Hello Mtnguy,

We too have a "chirping" regulator...and the dealer also changed it out and the same problem resulted.

I will make sure we get the pigtails checked! Great place to start.

Chirping regulator fixed by changing out the pigtails also. Only happened when I was camping and took the dealer two tries to duplicate and fix. It's happy now just in time for me to trade it in.....
