Safe-T-Alert white flush mount LP gas alarm problem....!

I have one of these in my Jayco JayFlight. It was more than five years old and wouldn't stop beeping one day. I ordered a new one on ebay. Installed the exact same one. NO power to it. Returned it-as defective. Ordered a new one from another place. Same thing no power. This is the same connection as used from the trailer. The old one always worked. I still have no power coming to this unit. I don't see any fuses broken at the panel. I have no idea how to make this work again? Should I just hook up a 12 volt toy battery to make it work, without using the trailer power. I have made sure I have shore power, generator power and even a new battery for the rig. What is next. This should be a no brainer?
I am very mechanically inclined and know how to do work on my trailer and other things.
What do you recommend I shall do. These buggers are expensive

I have two in our M.H. and they have Elect. to each one there is even a breaker for them.
The only thing that makes all of the noise is the smoke detector when my wife cooks it has a battery in it so when it goes off we just reach up and flip the switch to off. (I installed the switch my self) now when my wife starts to cook she turns it off until she is finish cooking then she or I turn it back on.

Never seen a 120VAC LP detector. The are usually 12VDC so they will most likely always have power.
Also, don't just "look" at fuses. Test them.
