  • Safety Reminder - LP Gas Detector - Expiration Date.

    I know lots of you have GDRV units that are now approaching 5+ years or even older. Please remember to replace your LP gas detector five years after you purchased your RV. They are good for 60 months as indicated in this photo:

    Jim- I suspect this is me among others. With our 10/13 build and retail sale of 2/14 we fit the bill. The "retail sale" statement is interesting. Guess they wear out being "used" but not beginning until retail sale.

    Where do you recommend to order one or get one from ?

    Thanks, for pointing this out and any recommendations you have.

        I pulled this from the installation manual - unit will tell you when to replace.

        End of Life Signal The Sensor has a 5 Year Service Life All 20-441-Pmodels include an End of Life (EOL) Signal indicating the sensor has reached the end of its service life and you must replace the alarm. The signal is the LED flashing RED RED GREEN GREEN with a beep every 25-30 seconds. The EOL Signal may be reset by pushing TEST / RESET button on the alarm. This will reset the EOL Signal for a period of 72 hours (3 days) for a total of up to 30 days. After 30 days the signal cannot be reset and the alarm must be replaced.

          Yoda Keith,

          Is this an age limit whether the unit is powered or unpowered? I've not looked at this unit is detail and am wondering how the internal clock is powered. My battery switch completely kills all loads from the battery.

            That's a good question for the manufacturer. I wonder if GD has contact information.

              Thanks, all (Jim, Keith, & Jim)......good information. Our 303 battery switch also kills the power to our alarm. I suspect only 5% or so of ours has been active/on. Considering that the RV is in storage for 8 months and then only used (battery power on/ plugged in to 120 V) about about 15% for the other 4 months, maybe the actual life will be much much more if it is based on usage. I will need to do some research unless someone has a definitive answer.

                I guess one way to look at it is that if it still tests fine and the end of life signal hasn't sounded, why fiddle with it.

                  I followed the Amazon link provided by TusconJim. Amazon states "Usually ships within 1 to 2 months." A delay in delivery may be a problem if the device may only be reset for up to one month

                    Agree Jim. It would be nice though if disconnecting power is just playing the system and the time in usage will increase while the sensor is actually past due after 60 months. Maybe these should be replaced just prior to 60 months as general maintenance.

                      That's probably a better (safer) way to look at it.
