Currently enjoying a short stay at Ocean Mesa, a new RV park adjacent to El Capitan Canyon, about 20 miles North of Santa Barbara. Yesterday afternoon we heard a double "chirp" coming from the area of the inverter/surge Guard/Direct TV unit/tank level guage apprpximately every 5 minutes. All seems o.k.. Any ideas? This noise is getting old, especially in the night hours.

Is your smoke alarm in the same general area--if so, its probably time for a new 9v battery...dean

Rick- I had that. Check your AGS for an alarm or pending alarm, then find the screen that clears alarms, & clear alarms. Sometimes I plug in where the difference in voltage between legs on the incoming 240V service bothers the inverter. And sometimes there is an alarm the purpose or source of which I can't figure out. So far, I have cleared the alarms & the phantom goes away.

Scout- I did check the smoke alarm battery and it was o.k.

Mike- I'll look into that.

However, after 18 hours of quiet chirps, the bird mysteriously disappeared!

Rick -
if it's in the area, the propane alarm could be telling you that the battery is low.

Go to AGS panel, hit Enter, arrow down to System Panel & hit Enter.
Arrow down to Clear Faults/Warnings, hit Enter (I don't recall if you have to hold Enter down rather than just hit it once).
