The answer you got does sound possible. Newer trailers will off gas alot of different fumes. It will happen more when the weather is hot.

You can test your detector with a butane lighter. Point the lighter at the unit and press the button. Do not spin the wheel to light the flame. The unit should sound off in a few seconds and remain sounding untill the gas level drops into the safe range.

A butane lighter....makes perfect sense. Will definitely give that a try.

And yes, the offgassing certainly makes sense as well. When I designed and built my current home, I spend considerable effort reducing these indoor chemicals (all natural floor coverings, zero VOC paints, formaldehyde free cabinet materials, soy-based spray foam insulation, etc.). I'm sure the same care was not taken with the AS outfitting.
