Fuse for Protector LP Detector

I am having a problem with my Protechtor LP Detector on my 2005 Safari. It was sounding an audible alarm and the light was a constant orange/yellow. I took the leads off the detector to reset it and reassembled it. Now I get no sign the the detector is getting power.

There seems to be an inline 1 amp fuse but I cannot find where it is. I only find a white and a red wire without a fuse connection.

Does anyone know how and where to access this 1 amp fuse?

Larry

Never could find the fuse on mine, either. It's not in any of the fuse panels in my Interstate, and if it's an in-line fuse, it must be hidden behind/under some cabinetry that I don't want to dismantle. Assuming an in-line fuse holder was even installed, which there's no guarantee that it was.

I had a problem with my ProTechTor LP Gas detector on my very first trip in my Interstate. It started beeping one beep per minute, with the light on orange, which indicated a system fault. Problem was, I didn't have an owner's manual, until I found one available for download from the Atwood web page, after the trip was over. Only after I downloaded the manual did I find out that the orange light and one beep per minute indicated a system fault, and all I had to do was turn off all electric power in my Interstate for a minute, and the stupid LPG detector would reset itself.

How did you take the leads off yours without cutting the wires? On mine, that's the only way to disconnect it. No plugs anywhere that I can find, all the way from the detector back to where the wires disappear behind a cabinetry panel.

Ok well tonight I went to replace my lp alarm (every 6-7 years they say) and now I have no power at the wiring. I checked the new unit at the battery and it works. Where is this fuse? Did anyone find it?

Mine had a fuse in an inline holder inside the wall before I removed it and placed it in the trash.

I have a '97 Safari and the fuse is an in-line fuse. It is located in the battery compartment on the left side when looking into the access door and along the front wall.

Are you sure the problem isn't a low battery, this can cause the yellowlight condition with a beeping sound.

dennis, that makes sense since the detector bypasses the disconnect switch.

Just got home from the trailer storage place. Looked and Looked for a fuse holder- no success. I see your post and will return once I cool off from the heat. No at least in my case the battery is fully charged. They are kept on a charger and it keeps them conditioned and charged; so in essence, I am plugged in. I checked the LP detector at the battery and it comes on and flashes red for a while before going solid green. My old one flashed green. This one also does not say protechtor on it nor does it fit very well. I used the mount adapter they include. It works but looks loose just looking at it.

Location of fuse:

I will now look outside in the battery box for a fuse holder first. Then I guess the next step will be behind the couch where the electric comes into the interior.

I am not sure if I was clear enough. My Safari has the fuse holder is inside the battery compartment, which is actually inside the trailer and behind the couch, but can be accessed from the outside compartment door at the front of the trailer (behind the propane tanks). If I look under the couch I can not see the fuse holder as there is a panel that covers the battery compartment from the inside.

When this happened to me, when I was on the charger or "shore power" the condition did not manifest, but off the charger, once the battery drained slightly the yellow light came on and the audible beep could be heard. Took the battery down and had it tested, then replaced it and the problem with the sensor went away.

This view is from inside the trailer with the couch removed (I am replacing the flooring). The diagonal wire just under the wall plug and above the converter, is the fuse for the LP sensor.

In the picture (click for a larger view) you will see a black wire with a white tracer. Just behind the converter it is spliced to a red wire. If you follow that down and to the left you can make out the fuse holder behind the other red wires.

Hope this helps

Dennis you are great. Thanks for the pick. I got home about an hour ago from my second trip over to the AS. I had to go under the couch, remove the panel and from there I found the single in-line 1 Amp fuse holder. The fuse was blown. Got a new fuse and put it all back together with a green light on my LP Monitor Alarm box.

Thanks to everyone. I hope the others found their fuse holder!
