Atwood water heater control board

I have an Atwood gas electric DSI 6 gallon hot water heater. When I turn WH on electric the control board makes a steady high pitched tone. Heating element is working and pulls about 12 to 13 amps. This tone is pretty loud and can be heard several feet away. Is it normal for the control / circuit board to make this sound. This is a brand new rig.

My Atwood Makes the same sound in our 2016 Lacrosse. I called Atwood and they said it was normal.

Ours does not make this sound. We have never heard it.

I think it's luck of the draw. My previous two rigs both with Atwood WH's never made this sound. The water heater works flawlessly.

The lite has an Atwood, but no tone.
