Air Horn Eureka
Mon Jan 05, 2009 6:59 pm


Ok, here is my "Eureka" moment. Last year my wife gave me a train horn (for the bus) for my birthday. I hooked it up to a button on the dash. I could have hooked it up to the steering wheel horn, but I didn't really want to do that, just in case there were times when the train horn may have been TOO much. However, for those times when I DID want to use it, but had to think quickly, reaching for that button on the dash wasn't working very well. Now, I had previously seen a Prevost that had a factory installed button on the floor that operated the air horn, so that got me thinking. I wanted to hook one up on the floor of my bus, but I wasn't sure where to obtain a button switch that would work. Then, this Christmas, my wife got me some extras for our Golf Cart (that we tow on some trips); extras like turn signals, brake lights, and a HORN KIT. Low and behold, the horn kit included a button to mount on the floor and I said to myself, "why can't I use this same button for the floor of my bus to connect and operate my train horn. So I ordered another one of those buttons and hooked it up in my Eagle and it works PERFECTLY and is SO much easier and quicker to operate. Thought this little tip might help someone else. You can purchase the button at Buggies Unlimited http://www.buggiesunlimited.com/ for about $6 plus shipping. The item # is HRN BTN FLR

I can't wait to hear it! Sounds like something else I would like to add! Is there anyway you can post a short video so we can all enjoy the sound? ;)

Where did you get the horn? How many trumpets are there?

Sorry I don't have a video but it sounds great. This is the horn my wife bought me and the website she ordered it from, but the price has come down (great for you!) My wife paid $149 a year ago for mine. http://www.75chromeshop.com/index.php?m ... cts_id=843
