It'll be real close to the floor sometimes next to or under the converter.

I've got a smoke detector (ceiling) and a propane detector (near floor) in my TT. No CO detector....

I believe I have the same scenario. I think I will grab a CO detector at Lowes

I thought they used a combination propane/co detector.
Am I mistaken?

I added a CO detector just this past weekend after the fire inspector suggested it. We have to get it inspected here in KY before I could transfer the title. Cheap and can't hurt to have it so I did it. Didn't even think that the LP one might be doing both. If it is then I'm just double covered.

CO (carbon monoxide) is slightly lighter than air and should be placed near the ceiling, preferably in the bedroom. Propane is heavier than air and should be placed near the floor. Smoke detectors should be placed on the ceiling. You might have a combination smoke/CO detector so check the manuals that came with your trailer. In my Silverback I have separate units, CO detector in the bedroom, smoke detector in the hallway, propane detector in the kitchen area near the floor.

My 2010 model has it right above the bed, as Oakman suggested. All three of my detectors are separate.

We have the smoke detector in the living area, the propane detector near the floor and the CO detector on the ceiling in the bedroom. They where all installed from the factory. I first thought that the CO detector was a second smoke detector.

Curiosity got the better of me, so I went out and checked.
We have a combination propane/carbon monoxide detector like I thought, and it is mounted near the floor across from the furnace.
As a faulty furnace is the most likely cause of carbon monoxide, the detector probably doesn't have to be mounted on the ceiling, as the turbulence from the furnace fan would distribute the gas fairly evenly throughout the camper, floor and all.
