Finally got snow in our city. Took a pic of my rig, I wonder how high the snow will be before it becomes a problem on my rig?

LOL in the past few days I hear a faint noise when I go out and back in my house. I tried to find out where it was coming from and it was my trailer beeping. I figure it is the low battery signal in the smoke alarm. So now every time I go out and pass by my trailer, it is teasing me, asking me to take it out soon...I guess 2 more months before I could unwrap my trailer and replace the battery. I have updated my storing the trailer check list to take the battery out next time.

I already stop thinking about my trailer for the past several weeks and that beeping noise got me back to thinking about my next RV trip.

Winter please be over soon and I hope that beeping sound ends soon too! LOL

My guess?

The beeping noise will end when your main battery hits 6 volts and you need to buy a new one or the battery in your smoke or CO detector dies completely and leaks.

In either case, I would not wait till Spring.

The main battery of the trailer is disconnected and stored in my house. Can the CO beep w/o the main battery? If not then it is the smoke alarm for sure, which will beep until the 9 volt battery drains. With the snow on cover it will take too much work to silence my trailer. LOL

Both the CO and smokes use 9 volt alkaline batteries.

I did not know that, is this true in the Aframe? Will it damage the CO when the battery dies? Maybe I'll here 2 beeps soon.

I don't know of any smoke or CO detectors that are hard wired.
These days, who knows?

You won't have to worry about battery leaks until they stop beeping. There is considerable danger of damage from leaking batteries if you don't get those dead ones out promptly.

Having said that, smoke detectors are not ALL that expensive. Even the CO detector is not a bank breaker.

Looks like I don't have a CO detector in the trailer. I thought the LP detector that came with the rig does CO too. Well thanks for making me aware to get a CO detector for next time.
