Atwood RV Gas Detectors - AT36681

Using fueled appliances in your RV can increase the risk of high levels of propane gas and carbon monoxide. Protect your family from both with one detector. Uses less power, gives early alerts with fewer false alarms, and lasts up to 7 years.


Features:

  • Carbon monoxide and propane gas detector alerts you to potentially dangerous levels of gas in your RV
    • Detects levels of CO as low as 30 ppm
    • Detects levels of LP gas as low as 2,000 ppm
  • Fuel-cell sensor gives an earlier alert when CO levels are high
    • Less sensitive to false-alarm triggers than other detectors
  • Test/reset button lets you test the sound and reset to normal after an alarm
  • 4 Indicator lights take out the guesswork
    • Carbon monoxide light goes on during active CO alarm
    • Propane light goes on during active LP gas alarm
    • Power light illuminates if power is low
    • Fault light lights up if maintenance is needed
  • Power conservation mode reserves current draw if your RV power surges or dips
    • Second power wire can be connected to auxiliary 12-volt battery for backup
  • Adapter plate included for flush-mount installation
  • White color
  • ETL tested for residential and RV use
  • CSA certified


Specs:

  • Wall cutout size: 3-9/16" long x 3-7/16" wide x 1" deep
  • RV voltage: 12 volt DC
  • Current draw: up to 75 mA
  • Alarm intensity: 85 decibels at a distance of 10'
  • 7-Year lifespan
  • 2-Year limited warranty


Note: Because LP gas is heavier than air, this detector should be installed no more than 18" from the floor so that it can accurately detect the amount of gas in your RV.


The risk of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning goes up when you use fuel-burning appliances, and propane (LP gas) is usually the first choice of power in RVs. This 2-in-1 alarm gives you early detection, and peace of mind from the possible dangers of both gasses.

Video Transcript for Atwood RV Gas Detectors - Carbon Monoxide and Propane Detector - AT36681 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Atwood RV carbon monoxide and propane gas detector. This carbon monoxide and propane gas detector alerts you to potentially dangerous levels of gas in your RV. It detects levels of carbon monoxide as low as 30 ppm and detects levels of LP gas as low as 2,000 ppm. It uses a fuel cell sensor which gives an earlier alert when carbon monoxide levels are high. It's also less sensitive to false alarm triggers when compared to other types or styles of detectors.Located right here is a test reset button. This lets you test the sound and reset to normal after an alarm.

Then it has four indicator lights. You have your power light right here, which illuminates to show that power is running to it. Nice bright green color. Then you have this one right here. This is your fault light.

This will light up if maintenance is needed. Then you have the propane light that goes on during active LP gas alarms. Then you have the carbon monoxide light that goes on during an active CO alarm.The unit features a power conservation mode which reserves current draw if your RV power surges or dips. Also, I do want to point out that the wiring, it's a three-wire design show you how a ground wire and then two power wires. The second power wire can be connected to an auxiliary 12-volt battery for backup.Mounting hardware is included, so it comes with the necessary mounting screws to get it installed.

It is available in white as well as black. White is part number AT36681. Black is available at etrailer.com with part number AT31012.The unit is ETL-tested for residential and RV use. It's CSA-certified. It's made in the USA.

I do want to show you the mounting. It has this plate that goes around that gives a nice finished look to the unit. When it comes to mounting you can see all the mount holes that goes around the perimeter for a nice, tight, secure installation.The size cutout that you're going to need in your wall needs to measure about 3-1/2" wide by 3-5/8" high. This is designed for 12-volt applications. When it comes to the overall measurements, edge to edge it's a square design so it measures 4-11/16" by 4-11/16". Then the thickness or how far it sticks out from your wall is only 1/2". Again, it is designed for 12-volt applications. The current draw is up to 75 milliamps. The alarm intensity is 85 decibels at a distance of about 10 feet. It has a seven-year lifespan.Now please note that because LP gas is heavier than air, this detector should installed no more than 18" from the floor so that it can accurately detect the amount of gas in your RV. I'm going to go ahead and run it through the test real quick. That way you can get an idea of the sequence of beeps and also how it sounds. That's going to do it for today's look at the Atwood RV carbon monoxide and propane gas detector.

