We always seem to get asked the same questions about living somewhat off grid in a motor home, to which the answers seem to spark a dozen more questions! So (to give our voices a rest!) here's the answers to our most frequently asked questions...

Fire-Angel Carbon Monoxide Detector & Alarm, with handy thermometer

They're small, cheap and can quite simply save you and your family's lives - what else is there to think about?! Myself and Ryan have personally had two experiences in our lifetimes of a carbon monoxide issue; firstly we became ill from a blocked chimney in our cottage causing the fire fumes to back up into the house - back then we had a colour-change monoxide indicator (which we noticed in the morning had darkened a ways) but not a sounding alarm. Thankfully the build up wasn't enough to kill us and just made us sick and with a severe headache each, but it taught us a lesson for sure! More recently and in the motor home, a faulty fridge flame set our alarm off which helped us to address the problem before encountering any health problems... thank you Fire-Angel!  

The only thing the colour changing indicators are good for is telling the emergency services how we died... don't take the risk and buy yourself an alarm!

We have the popular Fire-Angel model pictured above which at the push of a button switches the display to a thermometer, so we can check how cosy it is inside, and most importantly features an extremely LOUD alarm! See below for the link to find yours on Amazon:

About us:

My name is Sarah and in 2011 my husband Ryan and I decided to buy and re-fit an old motor home - we named it Waki and now live in it full time in the UK!

We live neither on or off-grid, rather somewhere in between, and are not the first and I dare say not the last to choose this way of life... read more>>
