    We have had this mh for10 days and until 2 days ago I heard no buzzers when arming the alarm.
    After using the alarm for 7 days when no buzzers sounded, they have suddenly started to sound.
    How is that possible on its own and how can I now disable the buzzers once again?
    I have been using the dashboard button to arm the interior sensors at night by pushing the button once and waiting for the long flash before pressing the lock button on the keyfob.
    The indicators still flash twice as well to tell me it's activated.
    It is a cobra Globe 4800/4900 can.
    Fitted in 09 when the vehicle was new.
    It's a Fiat. Autotrail Cheyenne.

    Thanks Jim, I have that manual in a physical copy but cannot understand what to do to disable the buzzers, I have read through it end to end, well the English part anyway.

    As this problem has only started in the last few days is it possible the buzzer is a warning of a locker door not closing properly, or something simular,

    I've slammed the doors to make sure they are closed and the hab door as that is alarmed. Any other suggestions gratefully received?

    On mine the sensor comes apart and there is a little battery in there. .you may have a tiny light indicator in it which when you close the door will briefly flash if battery is ok.

    I've read the manual and can't see anything obvious. The only thing that stands out is the mention of "Cars" and pictures of cars. Looks like Autotrail and shoehorning a car alarm into a motorhome.

    They are normally quite quick at getting back to people so I'm sure you'll have it sorted soon (y)

    They rang me earlier. Left a message. Couldn't reply as I had a docs appointment. See what they say tomorrow. Very quick to reply as you said.
