hello and welcome.

I've not heard of any; so you mean an alarm to detect leaks, or a CO alarm to detect poisonous fumes from faulty equipment?

As far as I know, the only motorhoming Oxford United supporter in Bognor.

I don't feed trolls!

Ever heard of any requirement either, well certainly not in the U.K. Looking at your name I am guessing you live elsewhere??

There is an inbuilt alarm of sorts, it’s called a “stentching agent” and it is exactly that, an agent that’s put into gas that smells horrible to act as an alert as natural gas has no inherent smell!

Oh, and welcome to the forum


Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
