Alarm keeps going off - help!

We have a brand new Rockwood Roo 233S, and went camping with it two weekends ago - everything worked great. It is now parked in the backyard and since this morning, the alarm (I think it is the CO alarm but I guess it could be the smoke alarm - not sure) keeps going off. The propane is off, and the battery is dead. Any ideas on what the problem is?

Also, we just received the license plates - where do we attach them?

Thanks!

CO/LP detector will operate when battery is low, charge battery up....also license plate should go at the back of trailer below driver side red brake light....

Thank you - I just figured out the alarm/battery thing, and now we know where to put those plates!

So now you know that it takes about two weeks for your battery to run down. The alarms are telling you that. Put the battery on a charger for a hard charge. Then do one of two things if you are not going camping for awhile.
1) keep it plugged in to keep the battery charged
2) disconnect the battery so it will not run down.

It may be a good idea to put a 'battery disconnect switch' on your unit.

According to literature features, there should be a battery disconnect somewhere....

It is probably out on the tongue by the battery on the frame.

Your disconnect is on the tongue behind and under the tanks, in front of the battery.

Another example of a poor PDI by a dealer.
A basic thing that should've been shown to the customer.

That's for sure! I wish I was told about that. Driving home 1,700 mi. after taking delivery, I was woken up by the alarm going off at 3 am. It was snowing outside,a late season storm outside Denver. With 3" snow on my roof, I had no idea why the alarm was going off as I opened up windows to air out my RV. This happened to me several times at night boondocking, but not while using hook ups. I called my dealer the first time it happened and they couldn't give me an answer.
