    Hi, We are new to motorhome, and we have used the motorhome four times, we have a Autotrail Cheyenne on a Mercedes, 2004. The alarm is a Toad Alarm 850T, each time at midnight, the unit seems to set itself, and the alarm startes bleeping, not an audible alarm, but just a series of beeps, so doesn't waken the campsite, but wakens us. I have spoken to Taod Alarms, and they say there are no timing devices on the alarm so they think it is something to do with the Mercedes ECU.

    Has anyone got any suggestions on what to do.

    Don't get any beeps from my Merc. Doesn't sound a very convincing reply to me. :Eek!:

    Alarm = Off :BigGrin:
    do you mean you've fixed the problem?

    if not it appears to be exactly what it says on the box.....an ALARM CLOCK...ie-- wakey wakey, get up you lazy ba**ard!
    nothing to do with the toad intruder alarm.

    if you cant turn it off just set it for a daytime alarm time when it wont bother you...:BigGrin:
