I recently looked a both a 2012 Aliner and Rockwood. I noted that much of the interior construction of the Aliner was made using staples, which protruded well out from the wood. On the Rockwood the same type of assemblies were screwed together. The Aliner staples cut my hand accidentally when I was checking wiring, which did not seem to be installed nearly as well as the Rockwood. I now hope to purchase a Rockwood 128s. I know they are not perfect, but they impress me as a good bit better of a unit compared to Aliner, or one Chalet I checked out. Like the price too.

Thanks Backpacker3, we hope it is the right choice. I bet you have no trouble pulling it with the Silverado. I'm wondering if I can pull it with a V6 Camry, standard class II hitch. Any thoughts?

T'aint necessarily so. Note that an A-frame is a small, confined space.

Tis necessarily so ...i personally went throught this problem a few years back. Too many problems are mis-diagnosed by other internet sites which hold absolutely no water.

hope to hear back from the origional poster .. its highly unlikely there was a propane/methane/arrisol or whatever leak.

We camped last weekend. Had ceiling vent open a bit the whole time and no alarms! Interesting link from dimurrrw. The hot water heater is right behind the detector!

I was told that's a CO detector, not a propane detector.
