What kind of horns you have?

I have a 1998 Fleetwood Pace Arrow. The horn is the sorriest sounding horn I have ever heard. What kind do you have and has anyone changed to air horns?

My rig has air horns and they have come in handy a few times to bring daydreamers back to reality.

I have a set of Grover air horns and an on board Thomas compressor and a 2 gallon tank and I can switch between the standard sparrow fart truck horns and the Grovers. I wouldn't drive my truck and 5er without them. The compressor is also nice to have too. I can air up rafts, air beds, and tires to 120 psi. When I installed the air system and horns I installed a quick connect coupling and a gauge to the tank under the passenger step rails. I can see how much pressure I have at a glance and can plug in a coiled hose to air up anything I need.

My 2012 Winne came with a switch on the dash that if turned on makes the horn activated from the steering wheel sound like an air horn. Iv'e never looked but I think it is still electric rather than air. Guess I will check that out.

LOL most are just car horns, Pretty Wimpy.

I just added Hadley Bully Horns complete with compressor and storage tank, solenoid activated by original horn wires.

Hilarious to see people jump out of they're skin when I hit them.

Very Effective.

I had horns like Hellboy, but I ground them down & they haven't grown back.

I have one of these on my Jeep - easily replaced the stock horn - much louder and gets attention. Putting one on the MH is on my to-do list.

.......That's really odd, since my Southwind has two (2) horn's from the factory, Hi note/Lo note, such as a car normally has. I have never had any issue's with no one not hearing them when like some one else said,WAKE THE DEAD!!!!!!!
Good luck/Travel safe.

I'm curious...there is certainly a lot of horn talk on this site....where do you all drive you have to depend on your horn so much? In everything I drive...and have driven since a kid...I've used the horn to say Hi or Bye FAR more than ever needing then on the road....justa wondering
