We are camping for the week, and I just want this thing to stop going off.
Actually on shore power the batteries are on "trickle charge" or a little more than trickle. As they age they put off more gas, like hydrogen sulfide which will make its way past the steps and cause the propane alarm to go off. Even more than just in storage. Another cause I found with the oven on low or pilot, enough gas can accumulate from poor combustion to set off the alarm, happened just last night! Both events being alarmed is a good thing.
