1. Put your new detector farther from the bed.

2. Get some probiotics.

3. Stop eating so much alfalfa.


Rofl. That's funny!

Dog farts are a famous cause of false alarms, I suppose because the dog is closer to the floor.

Oh brother. Bring back college memories.

And when we spent a vacation at Patti's sisters property in Montana. They were in the process of building a home. She and her hubby were staying in a 20 or so foot TT TH that had the TH portion turned into bunks. Dan, myself, his Daughter and Son in Law made for some hilarious memories.

Thanks for the post. Hadn't really ever thought that the gases were that similar. They both DO create impressive flames[emoticon]

I enjoyed this post because it brought back memories of a big black lab named Sammie that would pass what i nicknamed "the blue haze".

Aside from setting off the gas detector, she would even get up and move when the bomb went off. [emoticon]

My previous TT's smoke detector would go off any time I stepped out of the shower. Darn things are just too sensitive, if you ask me.

So there I am at 2:00am, naked, with a flashlight looking at the detector panel. It reads, "when alarm sounds, exit to fresh air and call 911". I did not do that. Given the sensitivity of the alarm, you really have to discard the instructions and make a judgement.


There is something special about camping in an RV.

Farting in bed with your spouse beside you is outrageously unacceptable human behavior......I do it all the time but my alarms are immune to it.

LOL! Don't know how old you are but it's become the mating call between my husband and I!


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

My Collies don't pass gas very often but when they do it will clear a room. What's worse is it's a silent killer no warning what so ever.
