I called the Entegra warranty 800 number and they had no idea. The noise is coming from the back near the awning. Any ideas? I canít get in for a warranty appt for another week. The cruise is also not working - that has been since day 1. I get an error related to the auto detecting of other vehicles. Seems thatís a common problem. I can live with the cruise issue for another week but the beeping is making me insane. Any help would be appreciated.
I just had the same issue with a friend's coach, that may help you. I am not familiar with the brand awning you have on your Entegra. However, is it a Carefree? If so, if you extend the awning about two or three feet you will see a small black box screwed to the awning rail. It is normally held with a couple of phillips screws. That box is your wind sensor that is driven by two AA or AAA batteries. That noise is coming from your awning motor indicating low battery power in that sensor box. Easy to remove the box and change batteries. If I am wrong, you could do as Brobox suggested and remove the 12V fuse if you have a 12V driven awning or circuit breaker if driven by 120V and see if the noise stops. The noise comes and goes because the voltage drop of those batteries drop in cold temps and rises in warmth. Fresh, quality batteries should cure it.
