How to Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in your Caravan or Motorhome

Here are just a few ways that you can avoid carbon monoxide poisoning in your caravan or motorhome:

  • Install and maintain a CO detector: This is the single most important thing you can do to protect your family against the possibility of Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Make sure to buy a battery operated detector with a loud enough alarm to wake you up. But that’s not all, replace the battery every year and change the detector once every 5 years or at manufacturers advice.

  • DO NOT use portable gas camping stoves indoors. Small appliances like these also contribute to the buildup of Carbon Monoxide and when indoors, the harmful gasses can’t escape.

  • Get your gas appliances checked by an expert. Make sure that they are working correctly and all the stuff that is supposed to be inside is staying inside and not spilling out to kill you when you’re asleep.

  • Be smart. DO NOT use BBQs indoors,

  • DO NOT use generators inside your caravan or motorhome or awning

One last thing, if you ever suspect that you or a family member has been exposed to Carbon Monoxide, immediately evacuate the caravan/motorhome!
