Just bought a new CO/LP detector(haven't even opened the box). The OEM had to be replaced because I couldn't get it to stay off alarm mode. Of course these things usually sound off at 2:00 am! Mine is wired in with the refrigerator, so turning off the breaker or pulling the fuse was not an option. The original was so sensitive that it would alarm when I would spray WD40 outside. The first time I experienced these alarms, years ago, it went off at 2:00 am when there was no gas bottle turned on and with using everything on electric. Never did figure that one out. But a low battery is an instant trigger to set it off. I even have a name for it but I'll refrain from using it here.
I've read many stories lately of people being found dead in their trailers possibly due to carbon monoxide poisoning. These detectors are not cheap but I have a lot invested in ME
, and I want to live a little bit longer.
