Where is the warning buzzer on Tour?

I need to disable the warning "jacks down" buzzer. I can't stand the noise and for those that want to warn me please believe I would rather drive off and cause several thousands of $$ in damage before listening one more minute to that tortuous screeching. Thanks for any help in locating that Japanese designed irritant(reminds me of a Panasonic Fax machine that beeped every 5 seconds when you were out of paper). As if the two RED lights staring you in the face weren't enough.

That was good for a giggle! I could not take mine either so I placed electrical tape over the piezo sounder. Mine was located right under the driver side dash near the steering column.

Mine is under the dash top cover and is adjustable. I would suggest you call Winnebago Service as they are great about answering questions and have been very helpful to me.

Couldn't stand mine either, so I added a circuit that would disable the buzzer until the ignition switch was cycled. That way I had the best of both worlds. The buzzer was mounted on the firewall to the left of the steering column. Adding tape over the buzzer is a much easier fix, however.

I wish I had your problem. My alarm stays on when the jacks come up. I added a toggle switch to the power lead on the controller. Now as soon as the jacks are up I just toggle the power and the alarm stops. So, you should be able to do the same thing to the line going to the alarm. The easiest way would be to find the alarm under the dash and either add the toggle, or just disconnect the wire to it and tape the end up.

Be very, very careful if you disable it. A distraction in your routine could be costly.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Hummm, I solved the problem by turning the ignition switch to Accessory. That operates jacks up or down and no irritating buzzer.
