Horn problem

The horn stopped working on my 2011 Itasca Reyo. Fuse is OK, so the problem has to be the horn switch, the wiring, or the horn itself. The OEM horn on the Reyo is possibly the wimpiest horn in the universe, so I've been thinking of replacing it anyway (maybe with a Wolo Big Bad Max or similar). I would like to start with the horn itself, but the problem is access. I can see it right behind the grill, but there's no straightforward way to get to it. Don't see any way to get to it from above or below, and it looks like the whole fiberglass Itasca front wrap-around grill assembly might have to come off.....unless the horn can be accessed by removing the right front headlight housing assembly, which also may not be possible without removing the front grill assembly. Does anyone out there have any experience in accessing a Reyo (or Winnebago Via) horn? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Forget about it.

Look at the wiring, follow it back to where you can get access to it and cut it. Mount your new horn where you want and splice a wire to the cut wire. Wala new horn.

Thank you. Your recommendation is probably the best option....as long as I can find the right wires (hope my windshield wipers don't come on when I honk). Sure wish I could mount the new horn in front of the radiator & AC condenser rather than somewhere in the engine compartment, but, again, no access. Thanks much for the advice.

This video is a bit dragged out, but seems to be exactly what you want to accomplish.

My bus came with a wimpy horn too. In addition to the large set of air horns, I replaced the stock (puny) beep-beep horns with a set of used Cadillac horns. Four notes at once give the desired and attention demanding sound.

Thanks very much for the idea and for the video link. I may very well give that a try......those horns sound like what I'd like. Thanks again.
