Propane detector alarms.

I was getting occasional alarms, so I replaced the propane detector in my trailer. I continued to get occasional alarms. My local RV shop replaced the hose from the tank to the regulator, and the regulator. Tests showed no leaks. I continued to get occasional alarms. The shop replaced my detector on warranty. I continue to get occasional alarms. I replaced my propane tanks, and continue to get occasional alarms. Ideas?

?? I'm stumped. that would be scary

We had our CO sensor going off, which had us panicky, but when we replaced it the alarms stopped.

There's lots of information on several of the RV forums about propane detectors going off. Other gases than propane can set them off like hair spray, butane.
I used "propane detector false alarm". You might try that or "gas detector false positive". Google is our friend.
