I would want the remote sensor as there has been at least one report of a fire that did not trip the extinguisher because it was mounted horizontlal just inside the access panel where cooler air was being sucked into the cavity by the fire above the extinguisher.

I lined the bottom of the frig compartment with aluminum tape and this is my installation. I made the red bracket.

Hey Hardy 1000, just some thoughts on your installation. Very nice but, if a fire were to start its going to melt the nylon gas line and you will loose the coach. I would change that to copper as thats the safest way. Never have seen someone hook up a gas unit with a nylon hose. Just my two cents worth.

Gas line looks like black rubber of some type.

The nylon line is water supply to the ice maker.
