Yep, I second that opinion. I have two Trident gas detectors, one under the oven
and one below the Force Ten propane heater.
I test them regularly by putting a butane lighter with no flame next to the sensor and set off the alarm.
Lysol spray also sets of the alarms, even when I don't spray the Lysol anywhere near the sensors. That's a pain, but at least I know the system is working.
The propane alarm system is wired so that the circuit can not be turned off.
The EU rules about bilge pumps state that the circuit must be switchable and must be turned off when one is not on board. Hahaha...my engine
has no oil leaks
, I would never leave my boat in a slip with the bilge pump
turned off, so I hid the switch, so only I can turn it off.
