Do you have a dog?? Not sure how this fits in the TIME frame, but we had a similar problem, and found out that it was caused by the dog, sleeping near the alarm and passing gas.

I can't explain the specific time frame you're mentioning, but one possibility could be voltage issues.

Here is info on the CCI Controls detectors found in most rv's. All models note beeping will occur due to low voltage at intervals matching what you state. Does the Fault light come on when you hear the beeping?

I've noticed this situation happens frequently when looking at rv's parked in a dealer's lot.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I had a similar problem, coach batteries were not holding a charge, even while plugged in.

I had a problem with my alarm going off for no apparent reason. It seemed overly sensitive. I ordered a new one from Winnebago and now everything is fine.

We had a similar situation - which is different from the beeping w/the Fault light being on - this past summer. This was the actual alarm going off with the Alarm light being lit. The alarm would go off if the coach was closed up for even the shortest of time (no vents/windows open & no fans on). We could not effectively pin the situation down, although we were able to determine that it was NOT due to a propane leak. We ended up removing the detector & taking it to the dealer. It went off for them, on test, too. After they aired it out by blowing compressed air into it, it stopped alarming. The tech said that, sometimes, they can get overly sensitive & just need a good airing. If airing it out doesn't work, they replace it as being faulty. Don't know whether or not that's true, but we've not had it go into a persistent alarm state since they aired it out. However, it definitely does not like: hairspray, spray perfumes/colognes, spray air fresheners, cooking spray, Febreeze, Windex, 409 cleaner, or anything else that leaves a scent in the air. Any one of those will set it off until I open a vent/window & run the Fantastic fan.

The times that ours has gone off w/o cause, we have found that we had a bad battery that was out gassing.

I think Lori hit the nail on the head with this statement. I replaced two in a previous coach because of hairspray in the bathroom. I suspect her statement would be the cause of many "false" gas alarms.
