Cavagna is the mfg on the regulator. I think they were in here a while back and wanted to see a couple of them. I haven't heard anything about it since...so maybe it was a bad batch???

I found out this weekend that roach and ant spray will do it too.

Had to turn on/open the bathroom vent fan to clear the fumes out, and the alarm turned itself off. That little puppy is loud.

There's a button on the front that will silence the alarm.

The button only works for a short time. If it is time to be replaced then it will sound again soon and loud and for some reason in the wee hours if the morning. Lol.

I didn't contact the dealer or forest river because our camper is a 2011 that we bought used. I was surprised that the replace date said 2010 and it was supposed to last five years. Will see how the new one holds up. But it was very easy to replace. Kind of like the smoke alarms in my house.

Correct. I was referring to using the button to silence a false alarm due to something like an aerosol can setting it off (per the post right above mine).

Some of you are probably getting tired of seeing me post this.... But for those of you that haven't seen it, for your own safety please just spend the 30 bucks and get a detector with a digital read out. It's the only true way to know exactly what's going on. You can physically see the number increasing and know there is a problem before it gets to dangerous levels.

the latest - I have heard nothing from the Forest River warranty rep. I sent a long email detailing the whole story. Having the system checked this Saturday by the dealer (ugh!) It's the principal of the thing. A brand new RV should not have these problems

I have verified that the coach battery voltage and water levels are not the cause of our 4 alarms. Propane was isolated at the tank so there is no question in my mind that the gas detector/alarm unit is defective.

The latest and last update - Dealer found no leaks in the gas system and offered to order a new gas detector even though there is "nothing wrong with it" - funny they had one in stock last weekend when it was suggested that I fix it myself. I never heard from the FR warranty rep. So we are picking up the RV on Monday and driving it to a competitor to be sold on consignment. If this is what it takes to be an RV enthusiast, I don't have the time or patience for it. Good luck to all of you though.
