Hi I turned on...

Hi I turned on the propane heater and 5-10 minutes later the smoke (co?) detector went off. When I pushed the silence button it stopped and has not started again. Brand new pop up camper. Why would this happen? We are burning a camp fire 20 feet away but no windows were open.

Mechanic's Assistant: Hi there. Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

It is a pop up camper. There are no headlights.

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you confirm the make of your 20 Camper?

2020 flagstaff 206ltd pop up. Made p By forest river
