co2 detector still beeping

Having problems with Co2 detector beeping problem. We replaced it with a new one and still having the same problem. Our trailer is a 2017 and it is located below the refrigerator.

Any suggestions?

I think you are talking about the propane monitor. Here is a link to a discussion on it.

propane sensor?

co2

I have an 2002 Holiday Rambler TT that has a combo co2/propane detector. How would co2 be present in trailer?

Assuming there are no heaters... etc inside that burn fuel.

Maybe outside generator, truck exhaust coming inside?

You may have a CO/Propane detector. Every breath we exhale contains CO2, is what plants need to survive, and is always in the atmosphere. CO (carbon monoxide) is the product of incomplete hydrocarbon combustion and is toxic to us.

If you have a range/oven that is not burning propane correctly, it can produce CO. That's one of the main reasons for always running a vent fan while cooking.

I'm sure she is talking about the propane detector - I have had it alarm enough to have figured out why. The post I linked discusses several of the reasons - the oddist is the dog farts.

Is it going off with all the propane turned off and after a good ventilation of the trailer? If so, the detector is probably faulty. If not...

Start with the possibility that you have CO or Propane leaking. (I think there is a way to tell the difference but can't remember for sure, on the monitor. Different beep? Lights?) At home, the solution is to call the fire department and have them check. My sister recently had a house remodeled and one of their first nights in it the CO detector went off. And yes- they had a CO build up due to some faulty gas lines (can't recall the details.) I'd call the fire department and if they can't check a trailer, they can tell you who could.

Ours started beeping once and it turned out to be that the connection at the battery was corroded and not making a good connection but the solar panel was giving it just enough voltage to beep to tell us the voltage was low.
