Default Clicking noise in electrical panel

I just recently started hearing a clicking noise in the electrical panel when my 2004 BT Cruiser is plugged in to power. This has happened twice when my fridge is on auto. The fridge is getting cold and the freezer is working. Has anyone had this happen to them?

There is no clicking noise when on battery power.

Thanks for any info.

It's a relay failing. Follow the click until you find it then replace the relay. It's probably hot too. Find the hot one.

You're welcome. If you find the relay I can help you source it. It's an important relay because when it fails totally you may lose your fridge contents.
One other thing to think about;
If your shore power has a bad connection or other power gliche then the fridge relay will go on and off switching from electric to gas.
If you are confident there's no problem with the power supply then it's probably the relay.

As it is plugged into my house I know the power source is okay. I am going to take it into to my RV place to have them look at it and replace whatever is needed. This a job that as a senior lady newbie I don't want to attempt. Thanks again.

There is no clicking noise when on battery power.

Thanks for any info.
Sounds like the DC power supply charging your battery. It should stop when the battery is fully charged...otherwise, have the relay checked.
