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.

Safe-T-Alert STA-35-742, STA-30-441 or STA-30-442 Replace CCI 7770 and 7773 Series RV Propane Alarms

by Barbara 29. March 2010 07:37

Question about the Safe-T-Alert RV Propane Gas Alarms, Models 35-742, 30-441, 30-442 and 70-742

Question: "The CCI propane alarm in my RV needs replaced. I've just learned CCI is no longer in business. What are my options? Thanks, Tony."

Answer:  CCI closed down in February 2009.

To determine which unit you need, you need first to answer this question: Do you have a unit that shuts off the propane gas valve if there is a leak or is yours a propane gas alarm without an automatic gas valve shut-off?

For a unit that has a gas valve shut off, you need a 70-742-R Kit which is available in white, brown or black. This kit includes the solenoid valve. Do not connect the Safe-T-Alert to any other valve or you risk a fire. These units replace the 7719.04 and 7719.7.

For a recessed or flush mount propane alarm only, the recessed propane gas alarm model 30-442 in brown, white or black fits the CCI LP Gas Alarm Cut Out (7770 series) for Flush Mount Models. These can be mounted vertically or horizontally.

For a recessed or flush mount propane alarm only, you can add a carbon monoxide alarm and propane gas combination unit, the recessed 35-442 in brown, white or black fits the CCI LP Gas Alarm Cut Out (7770 series) for Flush Mount Models. These can be mounted vertically or horizontally.

For a surface mount propane alarm only, the 30-441 in brown and white replaces the CCI LP Gas Alarm 7770 surface mount series These can be mounted vertically or horizontally.  You can also get additional protection with a Safe-T-Alert 35-541, now available in black or white . This unit combines a propane gas alarm with a carbon monoxide alarm, all in the same case for economy of space.

For a combination carbon monoxide and propane gas alarm, choose the 35-542 recessed unit in brown , 35-542 recessed unit in white or the special order 35-542 recessed combination unit in black. The cut out is the same as the CCI 7700 series cut-out and identical to the Classic Series 30-442-P Safety Alert models.

Note: Some CCI units in Fleetwood or Winnebago RV's have two power leads, i.e. three wires. The Safe-T-Alert 30 and 35 series units have only one power lead. Connect the red power lead to the coach power supply and cap or remove the other power lead. Use butt connectors to replace any unit with spade connections.

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

I hope this helps.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely, Barbara

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.

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.
