I have a 2013 Phaeton 40 QBH. My horn neither horn is currently working. I checked the fuse 20 amp and it's fine. Any other ideas around troubleshooting this problem would be helpful. what fuses etc.

What parts do you carry as spares like fuses relays etc.? And then where's the best place to get the small fuses for my motorhome?

Had the same problem with our Breeze 32. Turned out to be a loose electrical connection under the steering wheel cover! Popped it off, reconnected, and presto, instant horn.

An electric horn circuit consists of very few parts

Fuse----Relay contacts----Horn---Ground (Suspect #1: relay 2: Ground)
Ground---Button----Relay coil (This ground is NOT suspect)

Fuses.. TEST with test lamp.. To do this connect clip of test lamp (Link below) to any good ground.. Toch both metal contacts (one on each end of fuse: LIGHT LIGHT = GOOD DARk DARK = no power or bad ground clip connection LIGHT DARK or DARK LIGHT = blown fuse.. Some times a volt meter will show good when the light shows bad.

What spares to carry? I carry an assortment.. Sold in stores like Pep Boys this has several fuses of several sizes.. Now physically blade fuses come in at least 3 sizs.. Mini-Standard-Jumbo (Large) I have a couple of the mini and jumbo (ones I am most likely to need) and the assortment is standard since most (NOT ALL) of my fuses are that size.

Our coach uses three differing sizes of automotive fuses. I bought assortments already in handy plastic storage boxes via Amazon to carry as spares. Also includes a fuse puller as sometimes they can be pesky to extract.
