Keep Your Family Safe in Your RV with a Carbon Monoxide Detector
Carbon Monoxide is a silent killer. It is an odorless and colorless gas that is toxic to humans. Oftentimes, people do not realize that a carbon monoxide leak is happening until it is far too late. Carbon monoxide can come from different sources, such as a motor engine, a furnace or any other type of fuel-burning equipment. Having a carbon monoxide detector in your RV or motor home is absolutely essential.
Carbon monoxide detectors measure the amount of carbon monoxide in an enclosed space. It sounds an alarm when there is a dangerous amount detected. In the event of a leak, it is critical that occupants get fresh air as soon as a carbon monoxide detector triggers the alarm. Most carbon monoxide detectors will emit certain alarm patterns that correspond to the level of carbon monoxide. Make sure to be familiar with the specific beep patterns of your detector. Keep in mind, however, that a leak of any level is an urgent matter.
It is also extremely important to keep batteries in check. Carbon monoxide detectors usually have a beep pattern to remind you to replace batteries. Most detectors have protection against accidental disconnection, but it is still important to have them checked regularly.
