Angry Restless night-Help! LPG/Co alarm going off all night!

We are on our third trip with our 2011 Jayco Eagle HT Superlite 26.5 RLS. We absolutely love it. Traded up from a Keystone Cougar 24.4 in 12/11. However, on two separate trips, last night included, we were kept awake by the SafeTAlert CO/LPG alarm going off and on all night. The first two times we got up to check to make sure there were no leaks and that there was plenty of ventilation to avoid CO. After the first time we had the dealer service department check for propane leaks to make sure there wasn't a problem. No LPG leaks. It is summer and we are camping with full hook ups, so no open flame - no CO.

Anyone else have this problem? We are ready to cut the wires and throw the thing out.

Take it off the wall and check behind it for the manufacture date. These have a five year life and if it had sat in the dealers or factory shelf for very long it may be already expired.

If it is a date that should not be expired yet then contact the alarm company, like Kidde, and if it is malfunctioning then they may replace it free or at a reduced cost.

I had one that was failing in my S&B and they replaced it. WM did not have any that were not over 2 years old on the shelf so I ordered one from the manufacturer and it was only 4 months old. Cost a little more but worth the extra life.

I think it is the brand of alarm. I had the same thing happen on my 2011 Eagle Super Lite and the date was still good. Dealer replaced it under warranty. Now with this 2012 it has happened twice already. Like you I have never been able to find any leaks.

It has always been the LP alarm that has tripped...never the CO alarm.

It should be under warranty and replaced without question.

Thanks all....we'll talk to the dealer. What is interesting is that it only goes off in the middle of the night. Figures.

It Should also detect Methane. Mine is doing the same thing two weekends in a row. There is a light odor under the kitchen sink area. I suspect a bad seal on the black tank allowing gas to accumulate in this cabinet then tripping the detector. Dealer Contacted we will see what happens..

Hi, I was wondering if you have any thing you don't like about your 26.5 rig? I am thinking of upgrading to this size 5th wheel. I currently own a TT. Does the slantes ceiling in the bedroom bother you at all?

Maybe get two of them - if both go off at same time must be real alert... If only one goes off then it probably is a false alarm for some reason. Unplug that guy and worry about it in the morning...
