Propane sniffer alarm sounds

When Iím running the engine the boat wet cell golf cart batteryís are being charged at bulk 14.4 volts and it seems enough hydrogen gas fumes are emitted to alarm the Xantex S-2A alarm sensor. Itís rather annoying and Iíd like to get some input from others.
Thank you all for this great forum.

Re: Propane sniffer alarm sounds

Relocate it.

Actively vent the enclosed space.

Or rig a timed temporary off button - I would not rely on my memory to turn the sensor back on
