We need additional information. Is the alarm by the floor or mounted on the ceiling?
What model FR do you own?
The alarm is either smoke or CO / propane.

Check/change the batteries in all of your detectors.

The periodic screech is a low battery indicator.

CO alarm is hardwired.

Just a thought....if it has levelers won't that alarm go off if the coach is tried to start with jacks down? Maybe it's a malfunction with that alarm.

We had the leveler alarm go off one time going down the road. Turned out we had a leak on one of the levelers and the alarm wet off. The sound was very hard to tell were the sound was coming from. The sound is almost Omni directional, the only way I could tell what it was is when I saw the lights on the panel flashing.

Do you have a dog passing gas? Or a husband? Because that will set off an alarm..
