Clicking sound

I am not sure if this is an electrical issue however tonight after bring the AS home from the storage facility I heard a ticking sound coming from the front of the AS. It almost sounded like a time clock but there is no clock on the AS.

The clicking sound is there with or without electrical current from the our house. As far as I can tell all of the electrical items are working to include the lights, TVs, refrigerators and the water pump. I checked the main brakers and they were all good.

I also looked under the bed and on the right front side of the AS near the very front there is some type of item that is black. I cannot tell what it is but was also wondering if it had to do with the brakes. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as the ticking is very annoying.

Thanks
John

Is it near the water heater, furnace or fridge. Possibly an ignitor?

Maybe the controller is quick cycling as your batteries are at full charge?

the manual states every xx seconds is normal. when mine went bad it clicked as fast as a turn signal flasher.
manual: http://www.airforums.com/forums/atta...1&d=1188238776

from this thread: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f448...tem-35476.html

you'll first need to verify that all the connections are good along with the battery (s)
