Question Carbon Monoxide Sensor Question

This morning at 2:30 am the Carbon Monoxide sensor went off in our trailer and is still Beeping. The Propane is shut off, the trailer is hooked to shore power, Battery is at 2/3 power. Furnace, Fridge, Hot water tank are Off, Holding tanks are Empty. The only things that are powered are the lights and the radio; and they are all turned Off! Doors and Windows Are Open.

What caused it to go off and How do I shut it off? This is The First Time I have ever had a trailer that has a Carbon Monoxide Detector and our trailer is Brand new.

Thank you in advance for your answers!

Dick

pull it out of the wall and disconnect the 12V wires... sometimes they are faulty...

Thanks for the tip, but I will pass on that idea. It's a brand new trailer, we have only towed it 7 miles from the dealer to our house and slept in it for 1 1/2 nights.
I will be bringing it back to the dealer!

The sensor has just finally shut itself off! Dang that is a loud and Obnoxious Beeper!

Sometimes if batteries are low the alarm acts funky
Also sweeping the floor that happens to me .

Thank you for your answer.
2/3 rds. of battery power should not be low enough to make the sensor go off in the middle of the night, or at least a person wouldn’t think so.
I will ask the service department at the dealer tomorrow.

If your unit is hooked to shore power, the panel indicator lights for your battery should show "fully charged" even if the battery is less than fully charged. All 4 lights ON indicate the converter/charger is charging the battery. I suspect your battery charge is low. Maybe your battery disconnect switch is in Disconnect mode OR your 120vAC breaker for your converter is tripped/OFF OR your converter has failed. IMHO

Use a multi-meter and check your battery charge with the converter breaker off or the unit unplugged from shore power.

so by adding detail to your answers I am going to guess that maybe you slept in it and the furnace kicked on?

If so, then oils still left from manufacturing of the furnace burn off and create a gas that the detector sensed and went off... You can't be at odds at the detector for doing the job it was intended to do

Leave the doors/windows open and kick on the furnace again and let the last of that burn off before taking it back...

Thanks for your suggestions! We have slept in it for the past 2 nights. The first night we had the furnace on with no problem. Last night was warmer, so we turned the furnace off.

Yes we have a little dog. She was laying on the bed with us. It was only the second time she has been in the trailer and that was to sleep with us. In the door, on the bed and that's as far as she went.
