According to Kiddie Carbon Monoxide:

  • End-of-Life warning will occur every 30 seconds
  • Replacing the battery WON'T STOP the beep
  • The beep will ONLY STOP when the alarm is out of power

The CO monitor uses the TT's battery for its source of power. If your battery is usually dead how does it operate your trailer brakes while traveling. If you pull your main fuse by the battery(s) after each camping trip and your battery is charged from the return trip, it will maintain its voltage for months. If it has been dead more than a few times it probably will not hold a charge. Probably time to replace it and start a battery maintenance program.
