So does this just hook into the present horn? I've heard some questions about the volts involved with the MB horn system possibly shutting down the vehicle? Just inquiring before I look into purchasing one? I would like something that can be heard if needed.

Hope you like the effort and if you or anyone else gets inspired by this relatively easy install,
then please let me know! Command the road when you use your horn and
not the ducks I say...PB

Thank you "Very Much!" I rarely use my horn, but when I did awhile back I was very "Shocked at the Sound!" I posted "One Wimpy Horn" (http://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/f191/one-wimpy-horn-51763.html) on this blog. With the WOLO supplied relay and the 20 Amp fuse I believe their will be no electrical issues. Thanks Again.

I know what you mean about rarely using the horn, it can cause some people to go Postal on you. But when you need a horn it'd be nice to have one that can be heard.

Henry-
I have used the horn off and on without holding my breath (re going into limp mode or driving the computer nuts?). As long as you DO integrate the
supplied relay AND a 20-amp fuse in-line you should not have any problems. I DO
use the original MB horn button (steering wheel location) for this set-up w/o
problem other than trying to get that deeply embedded "button" to activate
the Wolo. You really have to push it hard, as you know (use your palm!) to activate the
horn but this is not a Wolo issue...is another part of the weak chain in the
MB horn "system"? Hopefully they will correct this some day too? Also installed a Klaxon() on the other side for giggles using the wireless Wolo
transmitter and receiver setup (eBay = Wolo100). Feel free to ask any
questions down the pike if you install. Cheers...PB

Can You Post or Forward Your Notes on Memory Foam

Give us a shout out if you need more info when we return. Solera Rookie

solera rookie,

You seem to have found a good supplier for the memory foam topper and fitted sheets.

If you posted information, can you point me to it? If not can you post or PM me with the info?

Thanks,
Pete Junger

2016 Forester MBS 2401R modifications (partial list)

Added Sumo Springs SSF-106-40 (front) and SSR-338-47 (rear). Amazing difference in side-to-side stability, even though we already had the factory Hellwig sway bar. I had installed these on my previous Class B Winnebago Era model 170C and knew I needed them on the MBS.

Also, another idea I brought forward from the Era ... I added this Rubbermaid Fasttrack rail (purchase hooks and accessories online, or at either Lowes or Home Depot). Be careful when locating the metal square tubing which this is attached to (remove the push-light housings on each side to find it and then draw a straight line between the two sides), and when using self-tapping screws since part of the wiring for the Schwintek rear slideout is routed through this tubing. But once installed, makes a great setup for hanging cords and hoses, and is easily reconfigurable.

First Mod - I installed a Progressive Electronics hard wired surge/line conditioner in the "end table" next to the rear bed. It is where the shore power cord enters the coach first. I was pleased to find plenty of room for it on the floor of the compartment when I removed the access panel. A word of caution, when sliding it under the water supply lines the plastic nipple on the backside of the water input valve broke in half. I am actually glad this happened as it is a very weak point being the main supply water line location. I replaced with a $3 brass fitting with integrated nipple to avoid problems in the future. I put the electronic status display on the front of the access panel. I was going to route the wire to the control panel location over the fridge but glad I didn't, it puts out a little too much red light. The light is not visible now while in the bed but is easily viewed when needed.

I secured my range cover with a couple of bungee cords and used pipe foam to secure the microwave plate.
