Co2 alarm

I think I may have found a solution to the co2 alarm going off from the batteries gassing off. I mounted a 12 volt fan that blows across the batteries. This has been an ongoing problem for some of the Georgetown 350 ts. And it always goes off in the middle of the night! Have had the fan a couple of weeks now and no further problems.

would mind sharing a pic on how you mounted the fan?

I've only had that problem once and afraid might happen again.

I had the same problem and then a battery blow up.
Forest River replaced both batteries under warranty and checked the converter to make sure it was not over changing. In two years we have not had an other alarm.
I would have the batteries and the converter checked it should not be setting of the alarm.

I had the same problem but instead of installing a fan I switched to sealed marine deep cycle batteries. No more alarms and no more removing steps to add water frequently.

Bill planning to do the thing on my rig.
What batteries did you buy?
Sams club has on for about $119. Will be doing more research.

Iggy I don't remember the brand but its one of the majors. They are pretty much the same. I got the group 27 size Not the group 24. Mine are just the standard 27 sealed and were about the same price you mentioned. There are some very high priced super duty models but didn't think they were necessary. But I don't have the residential frig and I rarely boondock even overnight.
