Tryin to remove bedroom ceiling smoke detector

I'm needing to remove the bedroom ceiling smoke detector in my 2015 4018 DS, but unable to tell how much force to apply.
At home they just twist counterclockwise a tad, and on my previous coach it had a 2" plastic pin that had to be pulled out first before twisting.

Don't want to tear a hole in the ceiling. Anyone know the secret, or already removed their's to replace the battery?

Are you sure that the manual for the detector isn't with your documentation?

First pull the plastic pin, then turn counter clockwise. ( lefty loosy)
May be push up while turning.

Found the information in the black bag. Turns out it's a carbon monoxide detector. As usual it's not very clear on how to get to the battery to replace it. Tells how to originally install the unit but not how to remove the unit from the ceiling for battery replacement. Will take another look tomorrow.

I was thinking that some were wired in direct without a battery. You might make sure that it has a battery. I had read that somewhere but I could be wrong.

We have a 2015 DS and I'm pretty sure that on both our smoke detector and CO detector that you pull the cover down on one side rather than twisting and removing. Look to see if there's a little thumb indentation on one side of the cover. if so, pull down there. I believe it's hinged and the cover will stay on when opened rather than coming off entirely.

+1. Hinged on one side; slight indentations indicate where to put your thumb to gently pull one side down.

Found the thumb indention. Cover does swing down instead of coming off. Takes a 9V battery. Glad we weren't out on a trip when it started beeping, which is usually during the night for some reason with these detectors.
