thanks for the replies

one of those questions where one knows the answer but wanted to run it up the flagpole to see who saluted.... I did and am running away from home...since april 1st have logged about 8000 miles in texas, arkansas, tenessee, kentucky and ohio and and returning to ohio for a pig roast, where i am the honored chef, on the 4th of july.. and then, new mexico, and then the texas coast, and then????
and susan if , if i had kids i would probably drag them behind the coach just think of what horses, cows, pigs and sheep go through being in a trailer...is it different....because they are cows, pigs, sheep and we age going to eat them???????
and the dog would still be glad to see me and the wife never would be!!!!
thanks

Our 19-foot Bambi gets filled with exhaust fumes on long trips, and we remove the batteries from the carbon monoxide alarm while we are on the road. When we stop, we run the Fantastic Fan for several minutes before entering the trailer, and I put the batteries back in the alarm as part of the trailer setup procedure.

This is less obvious a hazard with newer tow vehicles, many of which have catalytic converters that reduce the smell of vehicle exhaust. We learned this years ago from our old 1978, 3/4 ton, Chevy pickup. It had absolutely no smog controls, and the exhaust smell was really obnoxious in our trailer to the point of making your eyes water and making you choke. When the carbon-monoxide alarm continued to go off in our Airstream when we switched to a new Toyota Tundra last summer, we realized that the problem still existed, even though the exhaust smell was less obvious.

I would worry about carbon-monoxide poisoning for any live animal (or person) riding in the trailer for an extended length of time...

I have been warned to crate the dogs once we start traveling in our 1987 Airstream 345. If there is an accident and they are in their crates, they can't get out and get lost or get run over.

We had an accident years ago when our OES was not crated, when I got out to exchange info he bolted from the truck. He would never get in the truck on his own again.

You fasten your seatbelt, please crate the critters.

That reminds me. They make seat belt harnesses for dogs. For those that don't wish to crate you could give that a try.
