Hi from GA. . . Mine did the same thing and none of the metioned fixes helped. I removed unit and snipped 2 wires. When we got home I called MotherShip about replacement & they said 'yes' they had them & 'no' they wouldn't mail me one Called other RV part place and they sold & mailed me the exact one. Wires re-attached and all's well here! Hope yours stays quiet. (we never did figure out what set it off), Regards, Craig

Oh, moisture can set off sensors. Years ago I was mudlogging off shore in Utah. (Amoco, Parker Drlg rig on 1/4 acre of floating barges welded together on the north side of Great Salt Lake. Oil in every well.) Had H2S poison gas every well at about 140 feet when we were pushing drill collars through the old dead fish in the shallow mud. We maintained the poison gas detectors along with the hot wire chromatograph. About every day the detectors would go off, frequently when they weren't even drilling. Found a roughneck washing down the rig (and the detectors) with water....another story, I was driving into Salt Lake to get the wet H2S detector repaired before they spudded the next well, figured out with the limited time before spud I needed to go straight east over the railroad causeway instead of going north around Promontory Point, Thiokol rocket testing, Honeyville; risking running into a train coming west. Part of the stretch you are driving on the tracks itself. Got across the causeway to dry land, found a locked gate, dang! Miracle, somebody came along almost immediately and opened the the detector back to the rig for the poison gas on the next well, roughnecks washing down the rig again...
I admit to being powerless over housecleaning and social niceities

I once tried to clean some glue off the tile floor. I used Goo Gone or Goof Off.
OMG, the propane detector went nuts.
By law, you're not allowed to put an On/Off switch in the line, so you're limited to cutting the wires.
Seems lots of things can trigger a propane alarm.

AFAIK their is an in-line fuse on all of these located in the 12V distribution box in the front of the trailer. On mine it is the front port side, though others may have it starboard. Not easy to get to necessarily, but that is where you would find the fuse.

Our alarm used to go ON! whenever the dog laid up against it and passed gas. Like the alarm I found that act to be undesirable. Moved dog alarm goes off.
