Mine went off while in Nashville the past week every time I opened the door. The heat was so bad that it set the alarm off!

The smoke alarm will go off if the house battery is low and/or the alarm itself is going bad. (and hair spray)

Mine would go off when house batteries would over charge due to bad battery.

The smoke detectors are not usually wired into house battery, (at least not in my last 3 campers). The CO/gas detector is.

Also some have an expiration date on them. Even though you have a 2016 unit doesn't mean it has a new detector. We bought a 2011 unit in 2010 and FR had put a LP detector that expired in 2009 in it.
