This week-end was our first camping of the year. The carbone monoxyde went off during the night. I'll describe you the scenario
-I charged my both marine batteries using a Motomaster Automatic 10/2A Battery Charger. For my batteries, I used the beep cycle. So no over charge.
-I have 2 propane tanks. One is full (I didn't use that one), the other was 1/2 full. No leak from the bottles to the inside of my TT.
-Bathroom was used as normal used and we were 3 kids, my wife and me.
-Battery #1. Friday from 5pm to 11pm we just used the frigirator, water pompe, some lights, the oven, the hot water thank. At 11pm it get a bit colder so we decided to turn on the furnace, just to kill the humidity and the cold, so 15 minutes then good night!
-Saturday, we used the same thing as the day earlier, same way. The batterie was getting low, so I decided to change batteries. So the #1 is in my truck and the #2 is working.
-I went out of the bathroom and I walked toward my bed. My carbone monoxyde detector is on the wall few inches above the floor. Once I passed it, the alarm went off... but I the same time, the fridge and the furnace were working. I can tell you that is pretty scarry!
My wife and I tried to stop that noise. Once done, I went to see a camper who was still awake and I asked him to come to my TT to see if he can detect the propane or something weird. Nothing was found. From there we turned off the propane and the batterie. So no propane not batteries, what can happen? We opened the both vents and went back to bed... 2 hours latter! The only way we had to make the alarm turned off was... open the door.
-Sunday morning, 7 hours latter... I reconnected the battery then... bip bip bip!!! so it was not the propane neither the carbone monoxyde...
Now, do you know if the black water tank can be the cause of the carbone monoxyde?
