    Carbon Monoxide and Gas Alarm

    Was wondering if anyone else is having their alarm going off excessively? We have had our propane off for several days and we get a gas (not CO2) alarm 2-3 times each day on our detector.

    Any chance your batteries are real low? There is a warning chirp that starts up when the batteries get below a certain level. It's different than the alarm. I've had that happen, but no false alarms.

    Take the alarm off the wall and look for a date on the back. That is where they are generally located. The sensors have an expiration date. I had a Jayco one time that the alarm kept going off and the dealer replaced it. It had not expired but I guess it just went belly up.

    Batteries are full up.

    That's some accurate calculation !! I change my batteries every year on everything. Leave the batteries in the trailer over the winter ... not great. I have changed my smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to a talking combo type with lithium ion batteries and removed them when I parked the trailer for the winter. I have no illusions that they will last the ten years the manufacturer claims so I expect to be using the warranty at some time.

    Carbon Monoxide and Gas Alarm

    Assume you mean the LP/CO detector. It. Hard wired to 12v - no battery. They are supposed to have a 5 year life from installation, but after a year and 3-4 false alarms a day, I went on-line and ordered a replacement. I've not had a single false alarm since I installed it a month ago. The replacement I got was the same brand, but a flush mount which looks much neater than the surface mount unit GD used.

    As and aside, I also installed a 9v CO detector in the bedroom just for safety's sake.

    Its the same one you described. Was trying to glean some info before I went out and bought a new one. Thanks for your insight.
