Dave is correct, the detector is NEW. I installed it 3 days ago. It is hardwired so there there is no batteries to replace. The house battery is fully charged

I guess I will contact the vendor about replacing the detector.

Gas detectors will go off if it is warm and a camper is closed up. The carpet and paneling is made with formaldhyde and it gasses when very warm.

why did you replace it? if the old one was beeping you may have a faulty electical conection somewhere. a loose wire will cause it to beep.
