First I report that to suburban ask for the GM. Suburban has a man at the plant that is supposed to check these things. I know cause I had to contact them in order to have R/A installed the living space of my #8289. FR claimed that they use the space in the basement for R/A. Suburban documentation says it has to pull from the living occupied space. Suburban contacted there rep at the plant and found this was true. They immediately recontacted me to have FR cut in R/A vents. You can report it to the NHTSA but also report it to suburban, It will happen a lot faster, THANK_YOU for letting people know sometimes FR and reps make mistakes, but yours could have been a deadly one.....

I am brand new and couldn't find my other post. Also, I didn't want anyone to miss what happened because no one really thought to look for that.

Sorry that I broke some rules! I will be more careful.

The site team is aware of both threads and as of now we feel it's an important enough issue to have it posted in multiple places.

When I read your alarm problems, I said you needed to have it corrected before any use, thinking that you had obstruction in exhaust vents.
Few would take offense to re-posting. Just glad you got it fixed on second try.

Your dealer and FR should use this as an opportunity to restore your confidence in the total safety of your recent purchase. Keep that second alarm in there anyway and it's a reminder to the rest of us to pay attention this summer.

Please relax with the Roberts Rules of Order!
I would place people's lives and safety above a housekeeping rule.
We just received a new unit and will be sure to check.
Thank you. I would never have found this thread normally.

Here's a little nugget instead of searching thru the forums try clicking on the "Portal" header then you will see what is happening in all the forums real time (I think) and not miss something you feel in important. threads that are not being commented on don't show up in the portal after X amount of entires you would still have to look at that specific forum.

Moderator correct me if I'm wrong please
