CO2 and LP gas detector

How do I kill power to my CO2 and LP gas detector? They remain on when I shut the house power down. I'm sure it will cause a batt. drain long term. Thanks.

How about just taking the battery out when not in use? Also, I've never heard anyone being hurt by CO2

Your best bet is to disconnect the negative battery cable, or install a master disconnect switch on the batteries. That way, all power is killed to the coach.

I have a kill switch for my propane detector. But I usually forget to turn it off and it has never been a problem with the batteries.I'm not sure I'd want to turn a carbon monoxide detector off. If CO was present in your RV and you entered, due to it being odorless, you could easily be overcome.
But if you had to, pull the plug or the fuse.

Found a kill switch adjacent to one of the main fuse panels. Does the job nicely.
