Hi Azstramin,

Funny coincidence, I have not worn a watch since, hmm, can't say I ever did outside of high school eons ago..I've never been late for anything..not to say I don't check w/the clocks on walls, in the car, etc..guess I've always had a good internal clock of sorts..

Our smoke detector is mounted centered on the ceiling, between the beds. Mount it away from the stove, if possible, to avoid the "dinner is ready" alarm.

There are newer model smoke/fire detection devices that have a "pause" or "ignore" button that takes care of situations where the stove might set off the alarm but where the user knows that this is not a hazard. Look for one of these. They are standard on the current Airstreams.

I thought that noise was the dinner bell.

Also, I knew when I posted about the time change one of the AZ "rebels" would respond....right on que.

As for security, I rely on Mr. Glock.

Smile Propane/CO2 and smoke detectors

Hi Paula,
We have a smoke detector near the gaucho in the front and we carry a CO2 Propane combo dectector. We first noticed mention of it in this thread
http://www.airforums.com/forum...+gas+detectors
We took AZflycaster's advice (last post in thread) and bought a nonrv detector, wrap it in towels when traveling, and plug it in when camping. We picked up a "Nighthawk" at Home Despot, but I'm sure that there's plenty of great alarms from other places. Great idea to carefully consider location. The smoke alarm (near galley) never fails to go off when I use the convection oven inside. We use our Nighthawk in the house when its not in the trailer.

I'm not saying I don't know what time it is and that I miss appointments or airplanes or whatever. Just found that it helps one escape the constant buzz and grind of work and schedules and all that stuff... it makes you rely on your bio clock... you know… wake when you’re no longer tired...eat when you’re hungry... sleep when you’re tired again...this is sounding like a song ....NO Shoes... No Shirt....in this case No clock.....No problem....

Ok now back to the regularly schedule program...
We have a day clock in our Airstream that only tells the day of the week. I figured it doesn't matter what time it is (like AZstreaming said we'll eat when we're hungry, etc.) but I tend to loose track of what day it is when I'm on vacation and I don't want to forget to go back to work...well, I wouldn't mind that, but I think the mortgage company might!

Hi Steph,

That was an informative thread!..I like the towel wrap, the shower cap, and co discussion..I'll have to check it out at Home Depot..we're fortunate to have the store w/in 10 minutes from home..always a great excuse to buy something for home improvement or repair..I just bought a pulley/crank patio umbrella yesterday to replace the old standard one..it was only $45 end of season sale..I know I digress..

We also installed a CO and smoke detector from Home Depot. When running a test on the battery the unit provides a report. The maximum CO report was WAY OVER what is allowable as safe. Sometime during its installation it detected a high level of CO, but we don't remember it going off. I'm checking into whether it could have gone into alarm and been reset and maintained the reading. Just a few months ago here in maryland we had two deaths due to a WATER HEATER unit in an Ocean City motel. We all should have a CO detector at home and on the road!
