Where to locate CO and gas detectors?

I'm installing a new battery operated carbon monoxide detector and a 12 volt hard wired propane gas detector in addition to installing separate battery powered smoke detectors.

The trailer I own had no detectors installed at all when I bought it.

Where are the carbon monoxide detectors and propane gas detectors commonly located?

The flammable gas detector location will be limited to areas where I can tap into existing 12 volt lines.

Are they typically located high? Low?

Thanks!

Smoke/fire - High

Lo-hi-hi . . . . Sounds like the Chinese three stooges.

Thanks, that'll make it easy.

To be more clear, the CO is in the BR on the wall about 8" from the ceiling.

The Smoke/fire is on the ceiling in the LR (I would mount yours as far from the stove/oven as practical to prevent false nuisance alarms.

The propane is close to the fridge and stove on the wall about 3" from the floor (close to the propane powered devices....the WH propane line terminates outside the interior walls, so not as close to the detector.)

That's good, thanks! This is nearing the final stage for me. I appreciate the additional information.
