No pets, but yes I do have sprays, but no aerosols.

I just left it and went back to the house. It's parked under and open air shelter we built for it.

The camper is less than 2 years old. The new detector was put in in June. So the new one should not b expired.

They should have a date on them. I had one that was going off periodically. I went to camping world and bought a new one, came home to install and it was outdated. Make sure you check the date on the back.

Ditto - on our second shakedown trip (TT only about 6 weeks old) we were dry-camping at the beach and the dang thing blasted at 5:30am Sunday. Reason? Low battery! Lesson-learned? Keep those batteries topped-off ... so we bought our generators. Our TT is now at the 1-year mark and since we do a lot of dry-camping AND many campgrounds restrict or prohibit generator use, we're going to get deep-cycle batteries and move the current batteries to the tent-trailer our son uses. As an FYI, we keep a standalone 9-volt battery detector in the TT as a sanity-check/back-up.

+1 for Hattie. Our CO2/Propane detector is also our most reliable battery level indicator. Starts chirping as soon as the 12V starts getting depleted. If it gets really low, the detector will still scream while no other 12V appliance will run.

Same problem here...the first MTI alarm would sound off at the slightest thing. I cut the wire because our dogs would go completely nuts (barking, whining, streaking...) and even though the alarm says there is a mute button, that never worked! Last week I had a new one installed. Today the power at the KOA campground went out (along with the whole neighboring area). Within 5 minutes the thing went nuts and the dogs with it. I came to the conclusion that battery depletion (even though showing strong on panel) was the problem. Once I started the motorhome engine, the alarm stopped. Go figure! I sent an email to MTI asking if they had any solutions. Will post what I hear if they respond. If anyone else has used a different solution, please post what you find that works.
