How we know our propane detector works


Staff member
We were boondocking in a WalMart parking lot in Sterling, CO. We were sound asleep when an alarm inside the trailer woke us up. I had no idea what it could be, until I got my wits about me and realized the propane detector had a red light, instead of green. I thought it was malfunctioning, well maybe I didn't have my wits at that point. I silenced the alarm and got back in bed. A few minutes later it went off again. Realizing that I should check the stovetop, I found one of the burners was left in the low position, probably after being bumped.

I'm glad we have a propane detector.
