My 76 22' Argosy had no detectors of any kind. Should I add some? Anyone have any links to what is popular for use and dependable? I like living....

Yes, you should add a combination smoke/CO detector near or on the ceiling in sleeping areas, and an LPG detector near the floor, probably a few feet away from the furnace (since the furnace is normally the lowest ignition source).

If you go to Home Depot, you can find good battery-operated models that don't need to be wired into your trailer's 12v systems. Kidde makes a good detectors.

I took the battery out of the smoke detector near the stove on my FC 19. My cooking sets it off and it's annoying

My cooking is annoying, too! Ask anybody!

Do you have other smoke detectors, or just the one? As long as you have one just outside your sleeping area, you're probably okay without one in your galley area. But if the one in your galley is your only one, better to relocate it away from the stove and then put the battery back in. And open more vents when you cook. Which is what I have to do.

I've had issues with smoke / heat detectors as sold for stick houses installed in my 5'er as replacements. The heat side would always go off, (no smoke, tea kettle) when cooking or steamy shower. Too low of a ceiling to bump the heat trigger?
