This Carbon Monoxide Detector Is Not

  • Designed to detect any gas other than Carbon Monoxide.
  • To be seen as a substitute for the proper servicing of fuel-burning appliances.
  • To be used on an intermittent basis, or as a portable alarm for spillage of combustion products from fuel-burning appliances.

NOTE
This Carbon Monoxide detector is designed for indoor use only. Do not be exposed to rain or moisture. Do not knock or drop the alarm. Do not open or tamper with the alarm as this could cause malfunction. The detector will not protect against the risk of Carbon Monoxide poisoning when the batteries are dead or missing. The alarm will only indicate the presence of Carbon Monoxide gas at the sensor. Carbon Monoxide gas may be present in other areas.

Important Safety Precautions

Interstate 19 security features

  • Ideally, it is recommended that a Carbon Monoxide detector should be installed in or near every room that has a fuel-burning appliance such as any room heaters, water heaters, cookers, grills, etc.
  • Ensure that the alarm horn can be heard by all those who are intended to hear it. Seek medical help if it is suspected that a user of the RV is suffering from Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
  • If the alarm sounds, make sure to investigate the problem. Ignoring the alarm may result in sickness, injury, or death. (CO may be present even if nothing is seen or smelled by the user.)
  • Room spaces should be well-ventilated when household cleaning supplies are used as these may cause a false alarm.

What Is Carbon Monoxide

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a highly poisonous gas that is released when fuels are burned. It is invisible, has no smell, and is therefore very difficult to detect with the human senses. Under normal conditions, in a room where fuel-burning appliances are well maintained and correctly ventilated, the amount of CO released into the room by appliances is not dangerous. These fuels include wood, coal, charcoal, oil, natural gas, gasoline, kerosene, and propane. Common appliances are often sources of CO. If they are not properly maintained, are improperly ventilated, or malfunction, CO levels can rise quickly. CO is a real danger in air-tight vehicles with added insulation, sealed windows, and other weatherproofing that can trap CO inside.
Conditions that can result in potentially dangerous CO situations

  1. Excessive spillage or reverse-venting of fuel-burning appliances caused by outdoor conditions, such as:
    • Wind direction and/or velocity, including high gusts of wind.
    • Heavy air in the vent pipes (cold/humid air with extended periods between cycles).
    • Negative pressure differential resulting from the use of exhaust fans.
    • Simultaneous operation of several fuel-burning appliances competing for limited internal air.
    • Vent-pipe connections vibrate loose from clothes dryers, furnaces, or water heaters.
    • Obstructions in unconventional vent-pipe designs can amplify the above situations.
  2. Extended use of un-vented fuel-burning devices.
  3. Temperature increase that can trap exhaust gases near the ground.

Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

  • Mild Exposure – Slight headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue (flu-like symptoms).
  • Medium Exposure – Throbbing headache, drowsiness, confusion, fast heart rate.
  • Extreme Exposure – Convulsions, unconsciousness, heart and lung failure. Exposure to CO can cause brain damage and/or death.

WARNING
The Smoke/CO detector is shipped with batteries deactivated. Ask your dealer to activate batteries or activate batteries immediately upon delivery. Failure to follow this warning will remove your protection.

Many causes of reported CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING indicate that while victims are aware that they are not well, they become so disoriented that they are unable to save themselves by either exiting the area or calling for assistance. Also, young children and pets may be the first to be affected.

Test Units in your touring coach after the vehicle has been in storage, before each trip, and at least once a week while in use. If the alarm ever fails to test correctly, have it replaced immediately. If the alarm is not working properly, it cannot alert you to a problem. Failure to test units used in RVs as described may remove your protection.
