Default CO monitor

Likely not necessary but I decided to add a CO monitor, it is possible that aluminum casting of Espar D2 combustion chamber can crack but it is unlikely, well, just in case. Found the smallest CO sensor on the market.

I used 3M VHB LSI tape to attach it to HDPE (LSI means low surface energy), we will see how good it will work. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I ordered the one you got. The problem is it's alarm is not very loud at all. If I'm sound asleep, there is no way I'll notice it. I think it GOOD for pilots/professional drivers and WILL SEE THE RED WARNING LIGHTS FLASHING.

I got this one instead and had this in my prior RV's. See pic.

I should have updated this post, the unit from the first post was unpredictable so I returned it to Amazon. I purchased another one which works well and it is almost as small. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I tested the unit with chocked flame from a small alcohol burner (very yellow flame) and got the unit to sound the alarm, time will tell if this unit will last.
