I agree and will be buying a second CO detector. BUT, I'm not sure where the line is between paranoia and due care... but here goes:
I would not be quick to bet my life, and the family's, that the handheld CO detector is the one that is correct. I would have to be VERY sure the TT unit was defective and the handheld could be trusted. Until that happened, everyone would be awake, outside, and doors and windows would be open.
Is there an easy way (CO in a can or ??) to have confidence in both detectors
? Yes, some
report they sometimes
go off in the presence of RV antifreeze, but is that really a satisfactory test?
