Is that thing a smoke detector? I thought it was an oven timer.

Hey Ken,

Just so we get it right, it was the Raid Ant & Roach Killer with GermFighter.

The sawdust from cutting out your floorboards with a circular saw will test your smoke detector. It will apparently ruin it too

It makes for a "clean kill".

I heard you tried to rinse the ant and roach spray off by submerging the trailer. Any truth to this rumor?

Getting back to the subject at hand...

If you don't know, you should try to mount the CO detector at a mid- height in your coach, and the smoke alarm near the top of the ceiling, for obvious reasons.

Are you sure? I was told the CO would rise and pool at the ceiling, so the CO detector should be mounted near the ceiling, same as the smoke detector. LP detector goes near the floor.

CO is almost exactly the same weight as regular air, so anywhere you want is fine. IMHO the closer to the furnace outlet the better. CO may rise at first because it is in the warm air coming from the furnace but as it cools it will fall...normal thermodynamics.

Exactly. We installed our CO detecter at an outlet about hip level. My theory is, if anything happens, it will be while we are asleep, and that level is just above the level of our heads while sleeping.

Terry,

Hey buddy, I believe it was you that recommended RT. 27 out of Miami. Frankly, I'm glad you did. We liked it so much we didn't head east until after Ocala. I lived down near Palm Beach for three years in the seventies, and I had never seen that part of Florida. It was beaautiful. On 27 just north of Miami was the straightest, flattest road I had ever seen. Thanks again for the travel advice. Here's my advice to you: If you ever stay at the Torchlight Campground in Clermont, avoid site 11.

Regarding that terrible "rumor", I wouldn't have had to rinse out the Bambi in Clermont, if the vacuum had worked in Miami.

My pleasure. You can also go from Ocala on US 301 all the way to Yulee, Florida, and hang a right, and hit I-95 about 10 miles or so from the Georgia border. Just be very sure you obey the speed limit through there. Not a half mile an hour over.

We also placed our CO detector in our bedroom. The manufacturer installation instructions said to place it out of direct air flows and closer to the ceiling. Thus we moved it AWAY from the vent outlets.

As for our propane detector, it's near the oven/furnace/frig, since these are the normal culprits. Since we recently replaced the stove/oven, I mounted it near the front door. A key point here is that the alarm won't work if you have a wind draft in the front door. Have fun
