Well,.........We have two CO detectors on board and neither warned us of an issue. Returning to the boat after a few days I noticed a strong odor as soon as I opened the door. Checked the ER where it was noticeably stronger. Found one 6 year old 8D just beginning a thermal runaway and disconnected it with disposal following. Each detector is a different brand. Neither gave any warning while aboard a few days earlier, or when the action was really ripping. Batteries were up to snuff in both, so very curious after reading this thread. Junk em' or keep em'?

Take both of them and hold near the exhaust of your gas powered car/truck while the engine is running. They should sound in short order if working.

I got a call that an alarm was beeping, went to the slip and found batteries gassing the old charger was on the blink and causing a good bit of bubbling from the 8ds
