No directionalís or wipers -Need Help

Now at Alliance Coach in Wildwood FL. Problem, no directional's/wipers. They have diagnosed the problem to a computer board that controls them on the steering wheel. (they switched it with another MH, and all works) There are zero boards available.They have sent the board to M & M repairs in Ohio. On Monday, told that next Monday they will check it. They may/may not be able to repair. So here we sit watching other coaches come in and out. There must be another solution to this. Any comments, as always, are appreciated.

Is it the multiplex board (Chassis Control Module) that is bad? See if this thread is covering the same issue: http://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/smar...lp-429296.html
Good luck

If you can get the part number I'd start searching the internet yourself and contacting salvage yards as a last resort. Dealerships will not do this as they want to charge for the repair and/or new parts.

Just an update. There is another post on this also. Board sent to M & M in Ohio. Returned to Alliance and installed. All working. Next morn went to leave, hooked up toad. Same same. The two tech's spent the day (talking with Chris? at M & M). M & M place to go for computer board problems!! Later that day, all seemed to be good. Next morning, left with all working. Now at Hilton Head. Three weeks at Alliance?? Great tech's and they work hard and they want to service the client. Above them, scenic of urgency??

Part of that is true but it's also a cover your rear situation. If they found a used part and installed it and it burnt out in a week it would make for one ugly situation. Worse yet, installed used part and it's dead on arrival. Someone needs to pay the tech for their time.
If however the customer supplies the part knowing and acknowledging to the facility it's used, they understand no warranty, then the facility is off the hook as far as any kind of warranty then they shouldn't have a problem with maybe bumping up the labor a bit and instilling the used part. You bump up the labor a bit to cover the profit you're losing on the sale of the part. It's an option I'd rarely offer as I hated installing used parts but there are times like this where there isn't a good alternative.

It's just another way to look at why a place might not want to go with used.

BTW I understand the problem as I wanted to upgrade my Thunderbird to LEDs only to find out I couldn't since it doesn't have a separate flasher. It's part of something else and being a '95 I always worry that's one of the things that is going to fail and be a real pain to try and locate or fabricate.

On a 2013 I would think they'd use more off the shelf stuff that's already proven tech rather than spend time and money redesigning something like a turn signal flasher circuit and windshield wiper circuit and then combining them.

My suggestion was in the event that M&M couldn't fix the old one and new one couldn't be sourced.

I would only use a salvaged part as a last ditch solution if my back was against the wall.
