Risk of CO2 from 3 way fridge whilst operating on gas mode

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I have never been caravaning or had a motorhome before but I have recently purchased a horse lorry which we stay in at horse shows overnight on a regular basis. In the living area there is a 3 way fridge which I am keen to use on the gas setting. Is this really safe? I am worried about possible CO2 emmisions ... the silent killer ... is it safe to have the fridge operating via gas and to sleep in the same small area? Any advice much appreciated!

Carbon monoxide (CO) is the silent killer and produced as a result of incomplete combustion of fossil fuels.

 

Have you thought about getting a CO detector?

There should not be any problem with a 3-way fridge in a caravan, motorhome or horsebox (habitation area) as long as it is installed correctly.

 

Wouldn't it be best to get a mobile service engineer who is GasSafe registered to give it a check over just to ensure that it is fitted correctly and operating to specification before using the horsebox in earnest for sleeping in at events ?
