Beeping why?

We have a International Signature 2011 27FB, when I went to make my monthly storage payment I always check on her. I found that she is beeping every minute or so. It was late and dark last night when I was there, so I could not track down where it was specifically coming from. I am going back today to see if I can track it down.

Since we are new to AS we are not even sure at this point what has an alarm in the AS that would beep. I read something about the LP having a buzzing sound in the manual, but this is a beeping sound. The AS has been in storage for several months without being out camping.

Any ideas what it is or what I need to check to eliminate it off the list of possible beeping causes.

Thanks in advance...
KS

PS Sorry if there is another post. I looked around but could not find anything on beeping trailers only beeping motor homes and interstates.

Like they said, the battery in either your smoke detector or CO2 detector needs to be replaced. I had a similar experience 2 weeks ago. I went to the storage lot and was working on our AS. I was just locking up, about to leave, and the smoke detector started beeping. You should replace the battery in both of them.

We remove the batteries from the detectors when the trailer is in storage, plus replace them annually.

Did you go back out to the storage lot to see where the beeping is coming from? Any chance it could be from the converter area? Do you have any personal electronics that are stored in the AS? How loud is the beeping? Is it as loud as a smoke detector with a weak battery or lower?

You don't say if it's connected to AC power while in storage so I'm guessing no. Have you checked the battery voltage? Maybe it's low and causing something connected to it to be warning you of low power. My LP detector has a flashing light on it, does yours and is it blinking? I think mine blinks about every 10 seconds or so. Is the fridge off?

My LP detector also beeps if it thinks there is propane. My smoke/CO alarm "talks".

My gas sniffer beeps when the trailer battery is low. Hopefully it's simple fix.

Yep it was my CO2 detector battery going out. Thanks for the responses, glad it was something little.
