    I looking for a new vent on my Gas Bottle Locker for my Benimar Europe 6000 ST

    The logo on the vent says CO Vent - Air 170 cm2.

    The dimensions are 37 cm x 14cm.

    Any one sourced one of these vents?

    How does the Carbon Monoxide get into your gas Locker?

    I should clarify it is not a CO vent\filter\detector etc.

    It is branded as CO Vent - Air 170cm2. Which are\were the manufacturers of this said item. Hence the post.

    Its a standard vent like MKP\Electrolux etc.

    The door vents are usually sold by most caravan accessory shops.

    The vent for gas should be in the floor, mine is a circular one about 2 inches diameter with a metal grille over it, to stop mice I guess.

    There are similar floor vents near the water heater and at the back of the fridge.

    My vents are on the top and bottom of the door and I can't find the size on ebay or any of the web stores. Hence the post.

    I think the post title was a tad misleading as CO Vent is the branding not the function.

    Push comes to shove, I have to source an alternative and swop both vents.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Its 37 cm x 14cm and is branded as CO Vent - Air 170 cm2 with 4 screw holes one in each corner.

    Anyone sourced this vent or a similar sized vent?

    My Fridge Vents are 37 x 14 so maybe they used those? Or they might fit anyway. The aperture is about 35 x 13, but without breaking the seal and taking them out I can't be certain.

    Sounds promising.

    I dont suppose you know the make model of the vent? Failing that, I guess, I just keep looking and I find one on the web or at a local stockist.

    Thanks for your time

    My fridge is an Electrolux, so it is possible they supply the vents, worth a Google.
