Smoke Detector Battery

As we all start to unwinterize our campers, please replace the battery in your smoke detectors.

They may have been beeping all winter and are now dead......

Don't be dead like the battery in your smoke detectors......

Good post, Jim. Hadn't even considered that yet but will replace this weekend. Thanks for the reminder.
Happy RVing,
Jeff

During the winterizing process, I remove all the batteries, leave the device like the smoke detector lid open, to remind me to install fresh batteries in the spring.

Thanks for the reminder, great idea to post it.


Just did this last night. Also for those of us with slightly older rigs (5+ years) remember to check the expiration dates on the CO detectors as well. I just bought TT, but it was expired in 2011. Went ahead and put a new one with a fresh battery in last night as well. Don't forget to inspect your fire extinguishers as well, both in your TT and your TV.


The smoke detector in my old TT was beeping throughout the winter. Even though I'm cleaning it out to sell as-is, I went ahead and put a fresh battery in for the next owner.
