Default Oslo Switch-rocker switch-dashboard

I had a couple of bad switches on my dash. RSP 3A on - off - on
RSP 1A on - off
Pulled them and got the MFG.name Oslo Switch. Nice people, no CC will ship with billing enclosed, better prices than my NAPA shop and American made.

Rob,
I’m not really sure. The switches have continuity and the tranny downshifts but I have no idea if the Jake is actually engaging. If it is them I’m disappointed in it’s performance. I have a friend that pulls his 40’ fifth wheel with a single spindle Volvo OTR truck. When he let’s off the gas your holding on so you don’t hit the windshield. My BB Guru told me if it’s working you’ll hear it. I can hear no or little change with the exception of the Allison down shifting. On the other site P. Masterson said after his new muffler it was considerable quieter and had less performance than with the old muffler. Maybe it’s working and this is all she’ll do, I don’t really know. I'd like to ride in another 42 and see how it reacts. I got my brakes hot in Colorado last year and in Tennessee their real useful as well. In a week of so I’m going to Prevost in Nashville for a little service, I’m going to have them put in my backup DDEC in and see if that changes anything. I also need to be sure it works for when I really need it.

do you have a series 60 with an engine brake?
if so,you will have 2 switchs,an on/off and a hi/med/low switch.
if its turned on and you have the switch on high,you will know it if its working.
on robs 94,we found the cannon plugs had a bad pin,we jumped around the pin and cured the problem.
maybe thats your problem.

the canon plugs are located behind the front panel above the headlites on you coach.
there will be 3-4 of these plugs on the drivers side of the coach,each plug is a coonector for power going to the engine and elsewhere.
maybe 12 pins in each plug.
you unscrew an outside nut to get them apart,then you will see the pins.
sometimes all the pins need is a little electronics grease,sometimes theres a bad or burned pin.
a burned pin can be replaced or bypassed.
its hard to see the bad pins,a good flashlite and maybe a set of young eyes always helps.
Rob and i both looked at his plugs twice before we saw the burned pin.
maybe rob has pics

Kurt the cannon plugs are located in my 94 in the front behind the outside main access panel. I think you have the same panel right? We're talking about the panel just below the windshield. The plugs (about 5 of them) are located on the drivers side. These multi-pin plugs are round plastic type with screw locking rings. Open each up and carefully check each pin and it's female counterpart for discolouration. It will help to use a magnifying glass and a strong light. Randy and I checked these plugs several times before we finally found the culprit. It was only because Bennie at BB insisted that we kept going back to the plugs and finally finding the problem. We jumped the burned pin rather than trying to insert a new one (special tools required). We also squeezed di-electric grease into the plugs. The pins are not very substancial so make sure the male and female parts of the plug are correctly aligned before you re-join them. Hope this helps. I would think this is worth checking out before more major repair attempts

Thanks Guys,

I know exactly where to look. I was just in there today checking on relay 22 C it already been removed.
Do you recall which Cannon Plug it was? I have 5 Cannon Plugs. I’ll break out the blue prints and see if I can’t track it down.. I should check them all and service them with a little di-electric grease while I'm in there anyway.
How did you jump the burnt pins?
I have great eyes NOT, but I do have some great loupes and magnifiers, that I use for work.
Oh by the way I got up on the roof to survey what I’ll need to install the LIL-Stankers, tank exhaust fans, and stopped to check the exhaust stack, the welds broke and the tip is rocking a bit, needs a new muffler. Could be welded, maybe, needs a closer inspection, but I was so P.O. I decided to get off the roof before I fell off.

The blue prints show 7 pin locations
Legend
Wire < Cannon Plug Location & Pin # < Wire Size & Color - Description

119 < ATEC A-9 < 18ga YELLOW - Engine brake on-off on-off-on switch
132A < ATEC B-19 < 18ga WHITE - #30 on two C,Y relays to Cannon Plug
583 < ENG B-22 < 18ga. LT. BLUE/BLACK - #87A on C,Y relays
979 < ENG B-21 < 18ga WHITE -
231 < ATEC B-13 < 18ga. Yellow - #86 on Ignition Relay, also ties into a Neutral Safety Relay
768 < CHAS B-20 < 14ga. PURPLE - Neutral Safety Relay
714 < CHAS B-4 < 14ga. PURPLE - Neutral Safety Relay
It looks like we’ll have to check 4 different plugs.
Better check them all.

ATEC- A
ATEC- B
ENG.- B
CHAS - B

Looks straight forwards enough.
