Lostdog, thanks for the reply! Good idea on the fan. I think I'll go to WalMart and pick one up before we head out for the weekend. Are you thinking of replacing the detector? Seeing that your rig is also a 2011, I would assume we have the same model/manfac. of the LP detector.

Thought about replacing the detector but have you priced them? Way over a hundred bucks with the companion gas valve. It seems the detector that we have has an outdated valve and a new detector requires the new valve. Planned that way, maybe?

I know nothing about these units. What gas valve? Can your unit turn off the gas if it detects leakage? Don't think mine is wired like that but I guess I should look into it. (Rockwood 2306)

Both of the guys are in Class A m/h which have a ANSI tank fixed to the chassis. It must be fitted with an auto shut down when detector senses a leak in the cabin.

Mine went off when wife busted a jar of pickles. And again while repairing PVC pipe under drain with PVC glue. Apparently they detect any strong smell.

It does turn off the gas when it goes off. Look in your propane area and you will see a valve on the gas line that will have wires to it. If your battery switch is on then the valve will be really warm.

What is the cost of a complete new unit, they have a life span of app 5 years!

May have to replace mine

Mine has been screaming off/on for a few days. I have the TT plugged into the AC in the shed. No gas is turned on, nothing going on inside or out. Thought I'd check the battery on the tongue. Turned the power off, put a meter on the +/- terminals and it read 11.38. I figure the battery is dead or dying. So, I'll probably replace it with a deep cycle battery soon. The durn thing came brand new with a car battery! Didn't know any better until I started reading up on FRF that I had the wrong battery! Guess I got snookered by the dealer on that one.

Well, I pulled the alarm away from the wall and saw that it had a Rapunzel bunch of wires connected to the red/black wires of the alarm. Of course, if I were to replace the alarm, I'd hook it back the way it is now, with a big wire nut. But, can anybody say what/where all the other wires go to?
