Ok, I can tell you the steering wheel doesn't appear to be original. It looks newer than the coach. I also know a bunch of work was done on it previously to the last PO.
Maybe something in there doesn't exactly line up with the flasher switch?
Beats the excrement out of me?

As far as what wiring we have for the toad: We have done nothing to the coach in that respect. We plan on using the 7 pin connection it has on the back. I have bought wires with 7 pin connections to go with it to the Toad, but we haven't hooked up or used any of it yet.

If I was pushing on the button and moving the wheel, I could feel when it would line up and the button could be depressed, almost like a tumbler in a lock.

So based on this, I am thinking we have a grumpy 4 way switch.
Dana, want some help tomorrow?

LOL, thanks Chris. The hubby is at work today, so I am trying to fix this on my own. I will have him take a look when he gets home and see what he can come up with. If we are still scratching our heads, I'll let ya know. Thanks again.

Buzz out that rear connector, when wiring up the toad,
BB did not use a standard pin lay-out

I have a tone generator and an inductive amp if you need to trace wires.

Thanks Chris, we broke out the trusty Blue Box and came across the wiring diagram for the turn indicators. I think we have a bad solenoid for the passenger side. We will switch it out and see where we are....after lunch.

We also came across the wiring diagram for the 7 pin connector. We will still buzz it out and see if it's accurate, when we get to that project.
