Unhappy CO sensor

Today my CO sensor started going off, and actually still is....
I had a GAS leak about 2 weeks ago, so gas has been shut off till it is repaired..
So there is no leak.

I tried shutting off all the breakers, still sounding off.. it has drained the battery down as well...

Suggestions?

The CO sensor is wired direct to the battery you need to disconnect the battery from the trailer the sensor sometimes goes off if the battery gets to low. Might be going bad tho that is what it sounds like you may need a new one.

Geeesh 2 trips and its going low...
Calling the dealer in the morning.... First time this has happened...

Is there a battery cut off on the 6504?
Or just manually remove the cables?

Thanks!!

I don't know if your model trailer has a cutoff switch but you can just pull the positive side of the battery cable off and make sure your not plugged into shore power as the converter will keep putting 12V power to the CO detector.

Took mine out of the wall and disconnected one of the wires until I got the replacement. I was surprised to learn how short the life was for it.
