It is probably not your batteries, because the Propane detector is still receiving power, thus the alarm. Your propane alarm is hard wired and should always stay that way. Never hook it up to a power source that comes off your regular house current!
You can find them on AMAZON and ETrailer as well. ETrailer would be the better choice, since they can verify the manufacture date of the Alarm.
When you take out your propane monitor you currently have, look on the back of the unit, it should have a manufacture date stamped there. If the date is 5 to 7 years ago, then the Alarm is reached its end of life and must be replaced. They cannot be repaired!
I replaced mine 2 years ago and when I received the first one, the manufacture date was 2018. I immediately sent it back and told them, I wanted a newer one, since the service life was already 3 years old. They sent me a new one dated 2019.
ETrailer will verify the date, before they send it to you. If Amazon sends you one that is out of date, then you have to send it back.
These PROPANE Monitors are not cheap, they run around $60 and up!
The critical thing is the manufacture date. It is usually stamped on the back of the unit!
I put a small label on mine and all my alarms in the coach indicating the replacement dates.
As for your batteries, if they are lead acid and you have maintained them properly, they might be time for replacement. Lithium Batteries are very expensive and you will need a new inverter / converter to run lithium, in most cases. I would suggest you purchase AGM batteries, maintenance free and should last 5 to 7 years. And your current inverter / converter should be able to handle them.
Hope this helps.
