When the dealer buys them by the gross from the lowest bidder, you usually get a perty cheapo CO detector. Mine died after 1 year so I went to Homely Depot and bought another for $29.00. So far so good.

you have a good point it does go off when it's hot outside. Last year when I had it parked and plugged in at the in-laws (out in the desert in Calif.) and the first time it got over 90 here at home. Must be the heat?

I had the same problem all weekend to the point where my dogs were shaking from the noise. I ended up pulling the fuse and dropped the coach off at the dealer where I am demanding a replacement.

I hear what your saying, problem is my dealer is 135 miles away and I hate to drive all the way up there for a device that I can replace myself if I could get the replacement detector.

25 bucks for one with a digital read out so you know exactly what is going on. Every RV should have one. There is no guessing! You don't have to stand there wondering if you really have a co problem or a faulty detector. You can see the number climbing long before it gets to a dangerous level.

One problem with the detectors in the RV's is they are CO and gas detectors. most of the detectors you get at hardware stores are going to be CO or CO and fire detectors.

I contacted the closest dealer to me today, waiting to hear back from them on it. It would cost me as much in fuel taking my rig up there as a new detector. Hate to do that for something this small.

Henry: If it were me, I'd purchase a replacement - you can get a plugintothewall type, then I'd leave the OEM one in place, don't throw it away... you could file claim and have it replaced next time you're in dealer's area; always nice to have a backup! Would your dealer initiate the claim by phone and possibly send you the unit for a self install? You could remove and send to them if necessary? Just some thoughts.

Ed

I just heard back from the dealer and their trying to work with me on the issue. They said the only problem is the warranty period is a bet over by about 10 days? They said they'd put in for it just the same and see what the factory says. Other wise they'll send me out a new detector. Have to see what happens next. Guess I get to see if the extended warranty will cover it.
