I'll join in on the I did it, too. Not air horns, but the truck alarm. Woke up about 3 in the morning, and couldn't go back to sleep. Went to go outside and look at the stars, and then it happened. I sat down, keys in my pocket, and in the process somehow the panic button on the key fob got pushed. All you know what started breaking loose, horn blaring and lights flashing. Finally got the button pushed to turn everything off after what seemed like a life time. Campground was packed.

Needless to say back inside I quickly went. Didn't go outside for quite a while after that.

My turn!
Pulled into the CG a little after dark in Winnemucca. The DW was inside registering.
The Limo from one of the local casinos pulled up and the seniors started loading, just then Tinker Kat steps on the horn sw.
The driver and the passengers look at us, like they needed to change their underwear. I yelled SORRY out the window and they left in a hurry.
I have not been able to train Tinker to not step on the wheel, when parked. I now make it a practice to disable the air horn when entering towns.

Darling animals stepping on buttons, you gotta love it, the horn I was amused, the electric door lock, I was not.

I like the switch idea, that will be installed before the next trip. No power door locks to worry about in my old battleship.

Found the goblin

Spent some time today working on my hit list of repairs compiled during our trip. After dropping the shroud around the steering column I could see the large coil spring which leads to the horn button. As I gradually lowered the column, the spring moved toward the steel steering shaft and at the bottom of travel the horn blew.

It appeared that the spring was not properly/completely held in place at the bottom, one coil which I believe, should have been in one of the brass retainers was on the inside of it toward the shaft. I took my handy hook tool out and moved it into place on the outside of the retainer. Tested the column again with positive results, no horn blowing when in the lowest position. My guess is it has been that way since new.
