Generally there is a problem with ground. Check the connections with a VOM and see if you have both ground and positive when tooting.

I will check it. This is the big horns on a 34T model.

Are they air or electric. Thanks

I think you may have air horns. I had them on my 86, I suspect yours are similar.

Since there is no other air system on the coach, Barth used a small vacuum driven air compressor, a small air tank and a solenoid valve to make em go. Somewhat elaborate, the compressor and small tank are under the hood. The compressors are prone to failure and are no longer made.

OTOH, the horns may just be plugged up. I had to clear hornets' nests out of them now and them. Keep them covered between runs.

Some discussion here:

I installed a central 12v compressor under the couch in my 86. I had air for tires or air bags when needed, and air supply for the horns.

Two reasons possible that I can think of for clicking. The air will be controlled via a solenoid to the horn. I would be surprised if the solenoid were up there but it could be in the butt of the horn, too long ago since I had one apart. The other is the metal diaphragm could be flexing but not enough air volume/pressure to make it do its noisy thing. Seems like time to do an R and R.
There may be other possibilities, have you looked at the manufacturers site? If they aren't still in business find a comparable looking horn and see if it has anything helpful.
Good luck, Tim

You need to delete the pic and check the procedure for posting . Below the horns it looks like a latch for the controls. Is that correct, if so is there a solenoid and pump ? If so you probably hear the solenoid and the pump maybe the problem .
