4 way hazard flashers.

On checking out systems on this new to me motorhome found the flashers operating at about twice the normal speed. It seems to me that this happened on another vehicle years ago but I can not remember the fix.
Any thoughts on this welcome.

Sounds like someone has installed a standard duty turn signal flasher in the emergency flasher socket. But check all the bulbs anyway.
The SD flasher is load sensitive , to flicker instead of flash to warn the driver that there's a bulb out , or in this case to big a load .
Install a HD ( electronic ) flasher in the emergency socket and you'll be fine.

Oftentimes the bulbs in the four way system are dual filament because they serve multiple purposes. The high speed flashing is almost always an indication that you have at least one filament burnt out on that side of the coach. If you have the high speed flash on both sides, your problem may be the flasher, but my money would still be on a bulb. Last time I saw a flasher fail was about 1973.

Are all of the bulbs working? On an auto a fast turn signal or fast flasher is an indication that a bulb has burnt out.

Thank you all for your help. I noticed that my signal socket had a HD electronic flasher so swapped them over . The hazard lamps are now working correctly.
The other flasher is now working overtime in the signal socket. Will get another HD flasher for the signals.So these flashers do give up on the odd occasion.
