Steering alarm?

Is there such a warning in a motor home? When I make a sharp turn (like some ramps onto hwys) I get a alarm that ring till I straighten out.

Could possibly be low fluid alarm in your Hydraulic Jack system. When you turn a corner the fluid leans away and alarm sounds.

I'm not aware of any steering alarm but could it be your levellers?
When the hydraulic reservoir is getting low on mine, it alarms when I go over bumpy roads as the fluid moves around. Took me a while to identify as the control panel is not in view.
Maybe when you're turning, the fluid is moving around and causing the alarm?

Apparently, I type too slow....

power gear jacks depend on fluid level to shut the jack down alarm off. so thats a good place to start.

Could also be any other tank level alarm, like coolant or windshield washer.

on our super-c with he Kodiak chassis, we had it happen when the hydro brake unit was low on fluid. We would take a corner and ding ding ding.

Did you have your turn signal on? Our coach sounds an alarm if we have the turn signal on too long.
