Wow. 28. My 42' toyhauler was at 2, all safety devices intact! 28 will suck it down fast.

I have a trmetric meter to install at Q, so I can try to begin to shed unnecessary loads. Looks like this is a needed one. Thx

Are you running LED lights in your coach? If not you're starting in the wrong place.

Yep. All except the 120's, and the long floresencts, which we dont use much off grid.

Propane is heavier than room air. So putting the sensor down at floor level was a totally reasonable decision.

Good The long florescence was the first thing I did because they were the cheapest and easiest and we used to use them a lot. That whole thing cost me $28 (both sides together)

Melvin, all the propane detectors are located at a low point in the galley. Usually below the fridge and some at the rear of the booth seat, which is next to the fridge. But you have a Royal interior not Blue Bird so what their rational is about putting it where a chair can hit it is unclear. Maybe you can relocate it or figure out a way to keep the chair leg from hitting the button. Maybe make a cover out of that black punched steel https://www.google.com/search?q=blac...ml%3B310%3B280

It would allow fumes to still be detected but protect the button.
