Kongsburg Chassis Control Multiplexing


Recommended Posts

If anyone here is having issues or knows of anyone having issues with their 08, 09, 10 Monacos with the Kongsburg Chassis Control Multiplexing system please reach out to me. You can contact me on here, or via email at BWickett1617@yahoo.com.

I am working on a permanant fix. I don't have a ton of details yet so this is more of a who needs it so to speak.

Thanks,

Brett

On BEHALF of the vast array of Staff we have, Monacoers HEARTILY endorses this effort.  Keep us updated from time to time and if a new thread pops up, will make sure this topic gets posted there.

THANKS & Good Luck.

Thanks Tom, I don't know the outcome I will find just yet but there will be an outcome. If this works out it will not be just a good idea type fix as it could get expensive. BUT for those like me with a completely dead CCM system it could be the fix we need. I don't want to discuss any of the deatails yet a I do not have anything in stone. I am not on a goose chase however...lol

I took a lightening strike in April which took out both of my CCM's, my ECU and at least one dash switch module which left all dash switches dead. At the end of the day this has been a very long process born out of need as all I have is a very expensive Park Model left of my 09 Signature.

I've had a couple problems that I suspect are related to the chassis multiplex system.  Keep me in the loop on what you determine.  Thanks for letting us know.

I’ve having several multiplex related issues on my 09 Dynasty.   How do I determine if I have the Kongsburg system.  My coach has a build date of June 08.  
Thanks!

Bob, you have a Kongsberg chassis multiplex system.  To confirm look in the FRB.  You'll see a single large circuit board and a CCM module below it.  A conventional chassis system will have over a dozen small circuit boards and a SmartWheel module in the FRB.

Yes, that is what I have.  It's become a source of significant frustration for me as well.

You have a second CCM in the overhead of the first bay. What type of issues are you having?

Brett, my primary issues are with the Eaton switches in the cockpit of the coach.  I've lost the overhead cockpit lights, porch light, door handle lights, stepwell lights, docking lights, and bay lights.  The overhead fan switch is not working.  I've also lost power to the video display for the cameras, and the radio circuit.  My high beam light is on all the time, the right headlight is working intermittently, and the instruments lights are non-functioning.  Several switch's still function, step cover, gen start, batt jump, windshield shade, power window. 

Frank McElroy has been very helpful, trying to trouble shoot my issues. I've pulled all the master switches and the slaves and worked the connections, without positive results. 

I have located and checked the fuses in the second CCM.  I found one 30 Amp fuse blown, #12, labeled Trailer Bat. Replaced fuse, repowered coach, fuse did not blow.  No effect on the other dash, cockpit power issues.  

Very interested in what you're working on, so sorry for your situation, these are great coaches, sad that we have this Achilles heel. 

Please keep me in the loop, be glad to help as needed.

Post #9 has a source for the CADET software for the Kongsberg system.  

CADET Software For Monaco Multiplex Chassis - iRV2 Forums

That source does not work any longer There are no CADET softwares out there to be gotten any longer.

Very odd on yours as the way the dash switch pods are interconnected if one pod goes out it takes the remainder of the others out. it's like the old Christmastree lights. So for you to have some working and some not is rather rare. Your two masters are the pod with the gen start and the pod that controls the mirrors. Unfortnately there are no switch pods that will work with the CCM's we have and no CCM's that will work with our coaches or our switch pods. It is kind of an all or nothing fix. I have been in contact with MM several times and they are not close to repairs or replacements yet per their words. I have turned the page on them and am working in a completely different direction, probably will not be cheap, but when you are sitting like I am with a coach that does not work from the floor down I am out of options really. I can't sell my coach, can't drive it, can't trade it. Fortunately the house side all works great. Again, I am NOT working on a fix for a broken component as there are none. I am working on a permanant repair for a completely broken coach, or a coach you don't want to mess with the Kongsburg system in. Hopefully I will know more in the next week or so. Thanksgiving put a halt to things. 

BTW, all power has to be removed from the coach before you unplug or plug in any of the switch pods or you take a very good change in buring something out. The switch pods are extreemely fragile in the system. I have both of my CCM's and all of my switch pods boxed up sitting in the floor as they just returned from an Electronics shop deemed unrepairable.
