NO2 Detectors

Has anyone seen or have a NO2 detector in their RV? I have looked and can't seem to find one. I find CO detectors and combinations with Smoke alarms but not for NO2. This would seem to be something you would want in a Diesel motorhome as a CO detector will not go off with diesel fumes. My company installs NO2 and CO sensors for parking garages because of this.
Any help on locating would be appreciated....

NO2 in Nitric Oxide. I believe you are thinking of NOx, oxides of Nitrogyn. I doubt if you will find any equipment to test for that in your motorhome. CO is still the killer and it is a byproduct of combustion for both gasoline engines as well as Diesel engines.

NO is Nitric Oxide...NO2 is nitrogen dioxide. Nitrogen dioxide is very toxic.

Nitrogen dioxide is toxic by inhalation. However, as the compound is acrid and easily detectable by smell at low concentrations, inhalation exposure can generally be avoided.
I'm pretty sure the CO (carbon monoxide) is going to kill you long before the nitrogen dioxide does, given that CO is odorless and tasteless.

There is notably little CO emissions from a properly running diesel engine. Under very odd conditions, there may be enough to cause symptoms but rarely death. Still - a CO detector is really important in all MH do to the effects of CO from Propane and from neighboring MH.

Or a "properly running" gas engine either. The ECM keeps it running at or very near 100% combustion, so no CO emitted.