Excellent product. I bought this to replace the 5 year old propane gas detector in our travel trailer. I appreciate that this detector is for both CO and propane, and that it's projected useful life is 7 years. 540879

This is the exact replacement for the one that came in my Chalet LTW Folding trailer. Needless to say, it was straight forward to install once I got the old one out. The manual says that the unit is good for 7 years after it's activated (powered on) so while the manufacturing date on the back may have relevance, the unit doesn't care. Make sure you record the date of installation. There is a stick that comes in the package but when I attempted to peel it of, a thin layer of paper stuck to the adhesive so it wouldn't stick. Not a biggie, just wrote on the manual. 352768

I cannot yet comment on the performance. This detector replaced an on-wall LP Gas detector. I like that it detects both propane and CO. I had a small 50-cent piece size hole in my wall, and had to enlarge it to 3" x 3" as this is an in-wall mount. Once mounted, it rises only 1/4" from the wall. I used a hacksaw blade to saw the hole for the mounting. Measure twice, cut once. If you have two power sources, such as battery and another, it has two power inputs. You may also wire the two inputs to one source, as I did. My batteries are on solar charge. When you first connect it, the light blips, but if you hit the test / reset button, it clears them all and leaves a small, green, LED power button. I have yet to test this, but hope to do so soon. 554548

  • Carbon Monoxide Detector and Propane Detector for RV Installation/Operation
  • The Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector - 12 Volt - White # AT36681 or black # AT31012 does not use backup batteries like a home unit but simply wires into your 12V trailer battery. The Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide Detector - LCD Digital Display - White # AT32703 and the non-digital display model # AT32701 both use 3 AA batteries and do not wire to your 12V trailer battery at all but they also do not have the propane detector.

  • Fault Alarm of Atwood Carbon Monoxide Detector Will Not Shut Off
  • I took a look at the owner's manual for the Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector # AT36681 and it does specify that if the Fault Mode will not clear then "the detector is not functioning properly and must be replaced" as you can see by the accompanying cutout of the manual I added. The Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector is available in both White # AT36681 and Black # AT31012. I have added links of video reviews of both products for you to check out as well.

  • How Long Does Atwood Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector AT31012 Last
  • The Atwood carbon monoxide/LP gas detector # AT31012 has a 7-year lifespan. That is assuming that it is regularly maintained according to the manual, linked for reference. Be sure to test the detector often to ensure it is functioning properly. This model is also available in white as # AT36681. Provided that the unit is functioning properly and within its lifespan you would not have to change it. But at around 7 years, even if working perfectly, it would be time to get a new one. This...

  • Replacement Carbon Monoxide Detector for RV
  • We do offer carbon monoxide detectors as well as combinations detectors that also protect you from propane gas leaks. Atwood offers their RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detectors # AT31012 (black) and # AT36681 (white). These are for 12V operation. For a CO-only detector you can use # AT32701. We do not have replacement components for your existing system.

  • Chirping Will Not Stop on Carbon Monoxide Detector
  • If you are certain the issue is not related to carbon monoxide (I am always weary when it comes to these type of questions as I want you to be absolutely certain) and the chirping is continuing, to be safe I recommend replacing the unit. You can do so with Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector # AT31012 (Black) or # AT36681 (White).

  • Installing Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector
  • When replacing your existing detector with the Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector # AT36681 you will not need to disconnect the 12V trailer batteries. It also does not matter which of the two power wires you connect first. The third (black) wire is for ground. I have attached a short video review on this unit that you can also check out.

  • Date of Manufacture Found on Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector - 12 Volt
  • I went out to our warehouse to check for you, however the Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector # AT36681 units are bubble packaged so I can't get that information for you. Regardless of that date you are seeking they come with a 2 year limited warranty from the date of purchase and have a 7 year lifespan.

  • Meaning of Blinking Light on Atwood Carbon Monoxide/Propane Gas Detector AT31012
  • My contact at Atwood advised that the light under the "Propane" label blinking red indicates the propane detector is disabled. The blinking indicates that the sensor is worn out and the unit should be replaced with either # AT36681 or # AT31012. For reference the complete instructions, including the procedure for testing this unit, will be sent to you in a separate email.

  • Recommended Replacement Carbon Monoxide Detector
  • The carbon monoxide detector I recommend for a replacement is the Atwood # AT36681. It will simply require a wall cutout size or 3-9/16" long x 3-7/16" wide and must be wired into the motor home's 12VDC system. I have attached a link to the installation manual so you can see exactly how to hook the system up, as well as a link to a video review for you to check out.

  • Are Two Power Supplies Needed to Install Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and LP Detector # AT36681
  • Two power supplies are needed for the Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector # AT36681 because if one were to fail it allows the other to act as a backup in case of a gas leak during the power outage.

  • Do Both Power Wires of Atwood Carbon Monoxide Detector Have to Be Ran
  • The second power wire for the # AT36681 does not have to be completed for it to function but it really is a good idea to run it to a secondary battery so that in the event of a primary battery failure the secondary battery will allow it to function and potentially prevent you from not realizing you are in danger.

