I suspect that this is the only one that sounds the alarm when the water rise triggers it.
My '08 34HT has the arrangement David describes. When I did some tracing I found the pump runs off one of the house/start batteries and the alarm runs off the second (forget which is which). If I connect the alarm batt'y first it will sound - I assume - to indicate the pump is not powered.
I'm wondering if somehow you have lost power to the emergency pump and that is what the alarm is indicating - vs that the pump sw is activated.
I'd Check the breakers in the batt'y sw panel to see if the emerg'y pump is on and if so see if the pump actually is powered.
