Propane Alarm

We just bought our travel trailer and turned on the furnace for the first time last night and the LP alarm went off immediately. We shut off the propane and opened the doors and it went off. We tried again and the same thing happened. Any ideas if this could be just because the trailer is new? I appreciate any input.

Quite possibly it is just that the furnace is new. I would open some windows and turn on an exhaust fan. Let things run for a while. I had the same issue with a new coach furnace, it is not unusual.

Had the same issue on our first night out. Ventilation helps keep the noise down.

I can't answer your question directly but if you opened the door and the alarm cleared- there was something to cause it to go off- either propane or something else. If you look at your lp detector book- it will tell you the other things that can cause a false alarm..some of the common ones are perfumes, hair spray, certain cleaning products. I can tell you from experience that perfume and hair spray will set it off for sure!
