Co2/LP detector

Have a question I have a hw276 and the co2 alarm went off. Didn't have anything LP running but my black holding tank is full and a bad odor is noticed. Ceiling vent n fan was shut n off. Could the gases from the holding tank cause the alarm to sound.

What's the charge level of your battery?

Alarm sounded for about 30 sec. That's it.

I had spray deodorant set my old one off.

I could never determine what was setting it off, propane or CO. So, I replaced it with just a propane detector (same company, same size, fit right in), and installed a CO detector up higher on the front of the sink/stove liftover.

Propane is heavier than air, CO is lighter; never made sense to have the CO detector down an inch or two from the floor.

I have had mine go off, not sure if it was CO or propane, when stacking coolers right in front of them on our 276. As soon as I moved the coolers blocking the panels, the alarm turned off. Since then nothing goes in front of them blocking any sort of airflow.

Not sure if that's similar to your experience, but hope it helps!

Dan

My co aged out and I replaced it with a co/smoke detector then installed a new propane detector with a on/off switch so I can power it down when I'm not useing the coach(storage) helping to cut back on battery draw etc... it is now part of my pre-travel and Post-travel checklist..

Fishhook well we had shoes piled in front of it and that was the first thing u moved after opening the panel on the door. After looking in to everything we noticed one if the knob on the stove were turned so I'm thinking it was leaking LP. Thanks btw
