air horn activates on it's own

Our 2011 Berkshire 360QS has started blowing the air horn intermittently on it's own. I turned off both main battery switches in battery compartment, but it will still blow every once in a while. Any one have any ideas? Thanks.

Ours did the same. Was the steering wheel clockspring.

I'd get that taken care of quick before it happens behind a pack of Hells Angels! :-)

Or worse yet, a couple of stirred up gray haired ladies from the neighborhood.

Had the same problem. Switched over to the auto horn to stop it. Problem fixed at Freightliner: Metal shavings shorting the horn in the steering column.
