Trailer Owner’s Manual

4 Safety Devices

4.1 Emergency Exit

Code standards require an emergency exit in every rv, and the window opposite the entry door is designated as such. Please ensure that this window functions smoothly at all times.

4.2 Fire Extinguisher

Also required by code is a fire extinguisher. In your trailer the extinguisher is located in an easily accessible position near the entry door. Check the pressure indicator on occasion, and replace it with another extinguisher if necessary.

4.3 Smoke Detector

The smoke and CO2 detector is located on the wall above the sink. Remove its batteries during storage, and reinstall the batteries and test the detector before each trip.

4.4 LP Detector

The propane (lp — liquid petroleum) gas detector is located near the floor, and is powered directly by the trailer’s main battery or converter.

An alarm will sound if the detector senses propane or similar gas. In the event of an alarm, turn off flame sources, open windows and the door, and vacate the trailer until the alarm stops.

An periodic alarm will also sound if the battery voltage is too low, warning that the detector might soon lose its ability to function. Recharge the battery if at all possible.

Alarms may be silenced by a button on the detector.

The lp detector consumes a small amount of electricity. In the event that the trailer will be stored for a long length of time with its battery as the only source of 12 V dc power, the lp detector’s fuse can be removed to prevent its draining the battery.
