Hello again;

Everyone here knows that a propane leak can be deadly. Same thing for carbon monoxide. I've been looking for a propane/carbon monoxide detector for RV that operates on 12vdc. It seems all that all the models i found so far, only operate on AC 120v only...
Anyone her knows where to find a 12v propane/carbon monoxide detector?

Thanks!

Yves.

YOU MAY HAVE BETTER LUCK LOOKING FOR A 9 VOLT.

I thought that Camping World stocked the 12 volt variety; but I don't know if they are located near you.

I have also seen Carbon Monoxide detectors bundled with Smoke detectors, but not bundled with Propane detectors. Am I missing something?

My Propane detector is mounted low, next to the Converter, and draws power from the trailer's 12 volt system.

My Smoke detector is mounted high and uses a 9 volt battery.

Camping world has the 12V DC models that wire in to your 12V system. I put a fuse on mine so I can turn it off when not camping.


All vehicles with propane devices should have a CO and Gas detector(s) installed.

I installed a 9volt CO detector for the Egg that gives me a readout. Got it at Home Depot for around $35 USD. I also have 3 of them in my house.

Yes indeed - I won't camp without them! Frederick is right - propane low, CO2/smoke high. Here are mine:

Thanks. I've looked at the Camping World web site, and I've seen the models that they stock. Most of them are 12V, so that's exactly what i'm looking for.

I also have an eye on a Porta-Chef grill.

Yves.

I just bought a newly introduced Dual LP and Carbon Monoxide 12 VDC detector (Model 70-742 made by SafeTAlert (the same brand that CampingWorld sells). It ran about $100, which is slightly less than buying two seperate units. The only disadvantage could be that this unit is a flush mounted, requiring a 3"x4" rectangular hole in the mounting surface.

I ordered my unit through RV Pro here in Vancouver WA.
