We have an alert...

We have an alert going off that originates outside of the RV opposite the Dining room table. How can we stop it.

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model/year of your RV?

2012 Jayco Pinnacle

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '12 RV?

36 foot

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, we are trying to fix it because nobody is open. We cut the wires to the carbon monoxide and propane gas alarm. Tried removing 15 volt fuse from the fuse box for the same as above.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the manual yet? Most vehicles have two fuse panels.

I have checked the manual and don't see anything about another fuse panel.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

When this first started, we were able to stop the alarm by bringing in the slide out where the beeping is originating and then extending it back out. That worked for about 7 hours and now it has been going off for over 2 hours.

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Is this one of the CO2 or LP alerts and detectors?

I don't know what other alarm there would be there.

No

If it isn't one of those I have no idea what other alarm would be there. Some fridges have an open door alarm. Low voltage can trigger an alarm. Not sure a phone call would be a good move here.

And outside the RV I have no idea what would be out there. I have never seen or heard of any and I have been on this site for 9 years and had my own shop much longer than that. Maybe something in a storage area is going off. I did have a question a month ago where it was like that.
