Beeping in my closed popup. Any ideas?

Any idea what's causing beeping in my closed Rockwood 1640ltd? Was boondocking last week and pretty sure battery is low.

Either the LP/CO detector or smoke detector.

I would have opened it to check everything before I posted this question.

Heavy Fog will cause some smoke detectors to go off if door is left open, happened to me the other day. The sensor picks up the water particles and thinks its smoke.

Well, now you need to open and check it out. If it the LP/CO detector checking the flashing light on what the warning is. If propane is off, most likely it will be flashing low battery.

Curious. Do these "smoke detectors" detect everything but smoke?

Its probably the Smoke Detector chirping to let you know to replace the battery. Most chirp once every 20-30 seconds when its time. Be aware that they are not wired in to the campers 12 or 120 volt systems. they have 9volt batteries in them

OP says it all. If the battery is low and it is still connected to the 12V system ( no battery cutoff) then the Co/Propane detector is sending a low voltage alarm. Charge the battery and add a cut off switch or disconnect the negative battery terminal. Just remember to reconnect the next time you hook up as battery powers the break-away system.

My propane detector beeps when the battery dies, maybe that's all it is.

The LP/CO detector is hardwired to the battery. The smoke detector is battery operated. I always take off the pos terminal off the battery if I am parked for more that a week. Once you are plugged in for a bit and charged, everything should clear itself.

So, I plugged in the camper to power, never opened it but beeping stopped. Low battery alarm, I don't have a 7 pin connector on my truck but use a converter to make the 4 pin a 7 pin. When I'm driving connected its not charging . I think that was it.

That beeping signifies that the "Self Destruct" sequence has been initiated. You have 10, 9, 8,........... oops, too late.

It is the CO2 detector. The battery is weak causing it to beep. Disconnect your battery when storing the camper.

I let my 1978 nova with no converter warm up the engine with the window open on the other side of the camper (2504s) and it set off the CO alarm ! Jay

Mine did the same thing when I kept it in the garage. Low battery charge caused the beeping. Still miss that popup
