FR forgot to put a furnace vent in our Vibe

I posted this under general but wanted to make sure it was posted here too.

Our CO detector went off last fall and we brought it in. Couldn't find anything. This week we are getting the camper ready and it goes off again. The digital detector read CO.

Turns out there was no vent to the outside from the camper. Than goodness my son slept with his window open.

It's fixed now, but I wanted to make sure that everyone knew.

We have a Vibe 272bh

Sometimes rules need to be ignored. In this case the information could save a life if more than one Vibe went down the production line and didn't get an exhaust vent installed.

I'm new to the forum and I missed the rule! Sorry. When I saw this page, I thought that I should have posted here and realized people might not see it in the other thread. It was so dangerous and everyone was so quick to tell us it was probably a defective detector that I thought it would be important for people to see it. I won't do it again

As far as I'm concerned, you couldn't post this topic in enough forums or sub-forums.

Thank you,

Bruce

There are those that only read the section that applies to the trailer that they own. Others may read that and the General. Sure had for someone to miss this important post because of a simple rule.

Thanks for the post. The forum is a learning processes, you are by far not the first to break a rule by mistake.

I second that, you have to wonder how many were made like this, and even the dealer missed it.
