I had no clue the had a shelf life. Ours went off during the summer (at night of course) and was able to silent it but the last few trips out it was fine while camping just whenever I disconnect shore power to hitch back up the alarm goes off immediately and dosent shut off until a few hrs later. Looks like I'll be ordering a new one.

It's quite a coincidence this topic came up. We were winterizing ours, and after we finished, our alarm went off. Reset it, and 10 minutes later, it went off again. Not on shore power, so I thought the battery was low. It was not. There wasn't enough time to blow it out, so disconnecting the battery solved the problem for now. The date on the back is Sept. 2011, in a 2012 unit. I'm thinkin' it gets a new one also.

I have heard about blowing it out but that method has not helped any of the two that have gone bad on me in the last years. It is just the cost of camping. LOL

Mine sits right next to the entrance door and likely gets a lot of exposure to all kinds of dust, dog hair, moisture, etc.
