Odd sound after using battery disconnect

2017 Bounder 33C. When I turn my Battery Disconnect switch on I hear a sound coming from right front. It sounds like a leveling jack going up and down, but nothing is moving and I can't feel anything vibrating. I can't find where the sound is coming from. Has anyone had this to happen.

I think you'll need to be a little more specific. A sound coming from the right front
of the BCC?
of the RV by the leveling jack itself?
only from the aux battery switch when activated?
only from the main battery switch when activated?

The battery disconnect switches activate a solenoid. You should hear a type of clunk. That is when the solenoid is moving from one position to the other. That will be inside the BCC (black box in the first basement compartment just left/behind the entry door.)

Any other noise would not be normal when simply activating/deactivation the battery disconnect switches.
I don't make it much on here anymore so will not see your reply to my comment. Drop me a direct message and when I come back on I will see it.
