In September we bought a 2014 Montana High Country one owner 5th wheel.
While plugged into shore power for about a day and a half, I can hear a repeating beeping tone that occurs about 2 times a second (steady) on the outside of the coach. It seems to be coming from the front compartments. I immediately unplugged shore power and the tone not only stopped but it went down in pitch too? My first thought was my inverter. I contacted the manufacturer and they assured me their equipment is not designed to produce any audible signal(s).
While I corresponded with manufacturer, I left the unit without shore power. I decided to plug in again and have not heard any beeps whatsoever. This is over duration of 12 hours.
I have eliminated the propane and CO2 sniffers. Iím looking for suggestions on what piece of equipment could have been 0the source of the beeping sound.

Thank you!

Just so you don't think you were ignored here, can't answer/help on the beep.

It is an inverter (12volt to 120volt) or a converter (120volt to 12volt, to charge the battery)?

How did you eliminate the detectors as a source?

Have you checked the actual condition of the battery(s)? Load-test? Might be replacement time...

Let us know if you find an answer.

Here ya go!

Q It is an inverter (12volt to 120volt) or a converter (120volt to 12volt, to charge the battery)?
A Converter

Q How did you eliminate the detectors as a source? CO2 new battery, tests great.
A Propane sniffer...status light green, no propane smell in rig, gas appliances run fine.

Q Have you checked the actual condition of the battery(s)? Load-test? Might be replacement time..
A both 12v batteries are new installed by selling dealer in September.

Thanks.

Leaves me at a loss as to where the beep came from. Appears to have corrected itself.
I can't think of any other possible source that you haven't gotten to already.
If it happens again--suggest you get in basement and try to pin down where it is coming from...open all compartments and check while it is beeping?
I don't have a Montana, so don't know the arrangements of the compartments and what could be located where. Hope you figure it out.
