HELP! LP / CO detector

We have a 2011 Forest River Forester-32 ft Class C & love it. But, we have one problem... The LP / CO detector keeps going off. We've followed all troubleshooting instructions from manual. Has anyone had this same problem?

The LP detector and the CO detector are 2 entirely different things. The LP detector usually mounted near the floor in the kitchen areak, while the CO detector should be mounted high on a wall near the bedroom area.

The unit in my 2104 Mini Lite is a combination CO2~propane alarm. It's a Safe T Alert Dual Sensor Model 35-742. We primarily boondock, so I pull the fuse on it during the day to save the batteries, and energise it when we're sleeping. We haven't had any problems with false alarms so far. Do you have a dog, because flatulence can energise the alarm.

Correct, any foul gas can set it off. A dog or a person can cause it!

In 2011 Forester it is more than likely a combo unit mounted near the step well. I have heard of bad ones.

Hmmm, I stand corrected.....or actually I am sitting.

Didn't know such puppies existed.

When that happens it is time to replace it. There is no such thing as repair.

I sent mine to the company today. The LP was going off even with the propane turned off. I just call them and they gave me a return number. I marked it to see if the send the same one back or a new one. LOL
