Check those CO and Propane Detectors!

Old Propane Alarm

After we had to use a propane heater in the trailer last year when the park lost power, I decided to change out our LP and CO detectors. I had no idea they were so old. 2006!

Check the date on back. This one was from 2006!

In case you don’t know, these need to be replaced every 5 years. The sensors decay over time. You should get an RV rated detector that is hardwired (12vdc) and made for the rough trailer life.

The new detector I got is a combo LP and CO detector. The LP has some strict rules on where it’s installed. Mine had to be at least 12 inches from an opening, like a door or window, and between 4 and 20 inches off the ground. Be sure to check your instructions carefully!
