need a Freightliner chassis wiring diagram, though.

Have you verified if fuses are good? Could be a loose ground.
