EG-400 Fire Detection System from RV Safety SystemsThe EG-400 Fire Detection System from RV Safety Systems is said to provide motorhome owners a reliable early warning system in the event of an engine or generator fire.
According to product literature, the system continuously monitors the temperatures in the engine and generator compartments and displays one or the other — selected by the user — on the cockpit monitor. Should the temperature of either exceed a preset number, the display automatically switches to the affected compartment and triggers a visual and audible alarm.
The system includes two levels of alarms for each compartment.

Vernal Pools Print Email
