I too have the same problem with my LP detector, hence the reason I am searching the forum today. Unlike Young Travelers, mine goes off for no reason. I recently went camping, while sleeping at night the detector went off. The funny thing was, I had not even turned on my propane as of yet. Aerosols don't make sense, as like I said, we had been sleeping for several hours already (although they had been used eariler in the day). The alarm continued to go off through out the entire camping trip. Very annoying to say the least!!! I now have the unit home and have disconnected the detector because it continues to go off. Any other ideas???

A thought on the oven thing...what if the oven warms the cabinetry and other materials in the RV causing them to outgass formaldehyde or other gasses and that's what sets of the alarm?

Kathy...make sure you are getting a full 12 volts to the detector as they will false on low battery voltage.

You may have to pull it off the wall (pop off the outer plate and 2 screws, mine is anyway). You will need to use a multi meter to check the voltage.

Maybe the sensors are fried.
