I will look into the leak soap, there is a Home Depot about a half hour away.


Just go to any store that sells toys (Wal-mart, drug etc.) and buy kids bubble maker. It works the same as the leak detector and costs about a buck.

If your detector is 8 years old, then yeah, it's probably due to be replaced. Mine went after just 6 years and started giving false alarms. I finally unplugged it, then replaced it before our next trip. No more problems now.

I have been told that sewer gas and or hair spray and or the family dog passing gas will set it off.

It isn't always the dog passing the gas. [emoticon]
