My co/propane alarm is...

My co/propane alarm is going chirping 4 times with a pause after each series and the red light is flashing. What is causing it?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?

The alarm model is RVCOLP-2 and there is only one light and it is flashing red

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

Jayco jay flight Slx Baja

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your SLX?

2020. The light is now on green

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

I have only looked up what that light and chirping meant ... it said it is the co alarm and to open all windows. But what I don’t get is the only two appliances I have running are the water heater and refrigerator and they are both set on electric right now

The detector will chirp 4 times with a red light when it is in self test mode.

f the Silence/Test button is pressed while in normal operation, the alarm will perform a self test of the CO sensor, propane sensor and battery voltage. It is recommended to perform a self test weekly, after power up from storage, and before each trip. If the self test passes, the alarm will perform 2 cycles of the CO horn pattern (4 rapid chirps followed by a 4 second pause), followed by 2 cycles of the propane horn pattern (constantly beeping)

If the CO or propane alarm fails a self test, or if the End-of-Life is reached (after 5 years of operation), the alarm will enter the Failure State. The horn will chirp every minute and both LEDs will do a double flash every minute. Replace the alarm immediately.

You always also want to make sure you have good DC battery voltage, if the battery voltage gets to low then the detector can go off.

IF the LP detector does not come out of the self test mode then I would call the dealer, could have a bad detector.

I am plugged into a 30 amp right now. So now that the light is on green it means we are safe? Would internal temperature affect the alarm? I have been gone all day and the temp was 75 so it was pretty hot inside.
