New Location for Propane Alarm in 5.0 TA

Based on early build photos of our 5.0 TA it looks like ETI has relocated the propane alarm to the bottom step. Seems like a good distance from the batteries but also a potentially dirty/dusty location right by the door. I would rather deal with the dust on the alarm than the battery off-gassing...well until we upgrade to AGMs.

If that's the gas detector/propane alarm, they have changed types. It looks nothing like mine.

Installation instructions for my Safe-T are that it not be installed in a drafty location.
I don't see anything in the picture provided.

Looks like the Atwood propane detector that ETI now shows in the Owner's Manual. The CO is now integrated with the smoke detector.
