Hi all, Our caravan alarm has randomly started going off, unfortunately it's on a seasonal pitch which we cannot get to with the current restrictions so I've just told the site to disconnect the sounder for now. 

As it's now more than 3 years old I'm putting it down to being the back up battery and/or the wireless leg sensor as the site have changed the PIR batteries but that hasn't helped matters.  I was just wondering if anyone has changed the wireless leg sensor to the wired version and if it's an easy swap?  I'm presuming this would have a far greater life expectancy than the wireless version due to no batteries?

Rather than disconnect the sounder you can simply remove the alarm 12 volt fuse and disconnect the alarm back up battery to stop the alarm working. Your insurance should also be informed that you do not have an alarm so they can not use this as a reason to not pay out - when I did this the premium did not change.

 

There was a topic on here a while back where the leg sensor magnet that goes on the leg had moved and was preventing the alarm working and this could be the same in your case.

Thanks, that's certainly worth a look when I'm able to next get over and also re letting the insurance know. I may investigate the option of a mobile engineer as well if these restrictions prevent us getting over for to much longer.

I've now bought a wired leg sensor online although when it's come the cable is rather short.  I'm not able to inspect the caravan at the moment but I was wondering if anyone knows which corner steady leg it is usually attached too? If it's the rear then I'll need to get an extension cable.

Front near side on my previous Elddis with this alarm.

Thanks for that, it should hopefully reach then as the cable is 1.9m in length
