Thanks again everyone, I think some people didn't read the original. He installed a new LP detector, they spent three nights and four days with there dog with no effect, absolutely no LP odor.
he put down tile in the hallway so I am thinking tile glue or possibly batteries.
Thanks again and happy trails

Lysol or Fabreeze used near the detector can set it off also.

In the case of CO false alarms, they can be triggered by humidity. I'd temporarily hang one of these in a different location for safety. Electric Carbon Monoxide Warning Detection Alarm Co Sensor with LCD Display | eBay For $13.25 it would give peace of mind and a PPM readout of actual CO level.

LP detectors can be set off by cleaning fluids, gasoline, and many other chemicals besides Liquid Petroleum. Very likely it is the outgassing of carpet glue or underlayment fumes. Put a small fan on the floor to help hasten dispersal of the fumes, perhaps relocate LP detector temporarily in a location away from carpet and a little higher from floor. (Don't place too high on the wall, in the case of an actual leak your RV would have to fill with gas to that level before a warning, making a very dangerous situation)
