Pull the Propane detector. Most have an expiration date on a sticker on the back/side. With a 2005 unit unless the detector has been replaced, it is more than 12yrs old. Replace it with a new CO/Propane detector . Cheap insurance.

Typical rv installs are a hard wired CO/LP detector mounted near the floor and a battery operated CO/SMOKE detector (could be more than one) mounted in the ceiling. Of course the ceiling units may just be smoke detectors.

I found my answer because Google is my friend. Propane detector only! Going to the big box store today for a CO detector. Going to order a new propane detector but it will not be form/fit. Oh well, I'll make it look good.

LP/CO detector Lifetime!

Just to forewarn everyone: The Safe-T-Alert LP/CO detector in my 2011 Georgetown 300FWS just failed( beyond its advertised time period in small print on faceplate) and the new unit costs over $300 plus installation whereas a new solenoid installation is required also!
MTI Industries now will receive a minimum of $300 every 60 months based upon the predicted lifetime of this high tech unit!
There is no alternative to this detector that I have found!

George

Our LP detector reached end of life malfunction on recent trip after passing replacement date, the dealer sent one to our home shortly after return about $70 delivered. I like having individual alarms for co, smoke and lp gas as they are easier to distinguish although LP alarm is not easily read near floor
