UL and CSA Require RV CO and Propane Gas Alarms Stop Working in 3-5 Years

by Barbara 28. April 2012 10:03

Question about life span of carbon monoxide and propane monitor/alarms in RV's and trailers.

Q: "My RV has the original carbon monoxide and propane monitors. When should I replace them? Thanks Tom."

Answer: Safe Home recently learned that all newly manufactured 12V propane alarms and carbon monoxide alarms, whether combination alarms or single alarms, must include an internal shut-down system. The Safe-T-Alert brand we sell has an internal warning system that beeps and flashes when the sensor is dying and then beeps and flashes when the unit shuts down from sensor failure. Typical life is 3 to 5 years unless the sensors are exposed to aerosols such as spray deodorants, cooking sprays, cleaners, etc. Note the date of installation on the outside of the unit with a sticker or log into your owner's manual so you won't be awakened in the middle of no where with the bad news that your units are or have failed.

Below is the information we received from Safe-T-Alert in April 2012 to share with customers.

CARBON MONOXIDE & PROPANE ALARM REPLACEMENT NOTICE: Note to Customers:

All Safe-T-Alert Propane and Carbon Monoxide Alarms that are 5 years old and older are beyond their Mandatory Replacement Time and MUST be replaced.

Background: Underwriters’ Laboratories (UL®) Carbon Monoxide Standard UL 2034 and Canadian Standards Association (CSA®) CSA 119.2 now require that all Carbon Monoxide alarms be designed to stop service in 3 to 5 years . UL and CSA have determined that Carbon Monoxide alarms have a limited life. Propane alarms use similar sensors and UL will require the same service life in the near future.

ALL MTI Propane and Carbon Monoxide alarms which are over five (5) years old MUST be replaced. The following Safe-T-Alert Carbon Monoxide Alarm Models MUST be replaced: SA-4, SA-5, 50-541 and 50-542. Models 60-541 and 60-542 over five (5) years old MUST be replaced.The following Safe-T-Alert Propane Alarms Models MUST be replaced: SA-7 and SA-8. Models 30-441,30-442, 40-441 and 40-442 that are over five (5) years old MUST be replaced.

Important! Only install CO and Propane alarms that are UL or CSA listed for Recreational Vehicle Use.

Thank you for your question.

Sincerely,

Barbara

 

 

Chart Showing Safe-T-Alert Replacement 12V Propane Alarms CCI Controls Alarms

by Barbara 26. April 2012 10:35

Question about replacing CCI Controls Propane Gas Alarms and Propane Alarms with Tank Valve Shut-Offs with Comparable Safe-T-Alert models.

Q: "My CCI propane alarm in my RV has failed. What unit is available as a replacement since CCI Controls is not in business?" Thanks. Ed

Answer: Below is a chart. The entire unit must be replaced if your CCI Controls unit has an automatic gas valve shut off. Safe-T-Alert replacements for that unit will not work with the CCI valve. Note: new standards require that propane alarms shut down 5 years after installed to power. Shelf life is 10 years if not used.

Below is our main replacement chart.

Note: the 30-442 and 35-442 share the same case size. Both recess into the wall so the unit front is flush with the wall. The 35-742 gives you extra safety as you have a carbon monoxide sensor with alarm in the same unit. Please contact Safe Home at sales@safehomeproducts.com or phone us if you have questions. We also sell Costar 9RV battery powered carbon monoxide alarms and Costar 12RV alarms with 9 volt battery back-up systems. Remember that propane leaks are dangerous and carbon monoxide are as well because they can kill silently.

by Barbara 2. February 2010 04:28

Question about the Safe-T-Alert 12V Propane Gas Alarm Series 70 for Motorhome and RV Use.

Q: "I use my RV for occasional trips. I tried resetting my CCI 7719 gas alarm with automatic shut-off valve a dozen times before I could get it to open today. I need to replace the unit but CCI controls shut down in 2009.  Do you have a replacement unit? The CCI unit is mounted vertically." Thanks. Don from Arizona.

Answer: Don, you are in luck. Safe-T-Alert just announced a new unit that replaces the CCI Controls propane unit with valve shut-off. The unit is called the 70-742-R-KIT. Included is a combination carbon monoxide and propane gas monitor, a relay to connect to the gas shut off valve and an automatic shut off valve. This valve is for 1/4 inch lines but includes an adapter for 3/8 inch gas lines. It is very important that you replace both your current valve and the malfunctioning CCI unit. The manufacturer warns that otherwise there is danger of a fire. The Safe-T-Alert 70-742 Kit comes in brown black and white. The bonus is that you also get a UL listed carbon monoxide alarm as well as the propane alarm and automatic shut off valve. The unit can be mounted vertically or horizontally.

  • Gas Level Confirmation: 8 Seconds.
  • CO Alarm Trigger: Less than 15 minutes at 400 parts per million.
  • Test/Reset Button - Tests all detector functions with one touch. Resets and Mutes alarm while safety and corrective actions are taken.
  • >Alarm is fully operational during mute cycle and will re-alarm if hazardous conditions reoccur.
  • Two Indicator Lights: Red CO LED flashes with 4 beeps and 5 seconds silence if CO level is over 70 ppm. Red Gas LED flashes and alarm sounds steady tone when dangerous propane or natural gas level is detected.

Minimum Battery Voltage for an RV Gas Alarm?

by Barbara 3. March 2008 06:46

Q:"What is the minimum battery voltage, below the nominal 12 Volts, that the Safe-T-Alert SM-STA-30-441RV requires for operation?" Thanks. Craig.

Answer: This propane gas alarm for recreational vehicles requires at least 7 volts to operate. This is the slim line surface mount unit with a case that measures 6"W x 1.875"H x 1.5"D. If you have the room, you might want to consider the Safe-T-Alert 40-441RV as this propane alarm operates on 6 volts to 16 volts with a very low current draw of 46 milliamp (0.046 amp.).

Hope this helps with your decision.

Sincerely, Barbara
