CO is the silent killer, it will get you during the day, while sitting in a closed up RV.

You don't have to be sleeping, it will do that for you.

The only chance you have is a CO detector.
There are many warning signs of carbon monoxide poisoning if you're awake to recognize them. They include dull headache, weakness, dizziness, shortness of breath and nausea.

In addition, confusion and loss of consciousness are two other symptoms. If your CO sensor goes off while sleeping but you don't fully wake up due to confusion already setting in then you're in trouble.

I have slept in my Cambria several nights with the generator running right under our bed. No problems. Of course it's a risk but no more than rattling down the road in a rig with huge propane tanks and open flames (like your fridge) and then lots of batteries in close proximity as well. If I die in my sleep I hope in my MH in some place beautiful.

I like the noise, it and the AC (which is the only reason I would be running it) drown out pretty much everything that would otherwise wake us.
