Low battery alert on Safe T Alert alarm
We just returned from a 14 day dry camping trip to the Adirondacks - waterfront, just fantastic except for the low battery alert that went off on 3 different occasions, twice while I was in the shower. Scared the heck out of one of our dogs and annoyed the DW no end.
My battery tester showed over 12.1 available (OK range) when the alarm let loose. I run 2 series 24 deep cycle, but not hooked together. With my generator on, I charge one thru the camper and concurrently charge the other one thru a battery charger. As one weakens I manually switch over. I ran the generator about 4 hrs. per day out of a permissible 5.
This also happened twice on a previous 7 day trip. I e-mailed SafeTAlert at that time, but I only have so many years left in me waiting for a reply. The alarm is a combo. CO and Gas alarm.
Thoughts are to: 1) replace unit with the type my old camper had (propane only w/ separate CO alarm); 2) wire the batteries together - will this help?; 3) disable the alarm - only way now is to completely disconnect the battery.
The camper has led lights, but my model has a cooling fan for the fridge that runs a lot and I wonder what kind of draw this carries.
Thanks for any advice.
