CO2 detector

I posted recently about winterizing or not since the temps here in MN are dropping and we're leaving soon. I ended up turning the hot water heater on and cranking up the furnace to keep it warm in the unit. I've noticed that the CO2 detector in the bedroom is starting to chirp. I know the exhaust from the furnace exits at the rear of the unit. I wouldn't be surprised it there could be some CO2 leakage into the BR. I'm wondering if the detector in the BR is hard wired or runs on a 9v battery. I figure it's either the battery, or there is some leakage. I have a 2014 Winnebago Sightseer

I think you have a "CO" (carbon monoxide) detector, not a carbon dioxide detector (CO2). If the detector is the original equipment then it needs to be replaced. The life of the detector is generally about 5 years.

They also chirp when the battery gets low and some chirp when they age out.

As to 9V or hard wired, you probably need to take it down and look at it. Many of them if you twist them 1/4-1/2 turn they will come off.
