Damon Challenger CO detector question

Hello everyone. First post here. We just traded in a 99 Georgie Boy Pursuit 2905 for a 2010 Damon Challenger 368 and brought it home 2 weekends ago. We love the new rig. Anyway, we didn't purchase the proper adapter to charge it at home so it's been sitting for the past 2 weekends. (I've been working alot and the wife has been in and out of it prepping it for our first trip). Anyway I got home from work and went out to grab the manuals to read up a bit and the CO detector was alarming with the coach off and not plugged in. I thought it may have something to do with the batteries discharging so I fired up the gennie and it continued for about 15 minutes or so. After the 15 minutes the alarm stopped and the indicator went from red to green. Thinking back I had the entry door open while I was trying to figure out what was going off so I'm not sure if we have a leak somewhere or not. My question is is that normal for the alarm to alert when the battery is going dead?

My CO detector also beeps when batteries get discharged. A visitor had flipped on the compartment lights and we were using the heater. About 3 AM i woke up to a quiet beeping of the CO detector and heard the furnace fan just barely turning. I had to get up and run the generator for an hour or two to get through the night. Now the compartment lights have an indicator light on the dash!

Those adaptors for 50-30 or 30-20 are available at most Walmarts, no need to go to an RV store.
