But Carbon Monoxide, I don't know, does it have to be connected to the house battery for some reason. My house battery is usually dead. Or does it also come with a 5-yr battery?
The CO monitor uses the TT's battery for its source of power. If your battery is usually dead how does it operate your trailer brakes while traveling. If you pull your main fuse by the battery(s) after each camping trip and your battery is charged from the return trip, it will maintain its voltage for months. If it has been dead more than a few times it probably will not hold a charge. Probably time to replace it and start a battery maintenance program.
