Propane detectors are really nice …but they do have a propensity for going off for ‘environmental ‘ reasons quite often….
Especially if you have a dog and/or eat bean dishes a lot.
In our last bus ,ours was going off all the time …scared me half to death every time it did.
I’d leap up , run around getting Millie & Becky out of the bus….then I’d look for the leak.
Eventually we figured out the ‘leak’ was coming out our dogs butt.
After that we pulled out our $50.00 ‘fart detector’.
I hear they’ve come up with models that are more propane gas specific….but they are pretty expensive.
I’ll put a good one in our trailer because I’ve seen the evidence first hand on what an explosion of LP gas can do.
When I was a little kid sitting in the back of our Rambler station wagon …in line at the gas pumps.
A car ahead of us blew up just like you see in the movies….
Turned out the dad was sitting up front smoking a cig …kids in the back were playing around and somehow knocked the valve off the propane tank….they had just filled.
It was a not very nice experience for me and ever since then I’ve been extremely paranoid about the stuff.
Stuff scares me so much I redid the LP lines in Latcho Drom 3 times just to be really safe.
