Ours was going off on occasions which scared me. Finally realized it was coming from fridge. The connection on the outer side was misaligned. Black soot when we removed outside cover. National replaced fridge. Probably saved from a bad fire. Thank you Lord.

We have a residential style. Would that also have an exhaust ? It's separated by cabin it's and the stove. The stove was tested for a leak but there were none

Propane detector problems

Try disconnecting power to it for a few minutes then power it back up. It's should go through a self test and reset. Ours is a combo CO and gas that went off one night and the only way I could get it to reset was to pull the fuse. We carry a digital CO meter with us now also as a backup plus the display is nice so you know if your actually have a problem.

Never thought about a reset. I'll keep this topic open and let everyone know how we make out. Thanks again.

After blowing out with compressed air,vacuuming , and resetting , the alarm still went off at 3:00 am. We ended up having a new one installed. We'll see what happens next?

Just an update on the detector problem that we were having. We had relatives
Stay at the camper and , of course the propane detector did go off at about 9:00 am. The propane was never turned on during there overnight stay. The local fire dept was called because of the alarm going off. The fire dept checked for any leeks throughout the whole system from front to back and came up empty. We ended up getting our detector replace with a new one( same model number). After using the camper for several weeks now there hasn't been any issues.
