While I can't help you with a manual I can tell you that the alarms are from your CO and LPG detector which also double as low battery alarms because they will go off during low battery conditions. There probably something wrong with the control board in the HWH - presuming it is a DSI type. Something is drawing lots of current somewhere. What you really need is a wiring diagram. Lacking that, you can isolate circuits using the fuse panel and an ammeter. Measure the current draw into the fuse panel (under normal conditions with all major appliences off it should be quite small - less than an amp and probably even less than half an amp) and then remove one fuse at a time and see if the current draw decreases. When you find the fuse that causes the current to change - that is your culprit. Investigate that circuit for shorted wires, bad circuit boards etc. BTW does your HWH work???

The "manual" that I've seen come with most new RV's usually just covers safe use.

I would highly suggest a book called RV Repair and Maintenance Manual, by Bob Livingston. You can get it at Amazon, or probably any book store. It covers electrical, down to disassembly of most toilets, and most everything in between, and it is well written.

Secondly, in addition to looking for something drawing down your batteries, I'd also look at the batteries for a dry cell or corroded connection. If voltage is below about 10.5 or so LP and CO2 detectors (and other electronics) will begin to malfunction.

Also, I've seen a lot of people new to RVs vastly underestimate the time it takes for their converter to bring batteries up to full charge.

The owners manual for the trailer itself won't have much useful info. You need the individual manuals for the alarms (which ones?) and for the water heater (should have come with the new one when it was installed - go back and ask for it). These are often available online, or if you can identify the alarm model, chances are excellent that other Rvs have the same one or a similar model.

I'm guessing the alarm is either LPG or CO, either of which could be caused by a faulty water heater install. There should be a reset button on the alarm itself, either a slide switch or pushbutton. You mayhave to hold it in for a moment. If it won't reset, chances are the cause ofthe alarm is still present.
