Given complaints about equipment failure in all trailers, I'm not all that confident in the low O2 monitor. I might have to lay awake all night to make sure it's still working.
As I lay me down to sleep...

It often appears that now days people rather rely on a detector than common sense cause as we all know detectors and monitors never FAIL
I may be old fashioned but I won’t trust my life to an $8 O2 detector made in CHINA

Smile Be safe, we do care

All the Escape owners I've met have been wonderful people who cared that others enjoyed their rigs.
Many of us are afraid of excess CO and insufficient O2. Are our fears irrational? I don't know. I was in a situation several years ago where a CO detector saved my life. I've had refer failure, stove failure, furnace failure, and Max-Fan failure, all in the 6 months I've owned my Escape 5.0-TA. Are my fears rational when I've seen so many ventilation and gas appliance malfunctions in such a short time?
Sounds like you plan to be responsible and not sleep while running the Wave when you have it in your new Escape. Please test your CO/propane detector from time to time. Be safe. Stay alive. Hope to see you on the road in your new rig.

I would never call the fear of CO irrational Katrina. Several campers have died from carbon monoxide asphyxiation. You seem to hear about one every so often.

Precautions should always be taken when operating any device that produces CO, but especially in a confined space where you sleep.

Any person wanting to put a propane quick disconnect valve inside and enclosed area would in my judgement making a fatal mistake. They tend to leak when they get old and do not seal properly, that's why they are outside where gases can be expelled and not contained to a enclosed area.
