Thanks for reminder.

You do not have solar, right? Our reading with solar is above 13 when stored (no cover). I wonder where others are with solar.

I visited the trailer in storage yesterday and discovered that yes, indeed, the propane detector turns off with the battery switch off. Don't know why I thought otherwise...

And the batteries were above 13v even though I had left the switch in the On position.

Seems the solar is keeping way ahead of the parasitic drain of the items that don't have their own switches (like propane detector, USB charger, possibly the distribution panel, etc. I did measure the parasitic drain earlier at 140 milli-amps - rather trivial if solar is working.)

The solar monitor on can make it look as if the detector is on. I thought the same as you.

No problem for us with solar in any case!
