Consequently, can you get carbon monoxide in a camper?
In RVs, carbon monoxide gas usually results from: Exhaust leaks from either a vehicle engine or a generator. Improper use of portable gas powered heaters. Someone else's vehicle or generator when camping in close quarters.
Additionally, why does my RV carbon monoxide detector keep beeping? Low Battery Condition – The alarm will chirp once every 15 seconds to indicate the batteries need to be replaced. End of Life Warning – Seven years after initial power up, a Kidde CO alarm will begin chirping every 30 seconds. The chirp will not stop until the unit is powered off.
Herein, what causes a carbon monoxide detector to go off in a camper?
Re: Carbon Monoxide alarm going off. As stated above, we have found the most common reason for the alarm to go off is when for some reason we have low house batteries. That could be as a result of several things, such as a poor/dead battery, or you left a switch on.
Where should a carbon monoxide detector be placed in an RV?
“Unlike smoke, which rises to the ceiling, CO mixes with air. Recognizing this, a CO detector should be located at knee-height (which is about the same as prone sleeping height). Due to the possibility of tampering or damage by pets, children, vacuum cleaners and the like, it may be located up to chest height”.
