LP Gas Leak Detector - 2005 Classic

I noticed my LP leak detector (Protector) light is on solid red. From what I can read, I think it means the detector may have gone bad. Can they be cleaned or repaired?

Does anyone know if the LP detectors can be reset or cleaned?

Hi, I can't answer your first two questions, but have you checked your batteries? I hear they go crazy at or near the point of having a dead battery. If you had an older trailer I would say just replace it. I don't think you can clean them.

I have a 2005 Classic and the batteries are new. Are they easy to replace? Where can you get them. Camping World or any RV store? Thanks!

The LP detector runs off your main batteries. There is a small wire that bypasses the battery switch and serves the detector alone. This is so that the detector has constant 12v; the detector elements deteriorate when switched on and off or are used and then left in a powered down condition.

The carbon monoxide detector, conversely, runs off a 9v battery. This detector is normally near the ceiling in the bedroom.

I was instructed to cut the black wire to kill the power to the LP detector and wait about an hour and wire nut it back together and see if it resets. I tried it and seemed to reset itself. The blinking green light is back, so it seems it fixed my problem of a solid red light. Has anyone had a similar experience?

do you have a test button on it? does it work when you press it (it should beep)? ours had the red light, and wouldn't beep when the test button was pressed - we had to get a new one installed.

I have had the detector go bad and recommend you look at replacing.
