Clicking sound under the dash

We recently purchased a 2010 Georgetown 350ts. We are on our first camping trip and have been onsite about a week. Last night a clicking sound started under the dash. It is very random and sometimes happens a lot. It sounds like a relay is being energized on and off. If the key is turned forward or backward it stops. So it is post ignition. That's any easy way to keep it quiet until I can get it looked at, but the key turned makes the TV not work. Anyone have any insight?

I assume you mean the clicking happens when the motor is not running and the ignition is off. Turning the key to the on position stops it.

That sounds like an ignition safety interlock relay dropping in and out due to a bad relay or a loose connection somewhere in the coach. They can be pretty hard to find. Wish I could be more help as I am not a motorhome type.

Unplug the tv safety device. It keeps the tv from working while driving down the road. It is in the cabinet next to the tv and the tv power cord is plugged in it. Plug it back together when u leave for home if u like? I choose to leave it unplugged.

We recently had a loud ticking sound under the dash, turned out to be the gen hour meter on 08 George.

I know there's a relay that connects the Chassis battery to the Charging System that also charges the Coach Batteries when plugged in. However this relay should only be making contact when the Chassis Battery has a drain on it. Also this relay is in the Battery Control Center and usually under the steps near the coach batteries.
