Question Mystery Beeps??

Can anyone help with suggestion for mysterious electronic beeping in our trailer? Itsa 25' Excella from 1989, with rear double bed, and inside the trailer there is a very faint high-pitch beep sound every 45 to 60 seconds, at random intervals. It is NOT the smoke detector (over front entrance area) NOR the propane leak detector (mounted low on side of kitchen entry). It sounds like the low-battery warning of a second smoke detector, but I have been unable to find one anywhere... It's becoming a real challenge, and I wondered if anyone else might have discovered a second remote detector somewhere in their trailer..

John, pull out the drawers, and look behind them on the floor. It sounds like you have a second smoke alarm that has fallen behind a drawer somewhere, and it is low on power.
Let us know what it finally turns out to be, enquiring minds want to know...

Thanks.. That is great trouble shooting suggestion! I should have mentioned that sound appears to be coming from center of trailer (between front of bedroom and bath area) and seems to be coming from down low, rather than top half of trailer..

We did find a bunch of items that had dropped from slide-out pantry into inaccessible areas below sinks, so another detector may be rumbling around as well...

Also should have mentioned we bought trailer last summer, still looking for opportunity to take out and use it, after hauling it home from Texas to Calif in 2 1/2 days and parking it alongside house..

Talking Mystery SOLVED!!

Thanks to suggestion, I found unattached smoke/CO detector with a tired battery under side drawers in bedroom, which still had enough juice to beep faintly about every three minutes...

It will get new battery, and permanent mount where it can be seen and heard...

John, as cheap as smoke detectors are, why not get a new one? They are supposed to be replaced every ten years or so anyway. Just don't mount it right over the galley, unless you want the whole campground to know when supper is ready!
