Carbon monoxide detector failed


Recommended Posts

I have a call into Mike, but in the meantime one of you all may know the answer.  My carbon monixide detector has failed.  I have tried repeatedly to reset and get the beeping every 30 seconds.  It went bad on the way home from Montana.  I just picked it up to go on a road trip and of course it is still beeping.  I called the manufactuer as listed in the Oliver manual and was advised it is no longer made or available.  I just want to turn if off.  There is nothing in the manual about turning it off, only installation instructions and testing.  I look at the fuses and don't think it has a dedicated fuse.  Any ideas how to turn if off?  I have a portable detector that I will be using.  I just cannot tolerate that beeping every 30 seconds 24 hours a day.  Thank you in advance.

Ours did that on a long trip once in the middle of the night.  I don’t have a lot of patience at 3:00am.  I lifted the dinette seat and cut the wires.  Problem solved.  I ordered a new on the next day from Amazon and it was waiting for us when we got home.  I don’t recommend going too long without one, but if it’s broke, it’s broke.  Fortunately there are also Camping Worlds and other RV repair places all around.  Mike

If you’re referring to the LP/ CO detector under the dinette there is a 1 amp fuse located under the street side bunk. At least there is in mine.  Pull that fuse and put it where you can find it later.

In the owner’s manual for a 2018 Elite, the schematic for the monitors shows a 1 amp fuse for the LPCO detector.

We purchased ours in March of 2020. Ours went bad last month. I contacted Oliver and was directed to file a warranty claim with Dometic. I got the new one in this week and will install tomorrow.

Thank you all.  Mike did call back and I cut the wires.  How hard is it to install a new one?  

As I recall, it screws in from the front.  Wires pass through to reconnect where you cut.  You can add a fuse there if you want to.  Mike

I just replaced the one in our new older trailer with a alternate brand.  The one used in the 2017 Oliver was hard to find (Atwood) and about 40% higher in price.   The installation was easy enough as one of the two supplied faceplates covered the existing hole and only required a pilot hole for the new screws.   Below is the link to the one I installed.   No more alarms in the middle of the night!

I didn’t want to drill any holes so I used an 1/8 inch chainsaw file to make a small notch on each side of the existing hole

I enlarged the existing holes on the large bezel provided in the box

and used the small bezel provided as a backing plate for 2 (#6 I think) flat head SS screws inserted into the 2 enlarged holes and through the notches

and used 22-18 ga butt splices to attach the wires since the old monitor had 18 ga wires and the new one has 22 ga wires

-(2) 18-22 ga butt splices

Pretty sure they have a 5 year shelf life.  2017 / 2018 trailers are pretty close to done.   We replaced ours last year.
