Welcome to the forum.

It could be the jacks/leveler warning buzzer as that warning typically will sound when transmission is in-gear and not in neutral. No lights flashing on your leveler control panel? If it is the warning buzzer/beep for the levelers --usually will sound (along with warning light however), when jacks not fully retracted). Check to see that the jacks are fully retracted or extend them and then retract all the way again. If you can trace the warning buzzer to the leveler system, it could possibly be low on fluid too.

I'm just taking a wild guess and more than likely will be wrong on my guess. Others here on the forum have much more expertise and will have suggestions on different things to check.

Welcome to iRV2

Is your coach on a Freightliner chassis ? Air brakes ?
Constant beep/buzz , or oscillating ?

Yea I have had that problem before.I had a cylinder that leaked and would make the buzzer go off but at least I had a light blinking so I could identify what was wrong. This is a lighter beep noise. With no lights.

I also have a 2000 Disco and have the same issue. As already mentioned it is probably the leveling system low fluid alarm.

I have a slight leak in the passenger front level leg. I keep a bottle or two of ATF fluid and top off the reservoir when the alarm sounds. That stops the alarm.

One day I'll get around to rebuilding the level leg.

Freightliner chassis , uses two sensors for the park brake .

One for the light , a second for the alarm . The alarm is silent in neutral .

For a test ,
Engine running , hold you foot on the service brake and put trans into gear , park brake alarm will sound , light will be on .
Release the park brake , and reset several times quickly , if the alarm stops even momentarily or comes on at reduced volume; with the park brake released ; then gets louder .
The problem is the park brake buzzer sensor .
Inside the drivers frame rail just ahead of the differential , attached to the park brake air chamber "T"ed together with the light sensor .
Light sensor has two wires , buzzer sensor has three.

I, had to listen to that !@#$%$#@! for 450 miles , before I figured it out.

This can also be caused by a small switch in the park brake handle. When it goes off, give the park brake handle a good shove in and if it goes off, that is your issue. I drove about 30 miles with the wife frantically googling.

Same,
I put some stop leak in and it worked for a little while, but alas, the last couple trips have needed additional ATF.

Ted G ; Welcome to iRV2

Not all air brake systems use the same warning switches/ sensors .

Please fill out your " About Me " and consider setting up a signature line , so other members know what chassis and coach you have .

Thanks Skip, I think I have it all in now. Been quite a while since I used a VBulletin site, lol!
