Monaco Step Slide

I have a 2004 Monaco Diplomat, the step slide will not move - it will make a light clunking noise while cycling the switch. The slide moves freely but the motor just clunks. Can't see how one has access the equipment to fix the problem. Any ideas on how to repair?

I also have a second problem, the air horn occasionally sounds off while using the turning signal. The horn blew until all the air was exhausted. After waiting for 30 min, all was normal. What is the likely cause of this problem?
I have removed a horn fuse to temporarily eliminate the problem.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

on cars I have seen the horn button flex in and blow the horn while driving down the road. to fix them I've removed the horn button and bent it back straight.

We are glad to have you join us. I konw you will enjoy our website and forums. We look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
I have seen circuits have a bad ground and will seek another component's circuit to find a path to ground. Do you have a smart heel? If so, the problem is probably in the smart wheel's control board. I think is is in the compartment under the driver. Let us know what you find. Thank you

Thanks for your response, I don't believe our unit has a smart wheel. The cruise controls for example, are located on a panel next to the dash. If I had to guess, I would think there is a short in the steering column - something I know nothing about.

there most likely is a switch in the door that makes contact to get current to the motor. The one in the frame might have two male contacts. Try taking a piece of sandpaper and cleaning them and the ones in the door itself. May be the problem. Good luck

safe travels

Thanks Butch for your suggestion, but I think you are referring to the entry steps. My issue is with the step slide that covers the step well. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

You'll probably get better and more answers if asked in the "Monaco" area below...

You might want to go to the Monaco owners forum here a IRV2 and ask other Monaco owners if they have experienced the same problem.
Welcome you found a great resource of knowledge.
