Wayne, is your battery location one where you have to remove the propane tanks to access the batteries? Any pics of how you set up the disconnect switch? That's high on my project list.

Since it stopped after you opened the door, it pretty obviously is something to do with stale air trapped in the trailer, probably high humidity, but could be due to something out-gassing inside. Try taking EVERYTHING loose out of the trailer,check to see if it still does alarm after setting overnight, then replace one thing at a time, waiting overnight each time (I know, this takes a long time), until it happens again.

to speed up that process, put HALF the stuff back in. if the alarm goes off, take half of that half out otherwise, put in another quarter of the original stuff (eg, half of the half you left out). repeat this with increasingly smaller slices, either taking out if the alarm goes off, or adding if the alarm hasn't gone off yet.

say there were 64 items in the trailer. if you did it one item per day sequentially, it would take 64 days. if you do 32, then 16, then 8, then 4, then 2, then 1, thats 6 days.

in computers, this is called a 'binary search'.

Put a second one in with it. If they both go off, you have a problem.

It did this about a year ago. Same scenario - open the door and after a couple minutes it stops. The propane detector is a different device and is not beeping.

Any ideas? Could humidity cause it to think it was smoke?

ETA: Just checked Internet!

If you now know the cause of the issue work on fixing it.
