I tried to put a smoke dector in the basement but it goes off a few minuites after hanging it. It is a Rv dector and I got a better one that I am using in the living area, just thought I would put it in the basement. I had a transfew switch to burn up last month and thought this would make things a little safer. Anybody done this ?

I had a transfer switch to burn up and thought it would be a good idea to put this one in the basement. It was ok until I mounted it in the ceiling. I got it with the Cameo a year ago, but had a much better one. I used the one garage for the last year and no problem. I think I will go a buy another one to put in the basement and put this one back in the garage to see what happens. I have heard that you need to get a smoke dectector for rv s as they subject to vibration.
i went out to the fiver today and put the battery back in the smoke detector today and left in in the rv basement. When I came back to it a hour later it was going off. I took it out and put it on the tool box in the garage and nothing. Not gone off anymore. Anybody got any ideas on what going on with the smoke detector ? I think I will go to Walmart and pick up another one. It will not be for a RV , but wonder it it will go off. The fiver still standing so I guess I don't have a fire.
