Warning Lights

We recently took a short trip, first day 300 miles spent the night next morning started motorhome (2001 Airstream) low water, abs, check engine and check trans lights did not go off and fuel gauge not working. Turned engine off and checked fuses none were blown, lights went out. Stayed several nights at next location left there and all worked well, next time lights would not go out, stopped to refuel and all went well. Now when I turn the key on none of the lights come on and the fuel gauge still not working.
Can anyone offer any advice or suggestions
Thank You

Sounds like a 12v chassis issue. My recommendation is to contact the manufacturer of your chassis and pose the question to them.

This unit, is a Cat diesel, and is on a Freightliner Chassis.

Did you solve your problem?

It sounds like maybe a loose ground or poor connection at a harness plug? Could be right at the dash display connection.

You may need to loose weight.. (Ok that is not exactly a joke)

Go to the local hardware or auto parts or other store that does this (Yes Wal-Mart can make a Workhorse igintion Key) and hand the key buy your ignition key, Say "Spare key please" and use this spare.. BY ITSELF, in the ignition, Do not hang other keys from it.

One of my favorite jokes about driving and living in a class A is to say "Only one problem with these class A's" and when the other party says "What's that?" I hold up my key ring and say "They all fit".

Which, by the way, they do.

It is a big ring.

The weight of all those keys can cause strange wear patterns on the ignition cylinder and in some cases the switch itself. Causing the switch to not fully return to "RUN" and thus causing the symptoms you cite.
Home is where I park it!
