    Thinking of upgrading the basic 'stick on-change colour' detector to a battery operated detector. Where within the motorhome would funsters recommend the best location of a detector.

    Don,t put it anywhere near your mouth as it will keep going off. I assume you mean a carbon monoxide detector, normally recommended about 3' from floor and not in corner

    sleeping aria i put mine fairly near to head high when siting this places it just level with the top bunk at the front ferly near to the central heating but i am sure that’s wrong someone will be along to put me right but even wrongly placed is better than not having one as the main sorch of carbon monoxide is heating cooking and being overcome when sleeping ferly near to your sleeping level if in doubt get two [FONT=&quot]they are cheep far beter than the long sleep or the dirt nap

    I seem to recall a previous debate on this .....and having followed up one of those previous links to an independent site - it turns out that despite popular thinking being to mount them "lower down" it doesn't actually matter.

    IIRC - its about airflow and enclosed spaces; thus it is dissipated throughout in anycase - so anywhere not in a cupboard or without obscured airflow should suffice...
