Carbon Monoxide detectors that many RV owners purchase are common electro-chemical sensors found in most big box stores and in fact most any hardware outlet.

The down shifting of the trans can mask an improperly operating EB cylinder action. By observation you can determine the piston / PAC operation is normal by the deceleration of the MH. Down shifts when the circuit is activated are gauged by the distance it takes to stop using telephone poles as a measure. Typically they are spaced 100 feet apart. At 50 mph we can slow to 20 mph in about 250 feet with the PAC. note: (it was cheaper to get it, the piston, at Freightliner than a Cummins)
