Gas Sensor Alarm

I got the heater to work in the Scamp & am a happy camper but probably would always be worried about sleeping with the heater on even if there was a window or vent cracked open.

Is there a alarm that would detect dangerous amounts of gas/propane? Thanks

I think you will need 4 alarms, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and a propane alarm with the smoke alarm. Better safe than sorry

now you may also need a methane alarm....
Seriously, most new rv's that meet RVIA codes have propane & smoke alarms and if you have a heater that does not vent outside then you need the other 2 types of alarms, carbon monoxide/dioxide.

It does vent outside... there are 2 holes. So that's good.

One is a intake and one is an exhaust, most likely. I don't think anyone will die as long as you leave a crack in a window.

Sam's Club has a CO alarm on sale for less than $20.
The Propane alarm also detects other gas.
Sam's also has a dual action smoke alarm.

Don't be caught dead without them.
