Brake noise

When I plug in the pigtail from pup to TV, there is a buzzing sound that is intermittent, as if it were a beeper rather than a buzzer. The sound comes from the area of the converter. I do not have a battery, and am not plugged in otherwise.

Any ideas?
Thanks

Possibly something with the electric brake motor/actuator? Just a guess. Good luck

So my question to you is, why do you not have a battery in the Pop UP? It is illegal to tow any trailer on the road without a battery to operate the electric brakes. The converter may be trying to tell you there is no battery connected, thus the beeping.

Nope. I guess I didn't ask the right question, but I found the source of the noise.

One of my fuses in the converter was apparently not seated properly, and was leaning against the warning light.

Reseated the fuse, and the noise stopped. Thanks for the suggestions.

I know we like to "awfulize", like "My finger hurts, I must have finger cancer", but usually it's something really simple.

...and I do have a battery for the brakes, but not a larger one for everything else.
