In this video, I discuss my RV winter skirting and possible safety issues in the event of an LP gas leak under the RV. During a recent cold snap, I placed a space heater under the skirt to keep the RV plumbing from freezing. The heater has a bimetal relay-type thermostat, and it got me thinking. What if I had a propane leak under the skirt and the relay contacts sparked?
I’m not sure if enough LP gas concentration could build under my RV skirt to ignite the gas as it’s not air-tight. However, erroring on the side of caution, I decided to install an RV propane detector/alarm inside the winter skirt enclosure just in case. If you have any other thoughts, ideas, or advice for my viewers or me, please feel free to leave a comment on my YouTube channel.
