OEM LP Propane Detector Went Bad - CCI Controls Out of Business

Our OEM LP propane leak detector, Model 7770.2, made by CCI controls, factory installed on our 2005 Wildwood 37BHSS, has gone bad. It false alarms all the time, usually in the middle of the night, even with the gas shut off. I did some research online, and it appears that these units were defective on a large scale. That is, if you search on CCI and 7770.2, you will find numerous reports in 2005-2008 of RV owners reporting failing units, that CCI Controls replaced as defective under the product warranty.

Regrettably, it appears that CCI Controls is now out of business. Not sure if it is because the bulk of their LP detectors went bad, or the recession took them out instead. But, I am sure that NONE of their prior phone numbers work anymore and all are disconnected.

I think it is also important that FR RV owners be aware that if your CCI Controls OEM LP Leak detector starts false alarming on you, IT MAY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH A GAS LEAK - IT MAY BE A DEFECTIVE UNIT.

Fortunately, there are other LP leak detectors available for about $60 at CW, but it might behoove FR to offer some kind of program to deal with this new issue.

Any comments by Forest River technical staff on this issue would be welcome.

Thanks for the heads up!
FWIW if you google LP detector you can find flush mount detectors
for around $50 plus shipping of course.
