Returned home from 5 days camping, cleaned up the camper, shut down the fridge, nothing unusual,and all went well. Now, the Atwood CO detector is giving me 4 beeps about every minute. I changed the propane tank and reset the detector. Green light is on for propane, but the red lite is still flashing CO detection. Range knobs are all in of prsition, fridge is shut down and off. I tried unplugging electric, thought maybe that would reset it but it didn't help. I'm befuddled! Any other sugestions? Could the excessive heat (95 and humid today) cause it?

There should be an instruction sheet for that thing to explain what all the signals mean. With out digging mine out of the camper I can't tell you off the top of my head.
One other thing I've seen that will set them off is a battery that is gassing, close enough for it to pick up.

Checked the manual, nothing there to explain other than to evacuate RV. I've opernd the doors and windows, turned on a fan and even turrned the AC back on. No batteries inside, no cars running. I'm going to call dealer in the am.

Did you get any answers yet?
I had a CO detector go bad in our Lance. I don't remember for sure how it was acting, but the dealer gave me a new one to put in.

Called the RV dealer this am and guess what...they're shut down, all off until Monday. I guess we aren't suppose to have any problens during the busiest camping week of the season! Not using the RV until Thursday next week, but it is annoying. I too think it's defective but it is built into the wall and I just can't remove it. I'll keep you posted

The batterywas fullly charged. I located the fuse to the alarm, it is on the 15 amp fuse with the fridge. Iunplugged the fuse to stop the beeping. I then re filled the propane tank which was still 1/4 full, and re connected.Then Iswitched back to the old tank which now was full.The other tank was full and opened but did not eliminate the beeping. Now I put the fuse back in, reset the alarm, and praise the Lord...the alarm shut off. Problem is solved but I still don't know why the red light was on for CO detection. Thanks for suggestions.

Hello folks, this happens every now and then to me. If it appears there is a fault in the co2/gas detector Many things from some air fresheners to cleaning solutions. This has happened to me (alarm sounding) a few times with a Forrest River and Cross Roads RV. What always works for me, to properly reset it is to locate the fuse, which is not labeled. Once the fuse which the sensor is on is located, remove it for at least 30 minutes. Re-insert the fuse and it should be back to normal.

The CO alarm should be the same as a smoke Alarm and contain a 9volt battery inside it. In many cases, this is an indicator that the battery is low. Change the battery inside the CO Alarm and this should clear up the beeping. Also, you can ask your local fire department to check the unit with their CO Detection Sensors; tell them the sensor is beeping and ask if they can check the trailer. All fire departments are always willing to help and check this for you. They will confirm the presence of any CO or not. Low Battery alarms are very common and easy to correct with a new battery.
