have you checked the battery? that's also a symptom of a low 12v battery.

It doesn't matter if it's plugged in to shore power, running off the generator or running off the battery. If the battery is low it will beep once about every couple minutes. It's going off with repetetive loud beeping that can only be quieted by holding the reset button. I've even tried completely disconnecting the propane tanks. Doesn't matter.

Try sleeping through that! The only way to get through the night is to pull the fuse (but then the heater and interior lights won't work!). Total nightmare. Makes the RV completely unusable.

I had propane detector do that happen to me too one night while camping. I ended up taping something over the reset button to hold it in order to get it to stop. It did it again another time but has not done it again.

I asked the RV repair guy about it and he said that it was a common occurrence and that the all he could do is try to replace it in case it was defective. Apparently many different things will set it off included the fumes that new form gives off and spray cans. He also said that he wasn't suggesting it but that many people have cut the power to the detector.

Interesting side note. I did get a propane leak the year before last. I did not know what a propane leak smelled like. I thought that I had camped over sulfur water cause it smelled like rotten eggs. Then I read something on like that was what a propane leak smelled like. Well the interesting part is that the stupid propane detector never made a sound apparently because the leak was outside. I could smell it inside as we sleep right over the propane bottle where the hose was leaking
