Ours is also mounted right next to the stove... Might be the issue. CO detector is above the bed.. Thought co was heavier than air, shouldn't it be on the floor area?

CO is about the same weight as air, propane is heavier.

"It has just become our routine to pull the 9v as soon as the stove starts then plug it back in once we are done."

X2 but this is after the first attempt at cooking.

We do not use the stove or oven.

So, no real issues with the one we have.
This for us to. Maiden voyage the damn thing went off at 2am. Scared the crap out of me and was ready to yank the family out of bed until I realized I didn't smell any smoke and a quick walkaround revealed nothing. Wife was not happy that morning.

I cooking in the trailer all the time. It has never gone off. I usually have the ceiling fan on when we are cooking. The bathroom fan stays on low too. That would be really annoying to remove the batteries each time you cook😊

how big / what is your rig? Our TT's is mounted within two feet of the stove and we have 7 foot ceilings. My guess you have a 5er if you have a ceiling fan? I winder if that makes the difference... Ours is 33 feet vs a 40 footer.

There is no hybrid TT big enough for a ceiling fan , so that info isn't realistic for us hybrid owners.

The fantastic fans will pull air in through the range vent even with the fan on...so, out goes the battery when the range is on and windows are closed.
