Clicking noise from battery compartment

There's a clicking noise coming from the battery compartment on our GT 351. It was occurring while I run the generator last night and now plugged into shore power. The driver side courtesy light also flickers on and off even though the door shut and the key is not in the ignition. Any ideas?

Sounds like the bus fuse going bad. Should be located near batteries.

It is probably coming from the BCC, which has a number of relays and is the black box located in or very near the battery compartment. It may be sensing the voltage hovering around its set point and is continually bringing in and then dropping the chassis battery. If this is the case, it will stop if you hold down the boost start switch (only as an analysis tool)

That's exactly where it's coming from. It's the same noise as if I turn the coach power switch on. It seems to be random when it occurs. I'm just wondering if it's indicative of a problem ?

The other thing is it seems to occur or whether I'm plugged into shore power or running off the coach battery. It's just as if someone's turning the power switch on and off click click click.
We don't lose power. I was trying to sleep in the pullout bed and the noise is incessant.
