Beeping noise near roof

I thought I'd post this since it drove me crazy to find this noise. I kept hearing a beeping outside my trailer. it sounded like it was coming from the AC unit.

Ultimately I traced this to the wind sensor in my powered awning. There are two batteries in the sensor attached to the awning, when they get low they start to beep. To replace, extend the awning, slide the sensor to the left to release and then replace the batteries.

What size batteries for this eventuality?

I wish I had read your post earlier! That beep has had me puzzled for the last year, wondering if it was from my rig, or the next one in the storage lot! Finally found it yesterday, just as you described. Was about to post about it, when I found your post.

Change out smoke detectors at the same time.

Add to the "DeWinterization Instructions", replace awning and smoke detector batteries and test before use.
