Beep beep beep b!ink b!ink blink

Last week, Daughter sprayed deodorant on and something started beeping. Then stopped. Today, something was beeping almost all day, while driving, no deodorant or anything sprayed. Any idea what's beeping and why? I can't find where it's coming from. Also, the light on the fridge flashes red all the time and it's always on auto. We had propane tank filled but the propane is turned to off outside. Any ideas on this ? Tyvm in advance.

Re beep beep beep - - Two possibilities. Smoke detector battery needs to be changed, or carbon monoxide/propane detector is trying to tell you something.

Re blink blink blink - - Assuming you are on the road or otherwise not connected to shore power. the fridge is trying to operate on propane, which it can't do because the valve is closed. Solution: turn the valve on, switch the fridge off then back on.

you have only 3 choices. LP, CO, and smoke dectors. Should not be hard to figure it out.

If it's chirp..........chirp..........chirp..........as mentioned it's the smoke detector.

If it's beep.beep.beep. it's your, also as mentioned co2 (house battery) alarm, which may be why you have a refrigerator error.

Check them and let us know

The propellant in most aerosols is propane. Propane is 1.5 times heavier than air and tends to settle in low areas; hat is why your propane detector s near the floor. An RV fridge can operate on 120 volt shore power or 12 volt battery power and propane. With no 120 volt AC from the shore line or the generator the fridge will defer to propane. If you turn the fridge on and there is neither 120 volt AV or propane it will indicate an error as it is not able to cool.

Likely the propane leak detector. Mine is installed on the side of the passenger side bed.

I set it off using aerosol adhesive on a project.

If the fridge is not off, and in auto, with no ac power it is trying to light on propane. Turn the gas on, light the stove to clear lines of air and it should go green after you cycle it.

Beeping is probably co alarm. It's right by the bathroom in my unit.

This happens to us occasionally and lighting the stove has always worked. If fridge light is blinking, it is not on. I check this every time we unplug and start driving just to make sure it is working properly.
The beeping is most likely your carbon monoxide detector as others have stated. Ours goes off if we spray air freshener. We hit store button, wait a minute then hit use, it should stop beeping.

Have you considered asking your Daughter to switch to roll-ons?
