Reverse Senor Issue

Good evening kids. Been a long time since I have been on here, but now I need your help.

I have just tried a cursory search for my issue, but I am not having much luck.

I am on vacation in NC and brought Jolene along with us, well it seems that her reverse sensors have just gone Tango Uniform. Every time a drop her into reverse, I get the constant tone from the reverse sensors that I am damn near on top of an obstacle. I tried cleaning the sensors, and just sticking my hand behind the bumper to see if I felt something loose. It's dark and 24 degrees out and blowing like a mofo. I really don't want to be outside any longer on this than I have to, so I didn't try very hard.

Does anyone have any ideas, had this happen to them, or just plain know how to fix this? It's really upsetting me, but then again, I have been up for almost 48 hours and anything at this point will set me off.

And yes, I know I can just push the button on the dash to silence the buzzer, but that's not the point here. I want my dear Jolene working again like she used to.

Thank you in advance for you help in this matter.

Just an idea. I dont have the sensors so not sure exactly how they work. You said you were on vacation just thinking out loud. The reciever hitch is not causing this to happen is it. Sorry if this is a stupid question just thinking of everything the sensor could be reading.

Very well possible! That thought never occured to me, being from Florida and all.

Not a bad suggestion, but I don't have a trailer attached and my hitch has never caused a problem before.



-UPDATE-
Though I am happy to report as of now, Jolene may have seemed to have fixed herself overnight. Temps got down to 14, so maybe that scared the gremlins away. So far everything seems to be working alright. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

She don't like waking up to these temps I have to say. She pissed, moaned and complained but she got herself going. Poor Florida girl, I'll have to treat to something extra special this week, she's not used this treatment.

I have a b&w turnover ball on mine and the wire cable that holds all three pins together if it moves just right it will set it off. I had the same thing happen with my pindle hitches with it being a little longer of a hitch it would set them off. I know it did not make sense to me. With the hitches out it never goes off unless there is mud covering them up or something is there.
