I just turned off the battery disconect while I was writing this and the gas alarm started going off. We love the camper , guess we have alot to learn. I found a piece of paper that has parallax on it in all our paper work. the converter in it is a INTEL-POWER 9200 series 60 amp converter / charger . ADVICE NEEDED
I'm no expert whatsoever and like you, new to my trailer and this forum. I had a sort of similar problem. Took my new to me TT in to get WD hitch installed. When I unplugged from house power propane alarm went off. If I turned outside light on (or off?) alarm stopped. Discovered later + battery cable was corroded right off the terminal & making sporadic contact at best. I also had been wondering why my 12 volt lighting wasn't working properly! Battery was toast too.
Anyway a wild guess is that the propane alarm sounds if it has no power source. Maybe has an internal rechargable battery to do so???
So I'm wondering if you have a bad battery and/or when you did the battery disconnect thing the alarm going off is normal? When you think of it that would be a very useful feature as if it loses all power and you don't know it and you have a gas leak that's bad!
With you I will wait for the real experts to answer your question.
