83 Pace ?Arrow propane detector with valve control

I posted this on the general forum and it was suggested that I may have better luck in this forum, so I am posting the link to the original post to allow anyone whom may not have already seen it the chance to read what has been posted in response and then provide me with the feedback the may have, here is the original link:

http://www.irv2.com/forums/f59/propa...tml#post781529

After doing more research I have discovered that I may have to replace not only the detector but the valve and solenoid too, because the new ones are not compatible with the old, and I would prefer not to have to spend the extra $250. plus labor to do that but it that is the only way to get the system back on line I guess I will have no choice.

Sounds like you had a CCI detector, and it unfortunately died. There is a piece on this in this months Bounder Sounder that might lead the way. The replacement is available, just not a perfect match, like you mentioned.

Look at this one... it controlls the solenoid. Has to have the R as the last number in the part number for Relay.

detector

Indeed, I left that in place to at least control the propane from the inside and bought a Atwood Co and Propane detector that I will now install as a stand alone unit.

From what I remember, the CCI unit sends 12V to energize the relay, then immediately drops to 9V to hold it open, thus using less power. This CW unit apparently does not have this feature.

Thanks for the feedback, as I posted I was able to get the basic unit to work again minus the detector, so at least that was a start and I just bought an Atwood CO LP detector which I will install as a stand alone unit, right I have no intention right now to replace that valve, if I develop anther problem I will just remove it.

That does make me ask another question. I have read that CO detector should be mounted higher up in the coach than the LP, so where should a dual unit be installed?
