LP detector- 2016 17BH Clipper

The alarm just randomly goes off and with no real reason. Is it due to the placement of the sensor near the hot water tank?

Just want to be safe but it's like crying wolf.

Does it just go off when a gas appliance is running on propane?

Does it go off when plugged into shore power, or just on battery?

It goes off when we use a coffee pot, when we run some hot water, and out of thin air with the windows open.

Plugged in at the site

Sounds like a power related issue. Is the battery in good shape?

I was wondering that myself. Had to manually get my electric jack off the hitch when we got here last night. It won't travel up or down. Maybe battery is pooped

Try unhooking the battery and taking it to a local auto parts store and have them load test it.

It doesn't sound like you have a propane leak. Maybe it's just a bad detector,,,,but DON'T IGNORE IT!!!

I had this happen once when I plugged in but forgot to flip the breaker at the post. Didn't realize my battery wasn't charging...

We had the same thing happen recently, and it was because of batteries going bad. New batteries - no more problem.
