OH tests our's every day when she does the toast!!

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.

Good reminder

We have fitted two Kidde model 0910UK, with a ten year battery life and a 'push to hush' button.
Another good idea is to fit in confined spaces, ie, lockers, garage or under floor where there is electrical equipment..

see attached data sheet.

Bought a new 'Kidde' last week, will fit it soon as we are away for New Years Eve (The existing one is still fine, just doesn't have a 'hush' button).

Fed up of removing the battery every time we use the grill

Why didn't you just ring your local fire station and ask them for a free smoke alarm for your MH?

I have mentioned this loads of times in different post on MHF.

Faulty smoke alarm????

We took receipt of our 2005 Nuevo about 10 days ago. For the last 4 or 5 mornings we have heard the Dicon smoke alarm sounding round about 8.30 am.
I have changed the battery just to be sure that was ok, could the fairly quick change in temperature, from a frost to the sun shining on the van cause this, or should we just change the alarm for peace of mind? (it has'nt gone off at any other time of day)
It did get me out of the house quickly the first time though!!!
It does say in the leaflet that abnormal air conditions may cause false alarms,
Grateful for any comments,

Nabber
