Pulsing, Repetitive Noise in Front -- TY Tiffin!

we were preparing to leave from campground as our club was closing the campout...
all was good, but, we could hear this repetitive continuing noise primarily in the front. sort of like windshield wiper motor , or a jack hydraulics cycling or ? something... nothing would cause it to start or stop...

concerned we turned everything off and on again... checked all systems we could think of... noise continued..

a few times before, i'd called the factory and gotten great answers to questions. i hated to call again, but, finally caved in... (i'd tried to call coachmen with our first camper and could never get to a human!!)
so, i caved in and called tiffin... got to Greg in service.. he made a couple of suggestions to no avail. then asked "could this be your satellite searching?" my immediate thought was no, as we have not used the satellite. we just bought the camper a month ago...
then i remembered a friend had come over and pushed some buttons behind the bedroom tv..

greg was right on... i pushed a button that greg directed me to and the noise stopped!

trainee... whose awesomely proud i've bought a coach from a company that will talk to me!!

36la!

Good to hear you not only got to a warm body but they knew what to tell you to solve a problem.
Happy Travels

Funny. I know exactly how you felt. We have but don't use (yet) a Wineguard dish on the roof. I also installed a Wineguard Connect 2.0 internet booster. One day, after topping off my hydraulic fluid, I decided to go into the coach, open up the slides, etc. I flipped on the Wineguard switch (wrong one!) and as the slides started going out, I was hearing all this extra noise. Of course I'm thinking I goofed up something in the hydraulics when I was checking and filling the fluid. Finally realized it was the dish looking for a signal as I had turned on the wrong Wineguard unit.
