Think the sticker shock of the better Garrison is worth a peaceful sleep.

I have two CO detectors. Because they do not have to be hard-wired or plugged in to shore power, I use them in the house when not using them in the trailer. I can't be in two places at once, so it's cheaper.

My MTI Safe-T-Alert is not cheap and is hard-wired in the trailer to 12V DC.

I have a similar setup....battery operated CO detector.....a plug in propane detector.....we rarely boondock....hookups for us.....works well.

The one I am going to replace, that came with my Casita, is Safe-T-Alert brand. No idea if it is available to retail customers.

I just searched for it and found: https://www.camperid.com/safe-t-aler...087985771.html

This seems to be the identical alarm to the one that came in the camper. It is 12V alarm, and mine is wired to the battery.

Your battery is 12VDC.

Sensitive CO/Propane alarm

If the alarm unit is hardwired into the 12V system, does low battery condition cause chirping? A friend tells me he solved the chirping by topping off the water in the batteries.
