Disconnecting Coach Batteries fro RV Storage

I want to disconnect the coach batteries because during extended storage, the batteries will be slowly drained by things like the Propane Detector.

Upon disconnecting the battery, however, both our Smoke and Propane Detectors are chirping.

The smoke detector has a removable battery, but I am unable to find one in the manual for the Propane Detector. Surely there is one IN it to power the annoying chirping.

Can you find model numbers to see if you can find a manual online? Our smoke detector runs on three AAs, and the compartment, even though on the front side, it's hard to see. Some of them have batteries on the back end and you need to remove it. Others may have an internal battery or capacitor that will chirp to let you know that the main 12v power is disconnected.
