carbon monoxide question

If I don't plan on getting a generator should I still get a detector?

Absolutely. Other sources of CO still exist (furnace, water heater, etc.). I have several in my house too. They alerted us to a faulty furnace before we had more serious problems.

If you have a furnace, stove, or water heater that uses combustion to heat (propane etc.), my answer would be 'yes.' I don't plan on getting a generator any time soon, but I will have the factory installed detector and will be adding a second one.

I just picked up my TT. I thought it had one but apparently it's just a smoke detector.

If your rig is new or relatively new it is required to have one installed. I would look thru your owners package or check with the "dealer" who did the PDI with you for documentation on it.

That's what I thought, yes it's brand new. I thought it was weird I got a user manual for one but did not come with one. Calling the dealer when they open. Thanks

You should have a combination LP and CO detector. It will generally be down near the floor, as LP is heavier than air. CO mixes with air, and doesn't really matter high or low.
