Those detectors are VERY sensitive. I have read about them going off after a small dog farted! It could be trying to tell you something...maybe you have a propane leak that you haven't smelled yourself? Or it could be CO? I'd do a bit more troubleshooting and see if the problem continues before writing it off as a broken detector. CO is odorless and tasteless...and deadly.

The Detector goes off on propane but not on shore power......

Question is it

Beep............................beep.............. ...................beep
(long time between beeps 1/2 minute or more and it's more a chirp than a beep).

or

Beep Beep Beep

or

BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEE

The first is "System error" often low battery, plugging in would add the converter to the mix and raise the system voltage (it runs on battery power)

The last two are alarm modes. Different brands.

If the wind affected your beeping, suggests to me that the alarm was working as designed, and the breeze was bringing in some noxious fumes that it detected.

If that's the case, then you moved to cleaner air?!

Minimally... a quieter space without that beeping sound!!

You don't say how old your RV is, but our CO2 detector was going off intermittently for no apparent reason. When I took it down to investigate, the first thing I noticed was a sticker that said it had a 10 year recommended life span. The second thing I noticed was a date of manufacture stamp of 10/2004. That was less than a month ago. I replaced the CO2, LPG and smoke detectors and haven't had a problem since.

I did the same thing Craig R did.. no more problems after that. The sniffers get old and contaminated.

Remember that a Carbon Monoxide detector and LPG detector are two different animals. Are you sure it's not the LPG detector that's going off?
