Propane Gas Alarm/Detector Wiring

Seems the propane gas detector in our 2007 Bambi wasn't wired right. No voltage at the propane detector.

Any ideas on where to find the wiring diagram for this? The wiring is a bit on the messy side behind the heater area. What would be my best option to correct the detector?

Not too interested in taking our new Bambi into the local dealer... I would like to be able to camp in it this summer not have it sit for weeks to be fixed.

Greetings Dave-

You will find the wiring diagram in your manual. The detector should have a straight line to your battery. It is supposed to be set up so that there will always be power to the unit even when all else is down. Should be easy to trace but the first place I would look is to make sure the wires are connected properly to the detector itself. Keep us posted!

Hi Dave,

Have you checked the manufacturer's web site? Who's is it? The big 3 in LP detection are Atwood Mobile Products, CCI controls, and Safe-T-Alert.

Also, see if they put the owner's manual in your cute little brief case. If not and you can't find anything on line, let me know and I'll try to dig up some phone numbers for you.

The propane detector is an "always on" safety device. If the wiring is a "mess", there is likely a "live" 12 volt source in the wires. Use a volt-meter and find the source, and re-attach the wires from the leak detector. Black lead wires are usually the 12 volt (+) and white lead wires are usually the (-) ground.

Solved the problem. Wasn't the wiring, it was a blown fuse! Didn't realize that the propane detector line has a fuse. It's located below the dinette seat beside the fresh water tank. Dealer says that he has seen a few units with blown fuses. Its a 1A fuse.

Replaced it, and were back in business!
