Hans Hi, not sure what your looking for but we will give a go. If you are looking for a cable which is similar to your cable TV wire you may not find one on the 89-90 coach you have. Most new MH's have them wired into their electric bays now. If your looking for a plus + battery wire to operate a GPS system trace the battery wire for your radio to its fuse block, maybe under the dash near your steering wheel a small fuse block. You should fine a spare fuse position on the block maybe for an item that isn't wired for your coach or if the GPS doesn't draw many amp's you could double it up with your radio. If not there than check the firewall under your hood opening, it should be a small block also. Be CAREFUL there is a large fuse block with large AMP fuses thats for your chassis fuses STAY out of that one. Take a look and let us know what you find. Did you get a BATTERY CHARGER for your house batteries like I suggested?

Hans....I installed a Pioneer GPS in my DP. There was no pulse wire available for mine. I called Pioneer and they told it wasn't needed. it was explained that on my systems it was primarily used to guess the distance the coach had travelled when it went through a tunnel or other obstruction that blocked the antenna. Call the company that made it.

Hello friens ...problem solved

On the gearbox at the and of the cable from the speedometer you see 2 wires coming out-1 grey and 1 bleu the are strangeld together and the go over the engine into the dash

the GREY wire is the pulswire for a navigation system that needs a puls wire as we called it

you have another name i think like speedometer signal

so you se even on my 1989 Rv there is allready such a connection

I hope that i made it clear what it is and that other RV ers can benefit from my explanation

Thanks everybody for your help

Greatings from Belgium
Hans

Hmmm. I'm still in the dark. Have owned 4 different GPS units and never needed a "puls" wire or anything in any way related to a speedometer. Just the GPS with its built-in or an external antrenna to track the GPS satelites and plain old 12 VDC for power. Or could it be that the "GPS" here isn't a satelite navigation system?

It is used for "dead reckoning" on some of the newer model GPS units. I have the Garmin 7500 unit with 7" screen. Supposed to keep you on track when sat signal is blocked...
