Our 155XL is 11 months old and when we run the heater each time, after about 3 mins the smoke detector/carbon monoxide  goes off.  I just assumed it was because the unit was new and this problem would go away.  This weekend while out camping in the Pinnacles in N. California, it went off several times.  Has anyone else had this problem?

Smoke detector is on the ceiling. The propane/CO detector is near the floor. Which is going off? I would be more concerned about the propane/CO detector going off. In any case, since you've only got a month left of warranty, I'd take it to a dealer.

Hey Mikes,

You are absolutely right.  The smoke alarm on our 155XL is on the ceiling but it was the CO Detector going off.  Our dealer is 200 miles away so I may need to find someone local to take a look.  Thank you!!!

Our 177se did this to the point we took the battery out. When we packed up to go home we reinstalled the 9v battery and the smoke detector actually started smoking. Made the trailer smell like melted plastic..
Pulled the battery back out and waiting to hear what riverside wants to do about it..
As I'm being cheap and think i shouldn't have to pay to replace a smoke detector in a brand new trailer

i've got a 177se the furnace set off the propane detector and then the detector kept going off and off and off even when the furnace and propane tankes were shut off. the detector according to a service tech said its bad and needs replacement the front window on the furnace where you can see the flames 2 screws were loose and he said that was common and to keep an eye on it. the screws are tite and the battery operated co detector has not gone off and his propane test meter didn't go off after he tightened the screws up

Every time we cook on stovetop or toaster oven smoke detector goes off repeatedly. Only fix was take battery out and put back in after cooking. Is smoke detector defective?

The smoke detector's seem to be very sensitive. I am now in the habit to just take it down while cooking and return it upon completion of any culinary activities inside our retro. I don't think I would want to replace it with one that is less sensitive!!

The standard ionization type smoke detector is easily tripped during normal cooking, or by the furnace. I replaced ours with a photo-electric one. No issues since.

Yes, mine goes off too. On the plus side, I know it works. 😁
