Thanks for the input We own a 2017 Honda Accord Touring sedan that has several active safety features. My wife drives it everyday and has turned off several of these features. It's another car that see's things that aren't there.

Geezzzeee; for the price of an Atlas, it should come with a salesman/instructor for the first year to help with these questions!

Check awning and step both have a alarm installed by Airstream and will not show on the dash.

I'll check them both. Thank You. It makes sense that it was on the Airstream side of the coach instead of the Mercedes Benz info side.

As I was parking it in the storage lot last night, I noticed that the left rear utility access door isn't locking. I have to read through the manual to see if it has an alarm that sounds if all of the outside storage doors aren't locked.

Thanks for your input.

Perhaps try switching OFF the ASR, Collision Prevention, Lane Keeping and see if warning sound stops.

I’l Give that a try however the lane keeping warning is a totally different sound. It’s worth a try however.

I phoned the factory about this issue and told them about the drivers side rear compartment not locking. They said that a tone will sound if you drive with one of the outside storage compartment doors open. They said that it is likely the reason for the tone I am experiencing.

That you for the input.

I have experienced both tones you describe. The open bin alarm chirps from the cabinet behind the passenger and forward of the side door. It should also light up the travel warning on the dash by the ignition key. The other “tone” that you first mentioned is still a mystery to me. I can’t make it sound on purpose. For me it occurs when I first roll and usually in conjunction with the tilt that occurs when you roll into a pothole or over something. It never happens above 2 mph or so. For an “alarm” it is pretty pathetic, since so far nobody can tell me what its alarming about. Right now I’m guessing it has something to do with the air-ride suspension, but who knows?

It looks like you have the answer for what my problem is. I believe you are correct about the air ride suspension alarm as well. I get the same tone when I pull out of my storage lot. The lot concrete apron of its driveway butts up to the street at a angle which upsets the suspension which causes the MH to rock side to side. I approach it at a very slow speed but sometimes get the alarm as the coach rocks side to side.

I'll look for the travel alarm light next to the ignition switch after I make sure the rear cabinet doors are closed behind the pass seat.

Thanks so much for your input.

Nav System?

I have heard the tones in my 2019 Atlas and decided it could be “uncharted” RV clearance warning from the new Nav system.

Warning tone?

Check to see if the awning open sensor switch is too touchy! Or the awning may not be as tightly wound up possible.

I was driving on that awful I-10 approaching Baton Rouge when I started getting a little “chirp” whenever I hit a pothole or something. Which was pretty much a lot of chirps since I was on I-10. Anyway I got out and checked the bins. All were locked tight except the door for the generator. The bumpy road was so bad it was overriding the magnetic lock just enough for the travel alarm to sound, just for a micro-second. I tested it by driving and watching for the travel alarm light, and sure enough, when the chirp chirpped the light came on very briefly.

I have a 2018 Interstate Grand Tour and have a very similar problem. I believe it's the avoidance system, but sometimes it sounds a "bong" as I'm driving down the highway when no other vehicle is near by. Then sometimes it's a "bong bong". Mostly tied to a turn, but no warning lights, just the sound.

Also, this isn't the blind spot warning. It's a different sound. It isn't tied to the Mirror warning red indicator either.

Any way to disable this?

Thanks for the reply. I don't know of a way to turn these alarms off.
