"We had placed the carbon monoxide detector in a hallway opposite the bathroom and next to the room with the kitty litter box. Also, when my dog would run by and fart, the alarm would go off."
This is true! A repair facility had an RV in for this problem. The RV owner told the service manager it only happened on Saturday nights when they camped. After exhausting all of the usual, the tech asked what they did every Saturday, in detail.

The owner stated they always had steaks on Saturday night and the dog got the scraps. The tech asked where the dog's bed was in the RV. The owner stated right next to the CO detector.

Mystery solved!

I used to have a similar problem with my dear departed yellow lab cross, and my not-so-dear departed old pop-up. He liked sleeping beside the propane detector, and whenever he stretched, he would push his foot against the test button. I pulled out my hair searching for non-existent propane leaks that summer.

Read the instructions for the alarm. If you don't have them download them from the manufactures web site. When the alarm reaches the end of it's useful life (about 4 to 5 yrs) the alarm begins to sound to warn you it is time to replace. When you purchase a new one check the manufacture date to make sure it is less than 6 months old. A common problem is that when someone stores the TT for a long period of time no one will hear the warning alarms and when they begin using the TT again they are not aware that the alarm will no longer protect them.

So look at this pretty picture. I think I found my problem The crazy thing is look at the date. My trailer is a 2010. Why would they do that?

Next question, where and how do I replace it? Is this a standard size I can get on line or an RV dealer? Or is it model specific?

Anywhere, amazon, ebay or any online rv supplier and CW.

Don't forget to verify the replace by date. I bought one off ebay that was out of date and returned it.

I must have gotten a new, upgraded detector. It's the same model and part # as the original, but it's life doesn't start until the first time it's powered up. Then it internally counts down the 60 month life, and will inform you by chirping or flashing lights (don't remember exactly) when it's time is up. On the front it says: "Replace By - 60 Months". There's no replacement date listed. I bought it on Amazon a year or two ago.

I have more trouble with my smoke detector going off when cooking on the stove in the TT. I was coo,ingredients eggs last weekend and the eggs were not even done yet when the smoke alarms started chirping.

The one in our Forest River did that, every trip, first night, between 1 and 2 a.m. We never figured out why, but it did it two-three times before it stopped. It hasn't happened (knock wood) with the Jayco yet. If it does, I will be back to the dealer and begging for it to be fixed.

Do you have a dog that sleeps nearby the sensor? Ours always sets it off. Read it somewhere. After moving the woofers bed, I now have a new CO/Propane detector on standby when the once thought culprit actually stops working.
