Home Depot has a CO detector with a 10 year battery and digital readout. Can someone point me to a similar LP detector? I'll just ditch the piece of junk in my coach if I can get both with 10 year batteries and digital readouts.

Since propane is often powered by coach batteries, thinking the detecter mech ages out, not the battery.

Vince is correct but with 10 year batteries I can locate it away from the coach batteries without running 12 volt power.

Hopefully it will be more reliable than the junk that's installed now. Tired of LP alarms even when I have it off at the tank.

I still haven't been able to catch our alarm going off while im at home or fire station where i can get a real gas monitor and see if anything is truly triggering alarm. Last weekend camping it went off again at 3am. Im rather frustrated along with all of you about this junk of an alarm and almost certain its faulty alarms. Its just over a year old now. Whats the best route to replace or to contact for warranty issue?

Pull the CO detector, should be a mfg name and number on the back of it.

Another problem with the detector is the location of it. Placed in the stair well it picks up a lot of dust. Especially when sweeping out the coach. That can't be good for the detector.

While mine started acting up at about 8 months into ownership, when I finally figured out it was the unit and not something we were doing wrong it was 13 months and warranty with dealer expired. Dealer was NO help as usual for them. Called twice to the manufacturer of the alarm and never got any returned phone calls. Bunch of crap from all concerned.

I walked into a Campers World and bought one after we had unhooked the faulty alarm so we could get some sleep, Then had a scare of leaving propane burner on, unlit, when we were not in the camper and almost blew up the whole rig. I tell you dealing with anything RV related makes me feel like I am in some third world country. Spotty service and manufacturing, can't count on anybody to really be on your side and fulfill their obligation. GOOD LUCK!!!

This makes me tear up a little.

At the FR rally in Goshen this past August, we were located right next to the busy train tracks. When the wind was just right, passing trains would set off the alarm. We were also told that Lysol would do the same. Go figure.
