Re: high pitch noise from LP detector

On my last fishing trip with my son and grandson, they both mentioned hearing a high pitched sound inside the trailer. I don't hear it, I suffer from tinnitus and hear a high pitched sound ALL the time. Patti is usually very sensitive to such sounds but hasn't mentioned it so far. If she begins to notice it and we can verify it's coming from the propane detector, we'll have to see about getting a replacement.

Re: high pitch noise from LP detector

My detector has spontaneous alarmed on a couple of occasions, and it seemed to occur when the trailer is completely shut (all vents and windows closed). When I left the maxx fan vent open, it didn't go off. Reace thought the alarm might be reacting to volatile organics being given off in the trailer.

Last night I installed a full-lenth mirror on the bathroom door, and when I came out this morning the alarm was going off. The trailer was closed tight and I had spray-painted the mirror frame a couple of days before, making me think Reace has it right...the alarm is reacting to the volatile fumes given off by the mirror frame.


There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who don't.
