We purchased a 2011 Forest River Forester 3011 dsf in January 2011.
It all started in August 2011...
we had been having problems with our LP/CO Detector Combo Unit in our Forester 3011 DSF. The LP / CO detector kept going off at all hours. Took it in to the dealership twice to do tests for leaks, replacing combo unit, etc... No luck. We had followed all troubleshooting instructions from the manual, asked the company's rep for assistance & reached out to people in the Forest River Forum. We thanked everyone for their tips; but most of all to the person on the FR forum who told us to separate both units. Somehow, the LP/CO detector combo unit wasn't working properly in our motorhome; even with a brand new one that was put in. Finally, on the third time into the dealership in April 2012, we told them to separate both units & place them in different areas. We recently got back from a 6 week trip & it worked like a charm.

The problem continued...
Propane Detector went off for the first time since it was separated from the combo unit (April 2012).
We checked & follow through for any propane leaks. We have no pets, no aerosol sprays, no traffic giving off fumes, etc. No signs. It continued to go off 3 more times until we took out the fuse for the evening.

In the morning (10 am), we turned the propane off, we put the fuse back on; so the propane detector is back on.

We took the RV to get it serviced & the LP detector was replaced once again with a new one. We are so careful with our surroundings of what is causing it to go off. It's just not a good place to have an LP detector in a Forest River Forester 3011 dsf.
