That would be a good guess but the ice maker is turned off. I will keep my eyes and ears open. Thanks for the response.

I had mine do that one time after I added water after it had been winterized. What mine was one of the low drain valves was dripping just a little. And mean a drop now and then. Make sure both valves are shut tight. I knew mine was leaking someplace. Finally saw it on my
concrete drive. Never would of saw it on gravel

Thank you mike
There are 3 levels of charging: Bulk, Absorb, and Float. Note the high current for bulk, when the batteries need charging the most. Medium current for absorb, and low level for float. There is also typically a difference in voltage.

I don't pay any attention to when it is on generator or the engine is running and it seems to charge OK. Something to watch out for is the Max Shore power setting if you are not on a 50A connection. When I am home where I only have a 15A circuit I set it to low, like 5A, and that way am able to run an AC at the same time without popping the circuit breaker. When I go to a campground with 50A I reset it to 50A. And if I ever go where there is only 30A I will set it to 30A.

Had the same issue with drain valves. Ended up replacing both. Could never get them to stop leaking.
And yes, the pump ran when the pressure dropped.

This ought to get some response. Ok. I see no reason to use the exhaust brake all the time much less hardly anytime. For me the time to use it is on a downhill grade. To slow down quick every time u let off the gas seems an unreal way to drive. Let the coach coast some into the next stop?? Seem like the way to stop for me.

I leave the exhaust brake on most of the time I a not in traffic. Partly because I think that in a situation that I want max stopping power it might help. The tradeoff is that I sometimes have to feather the throttle so it won't engage. But at low speeds in stop and go traffic it gets in the way or if I want to coast I turn it off.

For the mode button I turn it on when I am not expecting a lot of hill climbing where I might get slowed down by not getting a downshift soon enough.

But I'm not an expert and still learning. Ask me again after 50K miles of experience.

Now for the mode button. No matter rather you use it or not when you get into high gear ( 66) every thing is the same. So my logic there is that 95% of the time your in (66) so how can it help very much. What it does is changes your shift RPM on the up-shift. Not worth the hassle to me. Probably be someone that thinks you will get another mile per gallon. I say it has to be very minimal and it can't even be enough difference to measure. And if anything it's going to give me less power and take more distance for me to get to 65 MPH coming up to speed. I like to get up to road speed as quick as possible as not to be in someone's way.

Bulk charging is when the batteries are discharged at a certain point and a constant full voltage charge is needed for a faster charge. When the voltage is increased by the bulk charging it goes into absorbed charge. Absorbed charge is when the batteries are somewhat close to fully charged and is trickled charged to reach a full charge.

If yours is like mine when the exhaust brake activates the brake lights come on too. So if you are just running along and let off gas a little your brake lights will come on. I'm not one the likes that but that might be OK to others ??

My brake lights "do not" come on when the exhaust brake activates.
