If your 12v is that low, I would suspect the converter is not putting out or you have some corroded connections. I think that is a long shot when the ac power is on and the aircond is running. I would check the volt at the alarm unit if it is at least 12.5v dc, low volt is not the problem.
While you have it out to check the voltage, verify all the wires on the back have tight connections.

Mine did it when I left my old tennis shoes by the door where the sensor is.

We have had an issue with our CO2/propane detector beeping for seemingly no reason as well. We have had it in for inspection twice, and everything comes back squeaky clean. The first time, they gave us a new one, but it happened again. It happens when there is not heat/stove/hot water heater running....just out of the blue.....incredibly annoying! Sorry I can't be of more help, but we can't get ours to stop!

I think we are talking about a CO detector, not a CO2 detector. My Designer has a combination CO/Propane detector that was out of date when I bought it. My dealer replaced it with a new one and it failed after 3 years. The failure mode was it going off in the middle of the night. Typically around 3:00am. It was replaced after a thorough check for leaks and no problems since.

I don't think these detectors are very high quality so infant mortality seems to be frequent. I just wish the combination CO/Propane detector was cheaper when it does fail.

All I can tell you is this, my microwave was going off "ONLY AT NIGHT" driving me NUTS, and it sounded like it was coming from the alarm. Check for bags of potato chips, bread or anything that may be stored in there, good luck!!

Yup mine does it as well worst thing is I'm a plumber trained to look for leaks. I know that nothing is wrong. The one thing that seemed to work is cracking the exhaust fan in the bathroom and turn the fan on. I have wondered if my dog has been laying up against it.

Mine did the same thing at the beginning of the season. I contacted the manufacturer of the alarm because the camper is only 1 1/2 years old. The sensors work by absorbing the gas. Once they detect the gas they become more sensitive. They also told me to make sure that there wasn't any harsh chemicals stored in the cabinet were they detector was located (There wasn't). They said that some cleaners will set the alarm off if it is too close to the detector. Mine would only go off in the middle of the night while everyone was sound asleep no matter if the what was on. It went off one night while we were connected to shore power with the ac and furnace off. The manufacturer replaced the detector under warranty so make sure to give them a call. No more walk up calls thus far.
