Combo 12vdc smoke and CO detector

Can anyone point me to where I might find a 12 volt combo smoke/CO detector.
I have search here and the web and only come up with 120 volt or battery operated models.

Your help is much appreciated.

on line do a search for an RV combo detector. I have a Safe-T-Alert combo propane/CO. It's not a smoke det. You also need a propane det.

Propane and CO Detectors/Alarms, Leak Dectector, Pressure Test Kit

You usually want the smoke detector on the ceiling and the propane detector on the floor. I have battery powered a CO detector with a digital readout that I like a lot. My smoke detector has a 10 year battery which is the life of a smoke detector. After 10 years, just replace.

10 year battery? I wouldn't mind one like that.
Could you please tell me what model it is.

I have the interior torn out of the trailer and thought I would add wiring for LPG, CO and smoke detectors. I've done the wiring for the LPG detector and thought it would look nicer and be easier to wire if I could find a combo smoke/CO detector.

It's a Walmart.com: First Alert 10-Year Tamper-Proof Smoke and Fire Detector: Home Improvement unit that I got at Wally World. Unfortunately the CO detector that I like, a Kidde KN-COPPPD-B has been harder to locate online. I like being able to see levels of CO that thave trigger the detector (if it happens, It has only happened to me as the result of the "Univolt" boiling the battery and off gasing) as well as the levels insufficient to trigger an alarm. Good diaginosing information.

Safe-T-Alert Model 35

The Safe-T-Alert model 35 has both a propane and CO detector. It should be out next month.

There is an older model that sells for a little over $100. RVupgrades.com has it. It's their part numbe 66-8836.
