Replacement Dash Gauges?

Hey all. Iím new to the forum, so not sure Iím posting in the proper location.

I need some help finding replacement gauges for my 2000 Holiday Rambler Endeavor. We had an issue with the ignition solenoid and in the process of correcting it so we could get on the road, we unintentionally back fed voltages to the instrument panel, thus knocking out all gauges except one of the air pressure gauges. Iím assuming they all need replaced, but havenít had any luck finding replacements. I know about after market gauges, but I also want to maintain aesthetics of the dash panel.

Thanks in advance!!

When you say "backfed voltage"...do you mean that you reversed positive and ground on the battery? That would let the smoke out of lots of modules. How do you know only the gauges are affected? Not sure on yours, but my gauges are fed from a "computer" so, if the computer was damaged then the gauges might all not operate but the gauges might be fine.

If you mean you applied positive to a positive cable...then that typically wouldn't cause any problem, just energize the circuit when it should not be - but no big deal.

Before spending money on gunshotting parts, I would do a thorough diagnosis. And if that isn't in your wheelhouse, pay someone who has the background.

You can try one of the salvage yards. Like https://colawrvsalvage.com/ or https://usedrvparts.visonerv.com/cgi...ccessories.pl?
they may have the same make/model coach in their inventory.

I doubt you will find new matching gauges. I tried to find one for my Beaver (faria Beede) made the gauges for Beaver, but they were custom made for Beaver so no chance of finding any new stock in anyone's inventory. https://fariabeede.com/2-pages/home.php

You need to get a look at the back of the gauges and see who made them. There should be a name (maybe a part number) then call that company.

Also, consider that you only blew a fuse to those gauges. Maybe its an easy fix and not a complete replacement.

Good luck.

Lorieh03, is your elec panel where the Ignition Solenoid is located the large Circuit Board about 10x15 inches in size? Since this board operates so many other parallel circuits, is it possible that something on the board next to the Ignition S. may have tripped as well? Thus the gages appear to be damaged. Just a thought.
