- November 5, 2017 at 2:05 pm #77350
My wife and I were out riding our bikes and when we returned our next door campers said they herd 4 loud beeps coming from our Oliver like every minute or so. We only had the A/C running so our dog would keep cool. I went inside and checked the alarms and everything seemed fine and it has not sounded since.
What could have caused the Co alarm to go off? It was not chirping as if the batteries need replacement.November 5, 2017 at 2:50 pm #77362
Are you sure it was the CO alarm? I’ve had the propane alarm go off for no apparent reason. Maybe your pup was having one hell of a party?

Ours did that once. Our dog has a bed that sits under the dining table and he had his head next to the alarm…We repositioned his bed. That solved our problem.????

As Yvonne & Doug said, I saw a YouTube video years back of someone having the same problem, with the same cause, they actually had video of it happening and it was pretty comical.

The fellow campers told me they heard 4 beeps about every minute or so. They walked around the trailer and thought it was the solar panels. I looked online and what kind of alarm it was. Crazy because I’ve tested both and all is well. Have not had another alarm go off. Crazy folks!November 5, 2017 at 9:29 pm #77401
We used aerosol spray close to Ollie’s dinette and set off the propane alarm last year. Our propane alarm works great, too!
Were any aerosol sprays used previous to the alarm? Here’s additional information about aerosol spray and propellants used:

This has happened to us too. Hair spray! I’ve also heard of dogs sleeping under the dinette causing an alarm due to a bit of methane escaping. Mike

OK, Mike – you ought to know that a little too much hair spray is not good for you. I assume that Carol has counselled you on this?

Thanks for all the info folks. I really don’t know if my dog was under the dinette or not. Everything seems fine and I was a little concerned when I got home from my bike ride and found out what had happened. maybe I should keep my gopro camera running when we are out and take a look what my doggie is doing when we are gone.November 6, 2017 at 3:15 pm #77443
Either that or cut back on the beans a bit.

You said you left the ac running, as I might do as well if I had a dog inside, and thought temps would rise.
The ac takes in and exhausts air.
I remember one night when we had the grill running near the trailer, with the back window cracked and the exhaust fan running. The alarm went off in the trailer.
When I closed the rear window, the alarm stopped.
I wonder if someone near you ran a grill or genset?

I think the AC only recirculates air, no fresh air is drawn into the trailer.November 8, 2017 at 8:46 am #77563
Brad, I believe in Sherry’s case the culprit was the fact the rear window was open with the exhaust fan (rather than the AC) running, allowing evil vapors to enter the coach and subsequently set off the CO detector.
