CO light

Is it supposed to be flashing or steady green?

On ours blinking is normal operation. I would say its about a 5 second delay between blinks.

Until the day I die I will tell people to buy one with a digital read out. Especially in an RV. Takes out any of the guess work. I can look at mine and see when levels are increasing, it allows me to pop open a window and circulate some fresh air if need be.

The flashing is probably something that the manufacturer's have switched to. It would reduce the drain on the 12V system when not on shorepower.

On my 2012 Solera "S" the green light flashes when I first turn on the 12 Volt stairwell switch - for quite a while (minutes - maybe 5+ minutes). The propane seems to work normally during this period. The light eventually goes steady green.

My post was in reference to the CO detector. The LP detector is completely different.

Believe it is a combination CO and propane detector on the Solera.

My bad, I thought they were still separate. You would think for safety they would keep them apart so they could be mounted and the proper height.

I've had three or four Carbon Monoxide detectors over the years and they've always flashed red and steady red with alarm horn when gone off. I had to change mine this Georgetown after a few months it was giving off a expired code. The factory changed for free. My present one is made by Costar. The red flash simply means its checking the atomsphere.
