Having a propane or carbon monoxide gas leak in your RV is a scary situation that you don't want to even think about let alone experience. But this detector will give you peace of mind knowing that if there are dangerous levels of either, it'll quickly and accurately warn you and your family so you can get out of the RV and into fresh air.


Hard-to-Miss Visual and Audible Cues

When carbon monoxide is detected, the red LED will flash, and the horn will blare 4 times. When propane gas only or both propane and CO are detected, the red LED will come on, and the horn will be constant. And because the sensors are highly selective, they're designed to only sound the alarm for lethal gases, reducing the number of false alarms that occur in non-threatening scenarios.


It'll also alert you when the battery is low or when the detector has reached the end of its life and needs to be replaced, so you never have to be without protection.


Easy to Test and Silence


RV Safe Propane and CO Detector

To double check that the detector is operating normally, you can easily use the button on the front to test the propane sensor, carbon monoxide sensor, and battery voltage. You should test your detector every time it's taken out of storage and before it's taken out for each camping trip. This button also lets you silence the horn up to 5 minutes during non-life-threatening situations. So, you can turn off that annoying racket in the middle of the night while you're trying to hunt for a new battery.


Surface-Mount, Bolt-On Installation


RV Safe Detector Installed

The 2 included universal mounting brackets allow this detector to replace 90 percent of all OEM surface-mount and flush-mount detectors. This detector can replace most Atwood and Dometic branded detectors, as well as Safe-T-Alert 20 series, 25 series, 30 series, 35 series, 40 series, 45 series, and 65 series detectors.


Because propane gas is heavier than air, it'll settle near the floor, so this detector should be installed 4" to 18" from the floor to accurately detect the presence of gas. Also make sure that the detector is located in an area that isn't near a window or door, behind furniture or drapes, or in a closet. It also shouldn't be installed with 24" near a stove, oven, fridge, or furnace.

This unit easily replaced my Safe-T-Alert unit which is expensive and hard to find. It fit in the same hole and only needed me to drill holes for the slightly wider hole pattern. The unit works as advertised. It is pictured here beside the unit it replaced.

by:

5-yearold detector was going off constantly. OEM detector was unavailable. This one has adapter plates to cover the original hole. Easy replacement. It could use some longer screws, so I used the old ones.

Still great after a year. Even detected propane a couple times.

I hope it works, considering this is how etrailer shipped it . Keep in mind, this is a life/safety device that costs $[XX].

Easily replaced my second Safe-T~Alert with the Atwood . With two face plates it installed with no hole mods. Sure hope this works better than the other brand. Etrailer is great to work with ….excellent service and they keep you informed about your order status .

Arrived in the original retail package with a shipping label and not taped up. Contents were missing. In other words, the box was empty. Apparently, the contents were removed or fell out. The post office noticed this and placed a sticker saying contents missing.

Thank you for reaching out and letting us know. I have sent your information along to our customer service team and they should be reaching out in the near future.

It took about as long to get the tools out as it did to install this. Don't worry about grabbing a beverage before you start you won't need it. I liked having an option of a cover plate. I didn't like the way the longer one looked so I used the shorter one. And as big as the hole was for the original detector there was plenty of material to drill new holes an install the cover plate. What was also nice was I could use the original screws that were painted black for the cover plate. I tested it an it is loud so no worries there. I can't an hope I don't have to report on how well it works.

Easy to install and works great. Fits perfectly in the opening of our Safari-Condo Alto trailer.

Works as advertised. The unit covered the old hole for the old model Atwood 31011 with the extra cover plates. Very easy to install, only took 10 minutes.



- RS54FR
by:

This unit is great as a replacement because it comes with two different mounting frames. In my case the Atwood that came with our trailer, was inset so there was a good sized hole that we were able to cover and it looks nice.

