had the same problem with my unit when it was sitting in the dealers lot awaiting repair .. who i will never go back to ...
anywho .. that noise is from your smoke detector at the mid peak area ... towards the back of the unit ... cheap batteries are the culpurt .. as mine went off about 1.5 yrs after purchase ..
no issues .. dont worry ... the 9volt battery is probably frozen solid by now ... and should never leak through the casing ... if it ever leaks ...

i dont think i have ever seen a leaking 9vlt in my life ... and trust me ... i had alot of radios in my earlier life ..

Are you sure? Sometimes they are "co-located" in the same unit.

.....still beeping....gives me a smile when I hear it. I'll check if the smoke alarm have both when I uncover my rig this spring.

We had a major snow storm yesterday and the weatherman said that the last time we had this was 2008. After yesterday's snow storm:

Well if we have a couple of snow storm days, I can imagine my rig will be covered completely.

My A126 beeped most of last winter, was the smoke alarm. Removed the smoke alarm battery this winter, no beeps.

Smoke detector is on the rear roof panel. The CO detector is down by the power center and includes the LP Detector

That is what I thought, thanks for the confirmation. I have a CO detector at home and it has a life of 5 years only, I wonder if the one on our rig have the same limitation and have to be replaced in the future.

Good question. Most home CO units have a limited life span so I would imagine campers do as well.

Just a reminder to check your stored batteries if they require charging. I have over 8 SLA batteries and I have to top up their charge. The trailer battery was down to 12.4v and after charging 12 hours it got up to 13.4v; after a day it settled to 13v:Click image for larger version

I used a slow charger and unplugged if after the charged light turned on. I'm paranoid of over charging the batteries. I have wrecked 2 of my ebike batteries because the auto shut off failed.

Remember to recycle your dead SLA batteries

Almost 5 months since my last trip and all I could do is wait for the snow to melt, plan my next trips and buy stuff for the RV: Click image for larger version

On the trips I do want to store this GEN in my SUV or on the roof. It is over 50 lbs so putting it in the front storage will add too much weight and I'm on max tongue weight limit already. Is it ok to put it in the trailer? Where do you put it safely?

I think thehamguy1 ordered this GEN last month, have you tried/test it out and any tips unpacking/starting it?

Maybe 2 more weeks before I could unwrap my rig, hopefully no surprises!
