Do you have a carbon monoxide detector?

I sure hope he's got a co detector. That's scary.

Why would I not? Not sure I follow. Certain camper brands not carry CO detectors?

My 09 pop-up had a co detector, and this gulf stream listed it as standard. No idea where it is at.

I did, however disconnect the smoke alarm. If I cook with oil, no matter how low the flame, it goes off. I hope the smoke and CO alarms are not one unit now.

I really not worried about it. I don't use the gas too often. Cook and boil water for tea. Run the hot water for three hours in the evenings. Furance maybe 30 min in the early morning. The risk seems rather low?

Please, buy another smoke alarm and put it where the kitchen smoke won't set it off, but you can still have it to wake you if a fire starts.

Disconnect your smoke detector ONLY while you are cooking and reset it after. Seriously! You are taking a big gamble with your life!

There's a new detector called 'Nest', and with false or nuisance alarms, you can wave your hand near it and it shuts off sound for a time. Not sure how long but maybe worth looking into. Saw one at Home Depot. Be a nice Christmas present to oneself!!

I know. I cook, I eat, wash the dishes, and then watch TV. Keep forgetting to put the the battery back. Oh well. At least I have half a million in life insurance. Wife will end up with a new Class C out of it.

My older TT did not have a CO detector. And, my replacement smoke detector has a button on it to silence it if it goes off when cooking.

I have a 2014 model year. Specs listed a CO. But I didn't think of a silence button. That would be really cool if it did that. I'll have to check that out. thanks!

we spent 2 winters living in Indiana (NW of Indy) in our 5th wheel. We prepared much like you have mentioned. We enjoyed our time there in the winter, took a little more work and preparation but it can be done with little inconvenience. We saw temps dip sub zero several times in those two years and we did fine.
One thing I did versus your set up was to run PVC pipe in place of the plastic slinky hose. They have rubber connections that can easily be attached to your RV with pipe clamps. I was able to get a good angle on the pipe for drainage and left my grey valve open and dumping my black once a week or so. This avoids any issues with the slinky trapping some water and then becoming a block of ice.

Where are you located at in Southern In.? We have been working at Amazon in Cambellsville Kentucky so have been fighting the same fight with the cold here.

In Evansville, just across the river from Henderson.

I was taken a bit off guard. This is my second winter in Evansville. Last winter I only remember one or two snow and ice days. I was indoor then, so thought if it was this mild down there, I'd have no problem camping.

Yep, it got really cold early this year but who knows, may have a heat wave in January.
