co2 /lp sensor

CO2/Lp sensor is too sensitive. It seems to go off for no reason. Any comments? Looking for solutions other than disconnecting the unit or taking out the fuse.

Ugh. Mine too, but only when I'm running of batteries, not shore power. Same for you?

Clean thoroughly to ensure no dust on sensor.

I had the same problem and replaced the sensor. No problems since.
The safety-freaks who regulate the installation encourage users to disconnect the darn things. Unlike a smoke sensor that runs on a 9 volt battery or alarms that have a time limit, the lp/co sensor is wired to the aux battery(ies) and will sound continuously. Anyone alive would be woken up within seconds, so not having a timer to limit the alarm to a minute or two is crazy.

Except in the case that you have been out and about playing when the sensor went off. If the alarm was timed you could have missed it and walked back in to your rig unawares.
