Problem with electric dump valves!


Has anyone experienced having their electric dump valves opening on their own while driving? At first, I thought I had left them open but after a second day of having it happen, I now know for sure that it was not me. I even moved everything away from the switches so that nothing could bump into them. I checked all the wiring and everything looks fine. Is there anything I should be looking for (besides a service department).

I never even knew they made electric dump valves. What's the point? Pulling a handle once per weekend isn't really that tough. Sorry for the vent...I don't know either...but something is shorting...
