    April 1, 2021So......I know you should be able to smell propane. In our 2021 Coachmen Sportscoach the propane detector is going off just for like three beeps and then it may go a couple of days and do it again. We do not smell it....I have unplugged the 50 amp power c...  more

      Kevin/Yvonne & 4 Doxies April 1, 2021 Do you have wet cell batteries that may be going through a desulfanation process and hydrogen is hitting detector. Or was there hairspray used near the detector. I have read about both and experienced the battery issue. Batteries are in storage bay and th...  more

        BIG April 3, 2021 I just changed my Propane and CO2 sensor 2 weeks ago. Both were over 6 years old.
        They are very easy to replace. Check google for pricing options.

      Jim & Sharon Ham April 1, 2021 Some brands of propane detectors have a service life of only 5 years.  Unscrew it and look for a paper date sticker on the back. Most run on 12 volts DC off the battery, so if you hit the battery disconnect switch while in storage, that should have killed...  more

      sailsam April 1, 2021 We've also had the hairspray (and almost any other aerosol) set off the propane detector and/or the CO detector.  But two or three SHORT beeps have almost always been caused by the battery (either the house battery or the 9 volt battery in the detector) g...  more

      mrjeff April 2, 2021 I experienced that with my co2 / propane detector I needed to charge house battery When it started beeping more frequently, but also at random times it was out of date and I needed to replace it. I was annoyed because it didn’t even make th...  more

      Rhonda and Mirk April 2, 2021 We just had that problem with our Coachman Mirada 350s 2019. We took out the detector and found out the date was July 3 2018 expiration. They put an old detector in our brand new RV. I called Coachman and complained and they sent me a new one. Contact Tim Buss.

      Joseph S Testa - RV Mentor April 2, 2021 Here is my blog post on "beeping": https://rvmentor.com/2019/11/29/beeping/ I also carry a handheld propane detector in my RV also.

      Daniel and Carol Hamer April 2, 2021 The gas detector has a maximum life span of between 5-7 years. Smoke detectors have a maximum life span of 10 years. This is figured out by either manufacturer date or a replace by date on the individual detector. It may last less. Also if you have pets a...  more

      Jerry and Anna April 2, 2021 As mentioned aerosols and other things can set them off. Ours was doing that and after not finding any other reason we finally just replaced it. No more problems.

      Dan-n-Jo April 2, 2021 We had our propane/co2 detctor go off a coupe of times and could not figure it out. Then the furnace would not run. Then the refrigerator stopping working. Then the leveler jacks blew the main fuse on that curcuit. All these were intermittant for about 2 ...  more

      Jenna & The ZARGON April 2, 2021 Also where they mount those devices makes them susceptable to all kinds of airborne chemicals that may set off a false alarm. However; beeping three times sounds like it may be asking for a new battery or it has indeed reached the EOL (Enyd of Life). Se...  more

      Michael Zike & Lynne Brooks April 2, 2021 We had the same problem with our 2016 Coachmen Sportsmen when we first got it. They had to replace the Monitor as it was defective.

      RV Mech Tech April 2, 2021 Kevin - one other thing that has not been mentioned yet is that some of the materials that they use to manufacture RV's can give off some faint traces of gas depending on what type of material it is - adhesives are a good example of this and odors can set...  more

      Tom & Barb April 2, 2021 I had this and determined it was a personal problem. Is anyone in the RV passing gas? 😂
