Review of Dometic Gas Detectors AT32703

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide Detector. This carbon monoxide detector alerts you to potentially dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in your RV. It detects levels as low as 30 ppm. The digital display shows the carbon monoxide reading as well as the battery level. So if the battery goes low it will indicate that here on the display.It uses fuel cell center technology so the fuel cell sensor gives an earlier alert when the carbon monoxide levels are high. And it's also less sensitive to false alarm triggers, especially when compared to other detectors.

It also has, right here, a peak level memory button. When you push that it will digitally display a record of the highest readings. And it also has a test reset button that lets you test the sound and reset to normal after an alarm.The unit also features indicator lights, which takes out all the guess work. So, a green light blinks periodically during normal operation. A red light flashes when the alarm is active.

And then, the red light will blink periodically if the batteries are low or if power is low.It does come with three double A batteries, as well as your mounting plate and mounting hardware. It uses a really neat, safe technology or a safety system, which are these spring-loaded pins here. That makes it really hard to reinstall on this plate if your batteries aren't installed. So, the whole purpose of that is to ensure that you have batteries installed in the unit before mounting it. And then this plate would mount to your wall.

It's got two mount holes on it. And it simply accepts the detector, slides on, snaps into place.But again the batteries are included. It is CSA certified and it's made in the USA.When it comes to the monitoring ability, we're looking up to 1500 square feet. The mounting plate itself, going this direction, measures about 4 1/2 inches. And going this direction it's about 4 1/4.

The mount holes are separated on center by 3 1/4 inches. The overall depth . that's how far it sticks out from the wall . is about 1 5/8 inch. The alarm intensity is 85 decibels at a distance of 10 feet. And the replacement date is 120 months, or 10 years after the installation.We're gonna go ahead and run through the test real quick. So it will beep once and then it will beep four times. It'll pause for a few seconds, and then beep another four times, followed by one single beep. So, we'll hold down the test button. And that's all there is to it.That's gonna do it for today's look at the Atwood RV Carbon Monoxide Detector.
