CO2 Alarm Going Off

So we have not used our Columbus in about 2 months. It has been parked and closed up. I went out a couple days ago to move it into the shop and I heard the CO2 (I think that is what it is on the island) going off. I went inside and hit the reset button and it was fine. I moved it inside and plugged it in to 110. The next day I went out to the shop and it was going off again. I went inside and reset it again and opened all the windows. Hasn't gone off again since. What am I missing? Propane tanks are all shut off. I checked the stove and everything is off. What am I missing???

Did you Propane alarm? Turn off your tanks and see I it holds then. The alarms do go bad as well. They also will how false alarms if battery is low.
Just some things to check.

Ok the battery may have been low. I am going to let it sit plugged in and air out for another week and then I will close it up again and see if the alarm comes back on.

The alarm in my RV is mounted low to the floor and it is a dual alarm. Both propane and a CO alarm. If no motors running then you should suspect propane. So, check the battery but also check your propane..

Your battery is dead, or almost there. You can't just close it up and let it sit without disconnecting the battery. The CO detector by itself will kill it in a week or so.

It will sound when the battery gets low and again when powered back up.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. I have it inside now and so it will stay plugged into 110 24/7.

You don't have to do that. You've probably got a battery disconnect somewhere and, if you don't, they're cheap and easy to install. Should give you some more flexibility as to how you store it. But, yeah..it doesn't draw much power, but it'll slowly suck the life out of your battery.

Clarification

Charles.Maine, please do not take my comment as anything other than to clarify your comment. It is not a CO2 detector. CO2 is carbon dioxide which is not a toxic or poisonous gas. What you have is a CO detector. CO is carbon monoxide which I a poisonous gas. While they look similar, CO2 and CO, that extra oxygen atom makes all the difference.

Thanks for the clarification. All I know is the beeping is really annoying!!!
