Buzzing/alarm sound when starting REV

Hello,
I hope this is the place to ask this. We have a new 2015 Dynamax REV. It is on the Dodge Chasis. Recently when my husband starts it up he gets this buzzing or alarm sound. Sometimes it happens sometimes it doesn't. We haven't used it much yet as we just bought it a month ago. Any ideas of what this obnixous sound could be and what can be done?

Thank you in advance,
Kathy

Does it have air brakes? If so it could be a low air pressure warning. Don't know anything about them.

Looks too small for Air Brakes.

Watch the instrument panel when you start up. Some warning may appear.

Does it have leveling system (like bigfoot)? Maybe one if the rams is not all the way up.

That is the swivel seat sensor. there is a little magnetic sensor in the seat base that is only lined up when the seat is facing forward. So one of three things have happened.

1. one of the seats is facing backwards when you start up.
2. The seat is swiveled around, but not all the way.
3. The magnetic switch got knocked off when the seats where swiveled, wire got cut, switch is not lining up.

If it were my personal unit, I would tape the the switch together and take it off the seat or delete the whole thing. On the Mercedes, they simply have a warning in the owners manual that says "you must have the seats facing forward when driving". No need for a buzzer. Chrysler for some reason wants an audible buzzer as a safety precaution...but yet, no Class A's have that, nor Mercedes and they do just fine.

And that ladies and gentlemen is why if and or when we purchase another motorhome it will absolutely be a Dynamax. The support offered by Mr. Clemens is unmatched IMHO.

aw, shucks.

I just wish I could have gone back in time and told them what a bad idea that was. I caught it when they tried to put one on an Isata 3 (Sprinter). Had them rip it out and take them off the 12 that had already been built. Now, I think they're off of the Promaster as well.

We are expecting to test drive a REV tomorrow.

I am interested in knowing if they are quieter than a typical class C.

engine noise will be quieter. The noisiest thing might be range cover as usual, but a towel takes care of that on the road.
