I'm fairly certain that you have a VIP PC-series. If your steering wheel looks like THIS
, then it's a PC. The PC-series were used from the late 90s to the mid-2000s.
The V4-series came out in late 2005 and began being used on 2006 motorhomes; they looked like THIS
. I don't believe you will have a V4-series but rather a PC-series.
I've attached a troubleshooting guide for the PC below. It will briefly mention the clock-spring. Like others have said, you'll find quite a few threads on the clock-spring and general VIP troubleshooting if you do a search on this forum.
Be sure you have a multimeter and a 12v test light to perform the troubleshooting exercises.
