Please gas detector issue

I am new to the forum and new owner of a 2001 coach house 192 19ft B.
My gas detector keeps beeping when I turn it on but there are no leaks.
Does the gas turn off if the detector is beeping.

The propane detector will not automatically turn off the gas. There are many things that can cause it to alarm though. Any type of aerosol like hairspray or a cleaning product can cause it to go off. It will also beep if the 12v coach batteries are low on voltage. Turn off your propane supply and open the doors to air out the RV. If it continues to alarm it may need to be replaced. They are only good for 5 years or so.

What they said. Detectors age out and will beep till you replace them .

Happened to me with 2 RV's now. Provides some heart stimulation until you figure out that it is just old. There is a date on the unit that tells you when to replace it. If it is more than five years past the date just order a new one. I just ordered one from Amazon myself.

Yepper, it's reached the End of the Road. Mine was doing the same thing and for a change, something I need is still being made in the original form factor!


Try any of the RV suppliers that advertise here on iRV2 or that "river" company that's all the rage these days. Depending on exact make & model you're looking at $40-$90, 2-4 screws and 2 wires to connect.

CCI

I have discovered a couple things since posting my question.
First my detector is made by CCI. It operates a shut off valve when it detects a leak.
I also learned that the replacement ( made by a different company, of course) is in the neighborhood of $290.00.
Has anyone else experienced replacing the CCI 7719 with a detector without a shutoff valve and if you have, how has it worked out for you?

How old is the detector? They did not start putting end of life alarms on them until about 2004

Propane detectors have a limited lifespan. I had a CCI detector of 1999 vintage which would not "smell" propane. The detector part can be found today and it is possible to restore these to "as new" configuration.

Clicky!!!

LP/CO solenoid valve very hot to touch

2003 Coach House owner here. My gas detector beeps for about 5 minutes or so every time I turn it on. Sometimes even longer. Then it decides to settle down and all is fine. Iíve owned this coach since it was made and thatís the way itís been. By the way, it has been tested and it is working.

The date your detector was manufactured is stamped/should be stamped on the back of the detector. On the back of mine it states the detector is only good for 5 years from manufactured date and should be replaced when that date has been reached. Mine was beeping, I would reset and it would be fine for a while but, that time between resets got shorter and shorter and finally it faulted out and I could not reset it. Mine does not have the gas cutoff feature, it just alarms. Mine is made by MTI and the replacement cost around $49 from Amazon. It was very simple to replace, two wires and two wood screws.
