I will add I have seen more complaints LP detector failures in the past year than in the previous 10. QC must be too expensive and the manufactures are foregoing that step. Not to mention they a likely using cheap Chinese components now.
Same here, replaced it, problem gone.

Problem with CO/LP Detector

I had the same problem with our CO/LP Detector , my wife couldn't even use hair spay it would go off.So I cut the wire and put a switch on it so when she uses hair spay or cleaning product I just turn the switch off till air clears then turn it back on.

At 1.5 years ownership of my 2012 my detector was going off in the middle of the night all the time. Never during the day. No LP tanks were even hooked to the RV at the time. I cut the power wire to the detector and told them to replace it when I traded the unit in a week later.
This seems to be quality problem with the detectors as I've read about similar problems on other RV forums.

The LP/CO detector in our trailer went off repeatedly while on a road trip to the Pacific NW this past August. I wound up disconnecting it as a temporary fix. Took it out this morning and went to the nearest Jayco dealer (Crestview RV, Buda, TX), about 40 miles away. Since I didn't buy the trailer there, and did not have the VIN, license, etc., with me, they told me they could not cover it under warranty. (Took delivery 3 Apr 2013, so it should be under warranty.) Anyway, I bought a new one (Atwood Protechtor, for $115.49 plus tax) and brought it home and just installed it. (the Dealer wanted me to bring the trailer in so they could do it, but it was far faster for me to remove/install than it would have been to drag the trailer to the dealer, plus they likely would have taken a week or more to make the fix.)

Anyway, I'll mail the old unit plus the receipt for the new one to Jayco, and see if they'll cover it under warranty. I'll post back when I hear.

Jayco likes to get calls about this stuff. They should handle it.

Funny, my co detector went off this morning for no apparent reason. Stopped alarming before I could disable it.

Just today received a check from Jayco to cover the cost of replacing this LP detector, no questions asked or raised, just the replacement cost. Thanks, JAYCO!
