Don't forget to change battery's in all your various detectors --- CO, Smoke, etc.

Time to start getting your rigs ready - summer may happen at any moment..

Thanks for the reminder, it came after I just joined and started looking for a fix for our beeping detector. Can I ask you a question? The other day I heard the thing beep every so often for hours like a regular smoke detector does when battery low. I pulled away from ceiling finding it hard wired powered as well. Not finding a manual in our mh paperwork folder I decided to change the battery as I normally do in our smoke alarms. Well the next day it started to beep regularly again. Hmm. So I thought maybe the power needed to be shut off while battery installed, and tried that. It is still beeping like it needs a battery hours after I replaced. I am missing something here, can you shed some light please. I don't want to call a repairman as the rv is a 2010 and got brand new Feb. of 2010 so hoping it is not broken broken already... Thanks

We had a smoke detector that did that. I used a can of air to blow the dust out of it...easy fix. Bob

Though I have found explosive Gas detectors at super stores (I do not think it was a Wal-Mart though) you will have your best luck at an RV store.. They sell models specifically designed for RV use. Many of these are designed to run off the RV's 12volt system so you don't have to feed 'em batteries all the time.

Thus I'd recommend Camping world or any RV dealer.

I ordered a detector from that sight last week, different model, same price. At time of order gave a projected delivery of 4/5, as of today hasn't shipped yet.
