Alarm in the Morning

South of Atlanta

The RV LP gas alarm goes off with a screech at 3:30 AM. That can be caused by a failing alarm, a propane leak, human flatulence, battery fumes or any number of other causes.

Usually you can smell propane due to a chemical odorant (usually ethylmercaptan) which is added as a safety measure. I can't smell anything.

I turn off the propane at the tank, but the alarm keeps going off.

Finally, at 5:30 AM I pull out the alarm and cut the wires.

In case you are wondering about the fish pictures, I thought that pictures of the propane alarm would be too boring.

So these are from a 2006 dive on a wall in La Parguerra, Puerto Rico.

Now just waiting for the sun and thinking about the next move.
