While at an RV show this past winter I happened to catch a FR rep and mentioned it to him. He said that they got in a bad batch and my trailer fit in that time frame. FR replaced it for free.
Sorry to reply after all this time, but I had a similar problem with my 2011 Georgetown detector going off in the middle of the night. My dealer couldn't find the problem, so I endured it for the past 3 years, figuring something was setting it off. Recently, I replaced it at my own expense and now the detector is fine. Do you know the time frame for this "bad batch"? I believe the old detector was manufactured in November or December, 2010.
I just checked my past emails and noticed that I commented on this very same problem to the FR warranty rep last year when I was dealing with the orange hydraulic line issues. At that time, he didn't mention anything about a "bad batch" but claimed it was likely an issue of "low battery voltage", which it wasn't. I wish I could prove fraud.
