it really helps to know what motorhome model year etcc

sounds like the ignition switch is at the bottom of cable
the cable operated by the key, turms on the switch
sounds like the switch has shorted out , using the cable for ground


The ignition switch is on top of the column where they normally are...using a steel rod actuator. There is something else near the bottom of the column that is heating up.

All running lights, backup lights are working...

It is a 1998 Fleetwood Flaire, Chevy P30 Chassis

That braided steel cable is like a brake cable on a bike...it is not a conduit for wiring...it is just the cable to the shaft on this switch or whatever it is that is lifted and lowered by turning the ignition. The "switch" itself is about the size of a large old school turn signal flasher. It has a two wire harness connected to it.


THAT SOUNDS like a cable for the shift linkage for the transmission
if so that should only move when the gear selector is moved, not when the key is turned

so whAT ? piece is getting hot, a few pictures would help
