You need to look at the exhaust gas content of diesel combustion. It doesn't create the levels of CO that a gasoline fueled engine does. It's main pollutants and health issues are particulates and NOX. You aren't going to die in your sleep.

Glad to know your detectors were working properly.. There is somewhat of a risk involved,,,,but in your case....it all came out well.

thanks for sharing

Thanks!!! This is very true....but kind of handy inbetween runs not to go through the riggers of all involved,,,,but a great idea for sure.....

Thanks!!

Also, be sure to check your generator plumbing. Connections should be tight with the exhaust tip poking out the side are from under the coach. Your genset is probably not installed in a compartment but rather hanging from underneath. Gets lots of air circulation this way. But, the floor above and walls should be caulked and sealed. Make sure they are.

Yes, i would hate for something to happen but honestly, the odds are very low. Sleeping in my own sweat, nope, nada, no way. I ain't good with that and i'll do my darndest to keep it from happening!
SWEAT!! No,,we don't want to sweat in bed,,,,this is a fact....But I have

learned over the years,,,,a little bit of sweat never hurt anyone....Layed in the dirt in Nam sweating like a pig,,,,and like you say,,,shouldn't have to do this in my RV,,,,that is unless the DW is involved,,,,,,


Thank you MudFrog !!


you seem to be a cool dude !!

Well, that's a really useless response, and sorta brings out the other face.

I'm starting to doubt the legitimacy of this thread also.

It seems the OP is fishing for a battle, not for useful information.

Are we wasting our time on a joke???

I enjoy and get great info from the forum,,,,,but there are those no matter

what you say will "FLAME" most anywhere they see an opening.....You might just fit this mold....don't really know......

I for one have had a problem with this area of reading certain reply posts

So, Again,,,,I will say,,,,THANKS to the ones on here that answer questions
the way it should be. Take it any which way you want,,,that is your DNA speaking....

End of Subject,,,,,type on if you must,,,,I will not respond to anymore nonsence...

Happy Trails and safe travels to you all !!!!
