When stopped, you can hear a constant clicking sound coming from the A-pillar, where the air gauges are mounted. Actually, the sound is coming from the base of the A-pillar, or possibly even lower.

We just got back from the FL service center for the latest checkup...they noted the sound, said it was from the air gauges, but the issue was a Newmar one, not a FL one, so good luck.

The gauges themselves are queit, and they show normal pressures and there is no movement of the needles noticed along with the clicking.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Clicking sounds are many times related to relays toogling on and off. See if there is any deflection shown on your voltage while this is happening.

The voltage gauge is right next to the 2 air gauges...it's steady as always.

I can watch the refresh signal (gauge changes value) and hear the click to the electrical gauges on my coach. They all click as they refresh the signal (air, voltage, trans, coolant temp, etc).

I assume it is just something in the way they are manufactured.

Unless things have changed since I was active at FCCCC, the air gages are digital and signal comes from the VDC so no mechanicals involved anywhere to be source of noise.
