Electrical Issue

Does anyone know what the black box on the back wall of the compartment where the inverter and transfer switch are located? I was checking a few things on my coach and I hear a 'ticking' noise coming from that black box. Everything seems to be working correctly but I am concerned about the noise. Noise is not coming from the inverter or the transfer switch but from that 'black box'. The noise is a constant ticking, like a clock.
Any one have any ideas what that black box is for? Has anyone experienced this problem and if so, what was the fix?

Tom, in ours anyway the box holds fues and relays for the harness for the toad. just open up the box and see what relay is hanging up for your turn signals.

Tom, here's a thought, maybe your turn signal is on and with the key off there still maybe a signal being sent back to the relays in the box. I know the relays in the box make a ticking sounds when I was trouble shooting why one of our toad lights was not working.

Let me know how you make out.

Skip,
Woke up about 5 am and thought about what you said so I went out to the coach (had to do it right away) and naturally it was raining, and sure enough, the turn signal stalk was pushed up and in the on position. Turned the directional off and magically the ticking stopped (LOL!!). I had been looking at my tire pressure monitor, which is on the left side of the dash and must have inadvertently hit the turn signal. The only thing that is curious is that there was no beeping inside the coach indicating that the directional was and I didn't notice any of the outside direction lights flashing. Not sure why.

But, thanks for the great call on the directional. All is well now.
Tom

Tom, Great. Glad to help and now you also know that there is a additional fuse box back in the rear. Our turn signals stop beeping after a few monments when signal is on.
