It seems like a lot of us are in the same boat. Mine says replace by Dec 2011 also.

I bought my Designer 18 months ago so I am still in warranty. A phone call to my dealer will be made first thing Monday morning.

Thanks for the heads up guys.

My warranty ran out in October. For those still in warranty I`m curious what the Jayco or dealer response will be on this. That sure seems like a short lifespan for a sensor. Like old/new tires that are sometimes put on, I gotta wonder how fresh these sensors were when they were installed. We may have to start a new thread about this, asking everyone to check the expiration date on the sensors as I had not heard of it before Quahog posted this.

So it looks like I'm a month late already.

Anyway, I haven't seen this discussed much before so I thought I'd ask if the rest of you do this regularly.
I have a question is the sensor in the center between the propane tanks and is glass with red, yellow or green showing if so mind has no date or wires conecting to it. It just has a sticker on top of the glass that says do not remove glass. What am I missing here?

It is inside the trailer and the purpose is to detect LP gas or Carbon monoxide fumes. Here is a pic of one.

Some are separate CO and LP sensors... but the one I have is a combination unit like this (mounted near the floor behind the dinette).

I was looking at the owner's manual on the sensor and it says to replace after 5 years. Strange that ours say "Dec 2011". Makes me really wonder if they had an old batch.

"Replace this SAFE-T-ALERT 35 SERIES CO / GAS propane alarm
within 5 years, of the production date on the back of the alarm."



"IMPORTANT: This unit must be replaced within five years of its
production date. Record the manufacture date in the section,
Owner’s Replacement Record, in this manual for future use. The
replacement date indicates the date beyond which the device may no
longer detect carbon monoxide, propane or natural gas accurately."

Thank you, I checked mine it says replace June 2015, My TT was built in Sept 2010, It is 2011 model, so it would seem I'm getting the 5 years on mine but everone should check it out.

My trailer was built in Sept. 09, so there must have been some old ones they used if the normal service life is 5 years from date of manufacture of the sensor.

I checked my 2007 Eagle today it has a LP unit without CO. I have a CO unit on the ceiling next to the Smoke Alarm. No replacement date on LP unit, just replace when light is yellow.
