When you say "not functioning", you do have the coach battery(ies) enabled, and have tested them in that state? I'm not trying to be funny, but when I first started out, I didn't realize that those 2 detectors only work when the coach batteries are enabled. They aren't actually hard wired (in my 2002, at least) directly to the coach batteries, they go through the switch like almost everything else that runs on 12VDC in your coach. My disable/enable switch is on the monitor panel installed by Roadtrek, with the tanks/propane gauges test switch, and the water pump on/off switch. I'm guessing you already know this, but thought I'd ask, before you replace some stuff that doesn't need replacing.
