I have an alarm going off in my camper?

I have a 2012 Grey Wolf travel trailer that we bought used last year. I charged the battery, but when the power is not hooked up, there is an alarm going off at the breaker panel. Any help will be appreciated.

In our trailer the LP detector is very close to the converter panel. Like inches way. Are you sure the alarm is from the converter? LP detectors will alarm when the DC voltage supplied to them is low.

Lets you know your house battery is low.

I keep our trailer plugged into shore power via an ordinary but heavy extension cord. It's 100 ft long. Can't run the AC but it keeps the batteries topped off.

I've had it go off before when I spray for ants, it's located on the floor about 10 feet from the panel.

The LP detectors have an expiration date and will go off if it is out of date
