Winnebego Journey with CAT 330 engine tach problems

Last fall I was preparing my unit for winter storage and traveled to get some fuel. While returning I had to go through a rough construction area when after a bump the tach and speedometer went to zero and the transmission locked in second gear with no display. I knew it was in second by the sound of the engine and the speed through the construction zone. I found a safe spot to park it and stopped. The trans was still in gear. I stopped the engine and was unable to restart it or get it to shift out of gear. I had it towed to the local freightliner service dept. They found a bad transmission controller and the chassis batteries to be bad. $4200 later I got it back. I've had in storage since and today after replacing the house batteries I have no tach or speedometer. Could it just be a loose connection or something worse. Could someone explain what drives the tach and speedometer? There are no check engine lights or alarms. The engine starts and runs well and the transmission shifts and goes into gear properly. One other note, for some time now the rear air pressure gauge is erratic. However, after a few miles it settles out and displays normally.
