Odd noise on start-up

Cold start. Ignition on, trans in Park and engine running at idle.

About 10 seconds later the odd noise occurs. It is from the back end it seems, and sounds like someone in a vehicle 100 yards away gives me one short honk.

Hard to hear, but it occurs every time, possibly from the time we bought it 18 months ago. Not sure. But now I really listen......and for 3 months or more, it sounds off.......from a cold start.

Will do some investigation as RV is now in an enclosed steel shed. Will have DW start the critter up and I will be inside/outside/underneath, towards the back......listening. Will listen after a warm start, also.

Any ideas as to what this short "honk" might be?
