My last couple of posts was meant to argue that if you are only using a wood stove / burning wood, then you wouldn't have to buy a low oxygen alarm, that a smoke detector would be good enough.

There's no opening for a woodstove to release CO into the bus.

Goes back to this statement. But now I see you were talking about Carbon Monoxide rather than Carbon Dioxide.

So if the wood stove is burning and taking oxygen from the room, that will either be replaced by a leaky window / engine dashboard or door with fresh air, or it will cause down-drafting putting some smoke in the room for a smoke detector to detect. So you can see if you are running low on oxygen by detecting smoke.

Re: Gustav

I'm getting ready to mount my water tanks. I bought them un-customized and now I'm supposed to add a fittings. I'd like to add a simple barb fitting for a hose and hose clamp. I don't have access to the inside of the tank to screw on something to the back of the fitting. Does anyone have any pointers to websites or even search terms for looking up how to do this? I imagine there'd be some kind of adhesive or plastic solder that I drill and plug and epoxy?
