So far so good, everything is working normal since plugging the trailer into electricity last night.
So I guess the battery was running low and needed to be charged.
Don't know if the battery was fully charged when we picked the trailer up or not ( we are assuming it was).
The trailer was delivered from the factory to our dealer and we picked it up the following week, so it is about as new as it can get.
We have only had the trailer plugged in a few times since we picked up and even at that probably not for more than 15-20 minutes at a time.
We also have never shut the battery disconnect switch off, so after we leave it connected to the electricity for a few days we will try shutting off the battery.

CO2 may be doing its job! Had same situation on Forest River motorhome and kept blaming the sensor. Started having what I thought might be a propane gas leak so took it to local Camping World for repair to test for gas leak. Turns out no gas leak, but the batteries underneath the steps which are in close proximity was leaking sulfuric acid which has the same smell as propane gas. $400 later two new batteries and smell and CO2 alarm is gone. Whether it is propane or battery leak both smell like rotten eggs and are poisonous to living creatures. Good luck and be safe.

Be careful. We have a Vibe and ours went off last fall. We brought it to the dealer who couldn't find anything. We started it this spring and it went off again. The service manager asked my husband to look at the furnace. When he couldn't find anything he told him to look at the vent.

We have no vents for the heating system at all. They are coming out tomorrow night to fix it but really make sure they check everything. We are so lucky my son sleeps with the window cracked and the detector did its job.
