Clicking noise

Lately we hear a click as we walk by the Montana on each side right behind the cargo doors. Then it doesn't do it again till about 30 minutes later.. Does anybody know what this could be? It is plugged into shore power just for the winter, nothing on except one small heater inside... Thanks

just a thought, is your water pump on? Maybe when the electric heater turns on the panel clicks.

Electric water heater is off and drained, pump is also off. Sounds like a sensor of some kind, but could it be the jacks adjusting?

Auto Leveling system will make noise with temp changes. Your brochure provides specific options for fluid addition to the reservoir. Maybe that is what is occurring.

Could it be the converter cycling?

I have not yet added the recommended fluid to my hydraulic system and I hear this "clicking" sound and know it is the expansion and contraction of the fluid in the level up rams.

If you are hearing this noise on both sides of your unit I would be betting on the Hydraulic fluid.

Lippert have a recommended solution to this problem, follow their instructions and it will go away.

I have not done the recommended fluid switch/add to mine and still get the "clicking" during temperature variations. That is what I am betting it is. Sometimes it can almost sound like some type of breaker tripping on and off or something.

Ours was quite load until we drained/changed oil and then it all bu disappeared. Still does it but not very often.

Could it be your furnace igniter trying to light without propane?
