Attempted to dry camp one night in parking lot of grocery store, but CO detector started beeping, so, not wanting to go to sleep and never wake up, we drove on. I attempted to park with gen exhaust on downwind side. Any thoughts?

250 watt convertor was not large enough.

Fridge question- should I let fridge run on 12 volts while traveling or propane?
I would get generator exhaust fumes in my Sunseeker if any window or door was open while it was running. You may need a Genturi exhaust extension if that caused the beeping.

I have read that some people have experienced a dog or cat causing their alarm to beep.

Any advice on a good quality CO detector to replace my 08 models?

Go to a big box store and buy a Kidde with a digital display and a built-in 10 year battery. Mount it on a wall at eye level.

I installed one and replaced the combined LP/CO detector with an LP only detector. I got tired of false alarms.

Example:

Just wanted to say Hi. I too have a 3120DS - it's a 2014, one of the last of the breed.

I am looking for a new power invertor for running 2 TV's and a DVD player while driving. Thoughts on the below, will this suffice?

To tell, you need to add the watts, or amps, from each device to determine whether this inverter will work or not. At 1100 watts continuous and 2200 peak, you should be able to run LED or LCD TV's, the real question would be whether or not there is enough amps to run the DVD player. The 1100 watts equates to 9.17 amps. The owners manual should tell you the rating for each appliance. If you don't have the manuals, they usually can be found online.

Ok...updates...we have now made 3 trips...20, 850, and 450 miles for each. BT does not ever get below 2/3 on gauge...only takes a few seconds to drain. GW fills much faster with shower in use. Just purchased the reverse drain for flush as camper does not have a built in flush.

Also replaced the anode in the WH as it was completely gone.

Still researching power converter for tv.

What about good tv mounts to allow indoor and outdoor use of tv?

Power awning retracts very slow is this normal?
