How would that work? The detector would have to be connected to some kind of electrical servo to control a valve on the propane system?
Granted, I haven't been over every inch of my propane system, but I certainly have not seen anything like that on my trailer. And no member here has ever mentioned anything like that as far as I've seen.
As was mentioned, these detectors do have a "shelf life". And there could be some problem with your 12V system that's not allowing the detector to get the voltage it requires? They tend to go off when the battery gets too low; I hear them in my storage lot all the time.
