Re: Horn on steering column not working, but works triggering siren functions

They definitely disconnected the horn for the siren. It happened with my Crown vic. I found a wire under my steering wheel that was cut in half for the siren. It was a simple as reconnecting it. I am sure the ambo is likely the same... just gotta find the wire It was working not too long ago and th...

I’ll check it. Thanks.

Horn on steering column not working, but works triggering siren functions

I have 1995 Chevy 3500hd Turbo diesel with a Horton Box. I can’t figure out why my stock horn button on the steering column doesn’t work, but when I switch it to siren mode, I can trigger the siren functions from the horn button on the steering column. I’ve disconnected the factory horns and tested ...

Re: Shore power

I finally got the chance to see if that exterior outlet also charges the two batteries and it does. That’s an awesome feature. I was wondering, can you have the ambulance idling or running (driving around) while the exterior outlet has shore or generator power? Thanks for all the advice. Sent from m...

Re: Refrigerator and water tank

Wow, those are some big things! They look about the same size as things my buddy installed in his rehabbed 40 foot Class A motor home last summer. Just a thought, if you put appliances made for a 40-foot vehicle into a 20-foot vehicle, you might start running out of space pretty fast... Doesn't loo...

Re: Shore power

Yes.. let he batteries sit off for 30 min or so . Place your meter on the battery, is should show 12 ish volts. let your meter stabilize then plug in the shore power and you should see a voltage increase. as for the circuit board try to re solder the points to that resistor. If that doesn't work re...

Refrigerator and water tank

1995 Horton Box. Picked up a dometic RM-2652 refrigerator/freezer and a 39 gallon water tank (46” long x 18.75” deep x 10.5” high) with pump for $135. Has anyone put any of these in their ambulance? I’m trying to get an idea on where to put them. I’m in the process of also getting the oven/cooktop w...

Re: Shore power

When you get your inverter get one with a pass thru circuit. Typical VANNER sine wave. You can remove all that messy wiring.. The shoreline feeds the AC power side of the inverter/charger. When the inverter looses AC shore line then it jump over to the DC to AC converter. All of your circuits will ...
