What you should know about RV propane gas detectors

Where are RV propane gas detectors fitted?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of where to fit an RV propane gas detector. Classic gas detectors for propane/butane should be installed near the floor, as LPG is heavier than air and collects on the floor in the event of a leak. You can find detailed installation and condition instructions for RV propane gas detectors in our download area.

Which RV propane gas detector or caravan gas detector?

CO detectors for motorhomes & caravans

Odourless carbon monoxide (CO) is far more dangerous for campers than LPG gas. This treacherous gas is colourless and tasteless and can only be detected with a special measuring device. CO is produced during combustion processes such as the barbecue or heating. If there is insufficient ventilation in the vehicle, there is a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. As soon as a certain concentration of carbon monoxide is reached in the caravan, the warning device reacts with an acoustic and often also a visual alarm. CO alarms are already mandatory in many areas and countries and are regarded as real lifesavers.

K.O. gas alarms and anaesthetic gas alarms

Urban legend or real threat? This will probably be very difficult to answer. Nevertheless, the topic of anaesthetic gas attacks on campers at home and abroad during the night has come up again and again, especially in recent years. To protect against knockout gas attacks by criminals in caravans, manufacturers such as Waeco or Thitronik offer appropriate detectors.

How does an RV propane gas detector work?

Gas detectors are real life insurance for campers in an emergency. Depending on the variant, gas detectors send an optical but definitely an acoustic signal as soon as a certain concentration of LPG (propane/butane) is measured in the vehicle.

The gas detectors from TriGas, Thitronik, Carbest or Safe-T-Alert are connected to the 12 V vehicle electrical system. In the USA, RV propane gas detectors have been mandatory for the registration of RVs, campers and other recreational vehicles for many years.

The most important thing is the quality and functionality of the gas detectors. There is nothing more disastrous than an investment in safety that turns out to be useless. Safe-T-Alert lp detectors for RV are tried and tested in both aftermarket and OEM applications.
