Thanks tudinator
Sounds like these things ARE extremely sensitive!

you should have a good 3-stage converter/charger, so you don't need to disconnect the battery. just keep an eye on the water level once in awhile.
Thanks Dan~

Your info is a big help! Obviously my first TT...

Last September, I bought it on a Friday and hauled it off the lot Saturday. My "orientation" was a quick tour of the locks, storage, fridge, microwave and stove. The sales guy handed me a big folder packet and said, "It's all in there". Lol !!! Not quite!

I bought it from a motorhome consignment place in Texas, and they only had these to satisfy insurance regulation requirements. Listed for $17,000; they sold it to me for $9,700, so I'm not complaining one bit!

I'll hang around the forum and try to learn more. Again, thanks for the info.

I have a 27ft BHS Revere and the only alarm I have in mine is for Co2 and a low propane alarm, other then that, there's no other alarms in ours. Is it one of those 2?

If you have a trailer, that is no older than 5 years or so, it must have a smoke alarm, usually on the ceiling, near the main sleeping quarters. It must have a CO detector, usually up high on wall near the kitchen area. It must have a propane detector, usually down low, near the floor, again near the kitchen. The propane detector is also wired to the trailer battery for power. The other detectors usually have there own batteries. All of these must be working before a dealer can sell the trailer. I have never seen a trailer with a "low propane" alarm, as mentioned in post #13. This is especially true of Shasta, and we sell those and I have seen many.

Remember, good idea to take inventory, and replace all your detector batteries at the start of every camping season, which I hope our next one is soon.

NO!!! It's not a tank alarm!

For me, it's a freakin' "tank" alarm cause it always goes off when my tanks get full!!!

Any solutions suggested???

I understand these things can be sensitive to certain chemicals used for cleaning and such, but body soap and toothpaste??? C'mon! Is this what is causing the alarm to go off???

Again, I'm looking for solutions/suggestions.

It's not a tank alarm, but it always goes off when the tanks are 2/3 full.

I have had better success with quick flushing and fast emptying.

I emptied the tanks Thursday night as I was leaving to go home for the weekend, the alarm went off only once... I reset and it never went off again.