  • Replacement Atwood RV Propane and Carbon Monoxide Detector
  • For a replacement combination LP Gas/CO detector for your RV you can use Atwood part # AT36681 (white) or part # AT31012 (black). Both are intended for installation at no more than 18" from the floor and both include a mounting plate. These are direct replacements for the unit shown in your photo. The detector # AT36720 you referenced is only an LP detector and does not provide CO2 warnings.

  • Difference Between Atwood Protechtor and Non-Digital Carbon Monoxide and LP Gas Detector
  • The Atwood 2001 Protechtor you have is for detecting just propane whereas the part # AT36681 detects propane and carbon monoxide.
    view full answer...

  • Does Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Detector Make Sound for Low Power
  • If there is a power issue with the Atwood detector, part # AT36681, the light will flash but there is no audible sound. There is an audible sound if carbon monoxide or a propane is detected or if the system has a fault but not for power loss. The detector is also available in black, part # AT31012.

  • Troubleshooting Atwood Protechtor Light Stopped Blinking
  • The Atwood Protechtor that you have on your trailer does not have a battery to replace but it does have a fuse that protects it that can be blown. Check out the picture I attached to see what I mean. You'll want to trace the wiring between the unit and the trailer battery to find the fuse and fix as needed.

  • Resetting Old Atwood ProTECHtor Propane Detector
  • The "Test" button on the Atwood ProTECHtor Series 2001 propane detector is on the left, as you can see by the accompanying photo that a customer sent in. Red is an alarm mode that should not be ignored, though in regards to resetting the unit, just press and hold the "Test" button as opposed to removing its power completely. The ProTECHtor you have is just a propane detector so you may want to upgrade to a newer, safer, dual propane/carbon monoxide detector, the Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide...

  • How Does Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector # AT36681 Install
  • The Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector # AT36681 was designed to fit into a cutout like what the picture I attached shows. The wires on the back would prevent it from being able to mount flush. Wall cutout size: 3-9/16" long x 3-7/16" wide x 1" deep

  • Atwood Carbon Monoxide Alarm Availability
  • The modern version of the Atwood carbon monoxide detector you sent in a picture of is the part # AT36681 which would work well but it is not the exact same as what you have. This also can detect propane.
    view full answer...

  • Why Does Atwood 36681 Carbon Monoxide / Propane Leak Detector Have Two Power Wires
  • The two red wires of the Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector # AT36681 are designed for powering the unit. The reason there are two wires is so that in the event one battery fails there's a backup in place so that it'll still function. If you ran both to the same battery the unit would function but it would not have that fail-safe mechanism in place.

  • Troubleshooting Atwood Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector Beeping
  • I took a look at the owner's manual of your Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector # AT31012 and the beeping every 40 seconds and the issue you are having is that "a fault has been detected that compromises some detector function." What you need to do is use push the Alarm Reset button to attempt to clear the fault. If this does not work, the owner's manual states that "the detector is not functioning properly and must be replaced." If you need to do so you can order...

  • Disconnecting Atwood Carbon Monoxide Detector AT36681
  • You will need to disconnect the Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector # AT36681 from its power supply in order to stop it from being active, so shutting off the power from the batteries means you will not have to disconnect the wires.

  • Atwood LP Gas and Carbon Monoxide Detector Indicator Lights Flashing Red and Yellow
  • You will most likely need to replace your Atwood carbon monoxide/LP gas detector # AT36681. It has a 7-year lifespan and if it has been in service longer than that it may not function properly. There are several things that the flashing lights could indicate: Power visual indicator flashing means the detector's power supply voltage is too high or too low. Carbon Monoxide indicator flashing means the CO alarm is disabled because the alarm is resetting or stabilizing OR the unit has...

  • How to Reset Awood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector
  • On your Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector # AT36681 there is a circle Reset/Test button on the top right hand corner of the unit. Simply pressing this button should reset the detector and silence any alarms assuming there isn't an internal fault that requires a complete replacement or the unit isn't actually detecting carbon monoxide. If it goes quiet but then starts chirping again then it could be a failed or weak power source. Make sure that the secondary battery it's...

  • Do RV Carbon Monoxide Detectors Use Internal Batteries
  • A detector such as the Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide Detector # AT32703 does use three replaceable AAA batteries which are included with the unit. These install by opening the small door on the rear of the unit. If your unit has internal batteries there will be a small compartment visible. If you cannot find this please send me a picture and brand and model information on your detector so I can check how it is constructed.
