Camera Monitor Issue

while doing my Pre trip check last night i have an odd issue with my monitor. I cannot get the monitor to come on at all, all fuses and connections have been checked. It was on then lost its power for no reason and at same instance the air horn switch right next to it, the green light (on indicator) on that went out, yet the switch to the air horns work ok, just no idiot light will come on. any suggetsions?

Power?...are you sure?

You state fuses and connections are OK. Did you measure them with a voltmeter?

No meter? GET ONE for the MH they are cheap.

Since the horn works when you activate the switch but the lights in the switches do not work I suspect you have a BUSS problem.

THe switch is just a controlled broken wire, the wire goes through the switch and nothing much exciting there.

The lights however need a voltage potential to operate, positive 12 volts and a ground or return path.

Depending on how the MH was built and the monitor installed, you could have a buss tye install where a lot of wires are connected to a common point, then this point is connected to the source.

Common buss is ground, you have either a large terminal or a single wire daisy chained across the back of everything finally connecting to chassis somewhere.

Use your voltmeter and measure the voltage AT the monitor.

It should have both red and black wires, use shirt pins to puncture the wire, be carefull that they are not too close to short out.

Measure here, there should be 12 volts across them, if not, then measure each to ground.

If you have 12 volts on both, then the ground is not connected, 0 volts then the hot is not connected.

Take your time, and write notes and make a drawing as you go, it helps later when something else gets funny.

Found the issue. after spending some time on the phone with Winnebago customer assistance we narrowed the problem. behind the freightliner fuse panel, there was one connector that was not making a good connection into the panel. cleaned it off and refit, all works.
