Interior chirping lioht.

When electrical power is usually energized in our 1997 21ft Bigfoot a small red-light with chirping is activated. The chirping usually becomes less frequent and is then silent. It is located low near the floor attached to the seating compartment. At that point, all systems do work. This year after winter storage, when energized, the chirping remains rapid and will not stop, even after turning off all fused circuits. I did find a single large fuse with yellow jacket in the storage area that stopped the chirping and red light. What is this signaling to me to correct? The controller, I believe, is original and the chirp light has original Bigfoot square head mount screws.

Heeeelp!

possible solutions!

I did find a large amount of discussion of very similiar conditions on this forum and will do more research. Should have checked previous topics and will share findings. All LP tanks were off, but will check for residual in lines. Steve

This type of activity indicates it is time to replace the LP monitor. They die with age by design. It is supposed to be replaced every 5 years or so - you were living on borrowed time. It is a cheap fix and easy too - at least for most folks.

LP or Carbon Monoxide detector depending on what you have in your trailer. Both die after 5-10 years and must be replaced. Some may be about $80 depending on the brand.
