MH dash flashes?

I have a 2008 Newmar Dutchstar MH,model 4320 with a Cummins 8.9l engine on a Sparton chassis.Intermittently upon turning the key on for start up,the back lites on the dash,the dash stereo,+ the lites behind transmission pad,all start flashing+ contiue to flash until the MH is put in gear.This has been going on for sometime now+ I have had it to the warranty shop 2 or 3 times+ they haven't been able to solve the problem+ claim that Sparton hasn't been able to give them a solution either.
Has anyone had a similar problem+ if so what was the fix??
Thanks
Bruce

Who ever has worked on problem have they ever pulled the flasher off fuse board to see if flashing stops?
Your service manual for chassis should have fuse panel layout.
Have you ever called Spartan for assistance?
I can move your question if you want to Newmar forum may get quicker responses.

Thanks 007.I picked the MH up today,after talking to Sparton,they are at a loss for a solution,unless I can get it to the warranty shop,with the lites flashing.It was there for over a week + of course they couldn't get the problem to happen.The Newmar dealer feels it maybe a ground some where that causes this problem intermittently+ I was told the same by him.
So if anyone has any ideas for solving this problem,your thoughts would be much aoppreciated.
Thanks Bruce H.

Not sure how much maintenance you can do but if you take cover off steering column and check ignition switch for any loose wiring on switch or crossed leads might clear your problem.
If you put condition in play as you are checking flashing may stop as your working around wiring.
One other thing to check is the ignition wiring harness that may go over the steering column metal bend could have a burr thats cutting into a wire. As you move steering wheel for adjustment can cause a problem here.
Place a spaghetti wrap around wires to prevent this problem.
