Darn jack down buzzer driving me crazy.

Hi Guys:


Testing all the functions of the new coach. When I am lowering the jacks the buzzer keeps on buzzing until they are down and I remove the key.


Isn't there a switch to shut this thing off?


I had one on my old coach?

The buzzer is there to keep you from starting the rig and trying to drive off with the jacks extended. VERY VERY EXPENSIVE. Live with it... all the rest of us do.

The buzzer is located under the dash behind the instrument cluster and is adjustable. It is a black 2 piece round dome that has holes in it. You can rotate the outer piece and it closes the holes and significantly reduces the sound. It is still just loud enough to remind you. I have a 2018 32SA and yours should be the same as mine.

Mine went off when the fluid was low in the jack system. Eddie Elk.

Plain and simple, it's a safety thing. I know it's annoying, in fact my wife takes the dog outside while I raise or lower the jacks, but it really is there for a good reason. I'd leave it alone!

Thanks Mike: I will see if I can tone it down a little bit. I realize that it is a safety feature.

As stated by rgvtexan, turn the key to the left. The ACC position. This allows the leveling system to operate, extension or retraction, without the buzzer sounding.
I plug in and wait for the power to transfer. I check that the Magnum panel has switched from inverting to charging, switch the key to acc and level. No unnecessary drain on the batteries and no alarm.

It is very annoying. You have to listen to the warning chimes the entire time you're moving the slides out or in.
They have these things so dumbed down it's ridiculous!

I just found ours in our Bus, this one is not the same as the ones described, it’s a small disk shape about the size of a half dollar with a small hole in it. No adjustment. This one is the low pressure alarm. What I did was place a piece of tape over the hole and then using a metal scribe, just made a much smaller hole. I can now barely hear the darn thing. Ours was also located to the right of the steering wheel.
The jacks down alarm is in the Valid air panel and is not very loud at all.

I looked for my buzzer and could not find . The R side of the steering wheel has so much stuff up there . I will look again no luck yet.
