Carbon monoxide beeping

Hi all , background info .
Class c with solar. 2-6v batteries. First time out camping this trip in unserviced spot.
Noticed small converter to power up iPhone beeps on occasion . USB plug on the solar panel board is not working though board reads fully charged batteries . Last night before bed ( of course) both carbon monoxide detectors starting beeping and fridge , which is propane , is flashing LO DC.
Is this a fuse issue or more ?
Thanks heaps!

It sounds like your batteries are not fully charged. What is your battery voltage?

Check water in batteries... may be low. Remember it takes many hour to fully charge batteries. Flooded Lead Acid (Golf Cart) batteries do not absorb energy as fast as AGM or Lithium.

I suggest you install a $40 AiLi Battery monitor. It will show you voltage hou much battery you have used, and how much is left. Works great.

Battery/s dead. All those most likely run on battery power.

Do you have an owners manual?? If not, might be available online or someone here if you post yr and model of rv.

Battery voltage is the hear of your rv and must be up to par.

If the detector still beeps after following previous advise from others, it could be that your carbon monoxide detector is at the end of it's life. They are set to beep after a certain amount of time after it has been put into service. We have one at home and learned about it because it started beeping as if the battery inside was failing, but it turned out otherwise. The information was stated so on the backside of the unit.

Thanks. The beeping stopped once we started the Moho. Lucky for us it was our last night. All seemed to eradicate once we were under way. I will check the coach battery and also the water levels in the 2-6 volt batteries we use for our solar. It was, after all our first time out camping and lucky for us, our camping spot was only a short 45 min drive, I think the Moho didn’t actually have a long enough time to really self charge from a winters sleep.

Low batteries; 12.6vdc= 100%, but 12.0-12.1= 50%+/-, so where are yours when beeping? (using accurate VOM)
