Strange noises

Hearing strange noises. When I retract the jacks I can hear jack motor thru the back up camera speaker even though camera is off. Also sub woofer is making a popping-crackling sound even though the stereo system is off. Noticed these noises after taking mh out of storage. I am suspecting mice may have chewed some wiring as I noticed wiring loom on top of generator was chewed but no wire damage there. Saw quite bit of mouse droppings in basement. Could it be a bad ground somewhere? Any suggestions would be appreciated, this has me stumped.

Boy, good luck! The affected wires could be in your dash, in the rear cap or just about anywhere. I'd start opening things up and looking around. You may just get lucky.

You need to start looking and hope you can see it to find.
You need wire spring mouse traps with peanut butter and check during storage because they now love your coach.
I would put them out now and may catch a couple.
I had a mouse drop out of wheel well pumping gas on a trip through Canada in June of one year so you may still have visitors.
With all the noise the problem may be under the dash or near a receiver if you have one for surround system.

Run a new ground wire from the battery bank to the jack pump.

The sound your hearing is back feeding because of poor ground.

You are right about the mouse traps a peanut butter 007, got five of the little buggers in two days. Have had the traps out for several weeks and haven' got any more.
