Alarm sound in coach after changing batteries
We are new owners of a 2000 Magna and on the 60 miles drive home I learned that there is a lot to learn.
I already knew it need new coach batteries so immediately drove to a battery shop. They replaced what was in there - regular 8 D - with regular 8D. Immediately upon starting the engine I got a rapid chirping alarm sound. I couldn't locate the exact source of the alarm but it is coming from the ceiling in the center of the coach near the fridge. In order to shut it up I flipped the coach battery disconnect.
I don't have a lot of confidence in the Interstate Battery tech that installed the batteries so I have contacted another shop to see if they have more info on the battery that should be used. Waiting to hear back from them. Hopefully I can change out the batteries they put in with the right ones. At $225 each and I needed 2, I am not happy.
But what causes the chirping alarm? Any clues?
I know I'll be tackling multiple issues as I go through the systems. The previous owner had fairly good records up to 2010 but apparently he got sick and the remaining records can't be located by his wife. He died a couple of years ago.
I've never had a diesel before so I have an additional learning curve.
