Default wonky gauges

I am getting ready for our first real trip south and have a concern with my instruments, The speedo is working intermittently ,and the tach did not work for a half hour drive then started working fine. I would imagine that both work electronically and are not cable driven . Maybe they will smarten up when I get out of this cold weather ! Don

Our speedo used to do the same thing. After sitting for a while it would not work for 15-40 miles then the needle would peg at max for a while then it settled down & worked ok. I was always amazed that the odometer stayed accurate on a trip. We finally had Newell put in new sending unit & new speedo. Was great to drive out of Miami in a "0" mile coach!!!

There are many dash issues posted pertaining to bad grounds. I would check and make sure that your dash grounds are all well connected.
