Wired ins are cbe, let me check brand of others when we are away next, van in storage.
I'm buying one. This on Amazon is the one I'm getting. It doesn't need plugging in.
I've settled for this:
After considering the replies above, I've just ordered:
I was sold on the idea of a LPG alarm after reading a comment above about a union nut cracking over time. Mind you I was disposed towards one when I got the Moho. A story has stuck with me since my youth when I'd read about a family being blown up in a boat: a lpg leak and the gas settling in the bottom of a boat and being set off by a spark.
I'm booked in for my 96th birthday so I have a casual kind of bucket list, but I also have an 'I'm not going to die that way', which seems a bit more 'edgy'. I can now say that I'm not going to die in my sleep from being gassed.
For those who have neither alarm, I wish you safe sleeping.
With a gas (lpg) appliance CO is produced when the flame is not a clear blue colour. CO2 is produced by everything that burns fuel or breathes (including ourselves) .
Just in case anyone is thinking of using a Natural Gas Alarm in their motorhome this is from the Fireangel manual:
MPORTANT: The gas alarm you have purchased is calibrated to detect Natural Gas If your gas supply comes from a portable cylinder or storage tank it is more likely to be propane, butane or a mixture of these two Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG) This alarm is not suitable for detecting LPG.
You may wish to think about the purchase of the gas alarm. The Amazon advert makes it clear it is not suitable for LPG.
The product of an addled mind: I was surprised at the number of alarms available and made a bad mistake. I wanted an LPG alarm that didn't run off 240V, so I've now chosen the (expensive) one below. I have plenty of USB sockets and will unplug it when I'm out of the moho.
Thank you for pointing out the error of my ways. I think I managed to cancel it in time...
Smoke/LPG/Carbon Monoxide. All hard wired factory fit in most American motorhomes. Makes sense
Now that Thor have bailed Hymer out perhaps they will start fitting them as standard as well!
I'm happy to put up a CBE Carbon Monoxide detector and a CBE LPG and Narcotic Gas Detector up for Jim's auction if it helps?
