Sensitive smoke detector
« on: July 26, 2021, 05:53:44 PM »
Hi Everyone,
Just picked up my 2014 Camplite Livin lite 8.6.  the smoke sensor is going off every 30 minutes or so when I am plugged in to power and nothing else is operational other than the fridge.  Why is this happening?

I have two installed.  Just happened to check after owning the trailer for a year.  Both batteries were removed which obviously made them non-operational.  Installed a battery in one because I only had one 9v battery at the time while camping.  Every time we use a small toaster it goes off.  We now open the two top ventilation fans in the trailer and run them at full blast for the brief periods we use the toaster and that seems to keep the detector from going off.

My take is that they are extremely sensitive and in a tight space even more so....
