We have two CO detectors in our Escape
Many nights we run our Martin catalytic heater with one window open about a 1/2" and the ceiling vent open another 1/2". We've never had the CO detector come on and don't expect it will.
OTOH, it seems once a trip we forget to open a window a crack in the morning and start coffee and cooking oatmeal without the range hood running. One CO detector will come on and the other will register CO at a level I'm not comfortable with. Once we open the door for a few seconds and crack a window/ceiling vent the CO detector goes off. I kind of like this since it tells me our CO detectors are doing their jobs.
Ninety percent of our camping is in the shoulder seasons when either the furnace
or catalytic heater is running.
