Chasing a Mysterious Beep

So...now I am chasing a mysterious beep. It sounds like it is coming from the stereo in the middle of my slide at the 5 1/2 foot level. Then again, that could be where it is echoing from.

I took the batteries out of my smoke detectors and CO2 detector to try to isolate the problem. I am certain it is not a gas leak or CO2 because it occurs even with the door and windows open and a strong breeze blowing through. Seems like it beeps about every hour or so. Just a quick beep...not like an alarm or anything.

Is it possible that the CO2 detector is hardwired?

Looking for a place to start on this one.

Getting closer on making this a good travel trailer.

When our propane tanks were running out, our C02 detector did the same thing. We filled the tanks an it stopped. May not be the same issue you're having, just thought I'd put my 2 cents in.

Thanks. Will double check. Just filled the tanks before the weekend. Ran a couple quick showers for the kids and did some dishes, but shouldn't have used too much LP doing that. Furnace and AC were not on, and refrigerator was running off electric.

It's like chasing the loud cricket in your basement. At midnight. Hungover. In the dark. With hot wheels and legos on the floor. Barefoot.

Did you check to see if your stereo might not have some type of alarm set?

If I remember right, the CO2 sniffer is hard wired.

Did you check the propane leak detector? It is hard wired and will beep when the battery is low or when it gets old. Mine was beeping at one point and stopped when I blew it out with a can of compressed air. A couple of years ago it started doing it again so I replaced it with a new one. No more beep.
On the otherhand, the original 12v radio in my 5er had an alarm that some how got set one time and had me chasing a phantom alarm for several days thinking I hhad a gas leak or something.

Thanks Patrick! Will double check. Battery is new and fully charged. Will give it a cleaning or replace it. Looks like an easy and at eight years old, perhaps necessary replacement.

Had the same issue with my Propane detector except mine would not shut off after chasing the beep for a few months. Finally replaced it and all is well in camper land.
