thank you all again. there are a lot of good info i am absorbing... i do see the benefit of temp alarm system, along side of video. i will measure the actual temp inside engine bay in a normal driving condition so to decide the mounting place of a camera. with over 30+ years experience in info tech i think i can set up a reliable system for this purpose.

the video system i bought has a built-in function to record all or selected channels. it keeps recording and recycling the memory space until i stop it. i might record engine, fridge and front for analysis should an incident occurs.

Might consider the generator. If running it in the summer to keep coach cool you are setting right on top of that fire hazard. ?

Let's not forget to get those cameras focused on those pesky brakes. One down hill trip and it could go whoosh and up in flames !!

Another thing that no one has considered is an half empty fuel tank! Those fumes are just a bomb waiting to explode from any tiny spark that could engulf the entire Motorhome !! :-(

Whoa, not so fast with the 6 cameras.
As we sit upon our TETFORD doing our morning constitutional, have you considered the METHANE BOMB you are sitting atop of. Especially you smokers out there. Just one misplaced ash and you could be checking you roof antennas .
Challenger, do you know of a place that sells methane detectors that could be wired into the 6 Camera configuration ?

I understand you were probably just joking around here. But since so many people with different backgrounds read these threads I thought I should clarify. A spark cannot ignite diesel fumes. That's why diesels don't have spark plugs. And why many people prefer diesel generators of gasoline.

making sense... i googled websites, those gensets getting fire primarily were using propane or gas. the diesel ones have not had the fire issues. probably i can have less concerns...
