Air Horns are in! WooHoo

So I finally got the air horns installed in our GT378TS today. What a great sound!

Everything was mounted up front behind the grill so as to be concealed. I used a piece of plate steel to mount the air tank and compressor to. The plate along with the air tank and compressor can be completely removed for service. As I wanted to leave as much room as possible for installing and removing a pair of 6 volt batteries on the drivers side I opted to mount the compressor on the underneath side of the plate.

The compressor gets it's power from the power window circuit which is switched with the ignition. The electric air solenoid was connected with a wire tap to the hot lead for the stock factory horns. However I must say that the factory horns cannot be heard at all over the air horns.

The angle iron seen in the pictures to the right holds the batteries which will be connected to the four 6V batteries I installed under the steps replacing the two 12V batteries that came from the factory.

Next time someone pulls out in front of me they won't be hearing the wimpy factory horns anymore but will instead hear what sounds like a big 18-wheeler barrelling down on them.

Nice looking work, can you hookup the air horn or use it as an alarm system, I bet that would get some attention.

HMMMMM, Nice idea, I like it. I don't see why not. However wouldn't the campground really hate me if I forgot to disarm the system before I opened a door.

Great looking job. Thanks for sharing the pictures. All you need now is a toilet paper shooter to send a roll to whoever you blast that horn at.

I am sure you will forget only one time, and the toilet paper shooter is a nice addition.
