Customer Question
Hi. I...

Hi. I have a 2014 34b diesel on the freight liner chassis. I just purchase it used from a Winnebago dealer in pa. The steering wheel controls for radio etc sometimes work and sometimes don't. The dealer said as a safety feature they only work when the wheel is pointed straight ahead and won't work if I'm turning. Is that true?

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have power steering? Have you checked the power steering fluid?

It's the radio controls on the steering not the steering itself

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '14 RV?

34b

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

It's at a certified dealer. They tell me it's suppose to work that way
