NOTE the following is while the camper is unoccupied and stored in my back yard.
The Propane/CO detector in my camper started going off randomly a few weeks ago. I thought it was from some random issue that I had caused invertably. I pushed reset and everything was fine for a while.
Then a couple to a few days later I would find it going off again. Now it will not reset. I have ordered a new one, after validating there is no GAS leak or CO issue.
Comments in reviews for a similar model suggest the expected life is 5 years, but some indicate less then a year. (product link on Amazon.com )MTI Industries 35-742-WT Safe T Alert 35 Series Dual LP/CO Alarm - Flush Mount, White
I know in the old days many CO detectors had a life of one event. If it went off, you had to replace it, no reset.
I suspect that my fumes from mowing with my old lawnmower are getting into the camper, and causing some of the alerts.
What is the life expectancy of Propane/CO detector?
Do trace amounts of propane or CO impact the life expectancy?
