Our first trip that we actually turned on the hot water heater caused the alarm to trip. We were at 6000ft. I turned the heater off. Another A-frame owner came wandering by (for mutual admiration). He said the same thing had happened to him. He reset and the heater/water heater worked fine rest of the trip. He said he had repeats once in a while when lighting the hot water heater at the beginning of a trip. I then reset my alarm, restarted the hot water heater, and never have had a problem since.
As delivered, I had a propane leak where the regulator hose connects to the frame pipe (outside) - but this was detected by smell, not by the inside detector. Dealer located the fitting that was leaking and corrected under warranty.
I do turn the propane off at the tank valves (we have dual tanks) when towing or stored in the garage.

camping Colorado one weekend at a time
PS Last weekend was camping in Lincoln, Nebraska - a small A-frame among the big boys. They were all fascinated with how fast and easily we set up.
