So I’m just wondering how is he repairing the CO part of the detector. I know my LP side is functioning properly, it would seem to me repairing the CO side has some liability that I wouldn’t want to be a part of. Not bashing here, just an honest question!


The CCI detectors do not have CO detection built in. Interesting that Safe T Plus has both in one device. LP detectors mount near the floor and CO should be mounted higher.

There is varying recommendations on WHERE to place a CO detector. A quick Google search will turn up answers ranging from 5"-20" above the floor, to 5' above the floor, to the claim that since CO mixes with the air equally, anywhere (including on the ceiling) will work. My Itasca does indeed have it on the ceiling in the bedroom; I know for a fact that it works, as it went off several times last year at Nascar when the RV next to me was running his generator without a Genturi.
