Low voltage relay cycling

The low voltage relay in my battery compartment is cycling. I can hear it "thump" about every 10 seconds. The batteries are 3 months old and voltages all check out. Any tips?

Thanks!

GT

Are you sure it's not a circuit breaker? In which case something is drawing too much current.

GT,

If you have the Vansco electrical system, this can be a common problem. There have been many posts on it, here is one. Only pay attention to the cycling issue and the replies from Alpine owners, it is an Alpine issue.

GTH:

That has happened a couple times for me. To stop it, I turned off both 12v main switches, disconnected from shorepower then reconnected and turned switches to on. It stopped the problem both times. Dunno why.