Received the RS54Fr detector to replace my Safe T Alert 70-742 which is very hard to find and expensive. The new one comes with plates to help cover the holes from older units. It arrived fast and fit perfectly using the larger cover plate

I bought for a replacement in my RV. I would give 5 stars but took longer to be shipped than anticipated. Ordered on March 20th and today is April 14. I expected the late delivery seeing how I ordered express post on my last item and took 2 weeks.

Received the unit that I ordered 2 days early. But the bottom of the box was open due to not being taped closed, at first glance it appeared that something could be missing. Thank God even though the box was open all the parts were there! Better care should be taken in shipping.

The detector was very easy to install and the extra plate covered the original whole in the wall of the RV. Unfortunately the life of the detector is only 5 years, the old detector was 7 years.

Easy install - It’s a flush mount so no concerns about hole size except for covering the old one; which this did easily. Looks great!

Easy to install. Multiple face plates to cover whatever size hole you have

The detector picture looks like it's a very thin device ... and it is. Other than the 12 volt wiring, there's nothing behind the wall so this will fit most anywhere.

  • What Propane Gas Leak Detector do You Recommend for My RV?
    For a propane gas leak detector, I recommend using the RV Propane Gas Detector - 12 Volt - 2 Wire # RS64FR (white) or # RS54FR (black). This detector requires 8V-15V of DC power and has overall dimensions of 4-1/4" long x 2-5/8" wide x 1/2" thick. It also comes with a large and small mounting bracket for your application. It is important to note that these detectors do not include the required flat 1/2" self-tapping screws.

  • LP Gas And Carbon Monoxide Detector For An Atwood LP DOB 31013 LP Gas Detector
    Since the Atwood LP DOB 31013 is no longer available, your best option is to do a full replacement. I recommend going with the: -RV Propane Gas and Carbon Monoxide Detector # RS34FR for white, or the: -RV Propane Gas and Carbon Monoxide Detector # RS54FR for black. Both of these carbon monoxide detectors are flush mounted, measure 4-1/4" long, 2-5/8" wide, and 1/2" thick, and when either gas is detected a LED light and a loud horn will sound.

  • Replacement For RVCOLP-2 Propane & Carbon Monoxide Detector
    Based on what you are saying, it sounds like the detector is faulty and needs to be replaced; you did the right thing with vacuuming it and checking the batteries, as those are the two steps that need to be taken to ensure there isn't a dust/voltage issue. Since there is not, replacing it is the right move, and you can do so with either a White or Black color: - White: 2-Wire RV Propane Gas and Carbon Monoxide Detector # RS34FR - Black: 2-Wire RV Propane Gas and Carbon Monoxide Detector...

  • Carbon Monoxide / Propane Gas Alarm Availability & Recommendation
    Currently, the carbon monoxide and propane gas alarms we carry are made by RV Safe and are highly rated. Sadly, we do not carry the SAFE-T-ALERT alarm you describe. The alarms we do carry, the # RS54FR in Black or the # RS34FR in White will safely monitor the carbon monoxide and propane gas levels in your unit.

  • Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Detector Recommendation for RV/Camper
    While we do have some carbon monoxide and propane alarms, we do not specifically carry the Safe-T-Alert 70-742. This is because we do not carry Safe-T-Alert products. With that being said, we do have the RV Propane Gas and Carbon Monoxide Detector - 12 Volt - 2 Wire # RS54FR (black) and the # RS34FR (white). These detectors come with a compact, slim design and quickly and efficiently alert you for hazardous levels of propane and carbon monoxide inside your RV or camper. I went ahead...

  • Can I Use My Tankless Water Heater Over 2000 Feet Elevation.
    Yes it can, I have a solution for you. You have two options. First you can call your local gas utility and have them devalue the gas fuel. This will alter the BTU value. Second. You can derate the water heater, you can replace the main burner assembly orifice. This orifice controls the amount of fuel released into the water heaters combustion chamber. Reduce the orifice size and you reduce amount of fuel released. It is a small amount in reduction about 4% every 1000 feet. As a safety...
