CO sensor going off

At the end of my two night first trip out, when I was packing up, the CO sensor started going off. It was just after I switched the fridge from propane to DC while lowering the roof. When we got home, it had stopped. It's this likely due to low battery or real CO?

I would suspect low battery, especially if it shuts up as soon as you plugged in the tow vehicle and the tow vehicle was running.

Mine did that till I connected to shore power. Think its low battery like in your house when battery is low.

I agree; probably low power. But a warning. If you use a heavy duty type cleaner to clean the floor it will go off.

Co detectors will function like smoke alarms. If it is/was an intermittent alarm only sound once every 15-30 seconds or so, I would think battery. If it sounded constantly I would think alarm and you need to get your rig checked out for CO.

That has not been my experience, I have had it go off at home when I had not been camping and everything had been shut off and not running for several weeks. (That is how I learned of the "evil parastic energy vampire" drains on the battery). And when it sounded, it was loud and continous...... once it had power, silent.
