A gas sniffer is a good idea - especially for those with Anosmia - a complete loss of sense of smell. Anyone on here with that condition and how do you cope with it?

We have a Honeywell EZ Sense too, bought years ago when my wife was convinced we had a gas leak in our Autocruise PVC. I couldn't smell anything but the EZ Sense located a slight leak in the gas locker, solved by a quick tightening of a connector.

Make certain you get one with a long thin 'nose' (front proboscis) so it can get amongst the pipework, joints etc to 'sniff' for leaks.
I have a battery powered one in the van and wouldn't be without it!

That's where I saw it last night it seem to work quite well "Toptest" there are 2 models on amazon 23 and 26 hence why I was asking for recommendations , but see a few people have the honeywell one so I will check that out.

You do have to get up close especially around slight joint leaks. This is the reason why I mentioned about getting a long noses one.
I was touching the leaking joint, no notifications. Left the gas on , and it would sound when placed at ground level, due to the density. A proper LPG manometer and a bit of time sorted it.

My van had a very slight smell of gas after the dealer changed a thermocouple at the habitation check. It was so slight, I wasn't sure that there even was a leak.

This Amazon product ASIN B07FSVCSSL made it very easy to check. The alert was very positive. The dealer reckoned it was a little piece of grit in the gas pipe thread.

Your link took me to a general page on Amazon?
