      Mine goes off when I have the camper plugged into shore power for a while. Otherwise it works fine. This was with the original unit as well as a replacement.
      I have equated this to high voltage and or some odor from the power converter/fuse box that is directly across from the propane sensor.
      I have checked with a propane detector and there is not propane around when it is going off like this.
      I have been meaning to put a switch to the sensor, but for now I pull the fuse.

      I hope this helps.
      Cheers,

      Hi Steve and Mike,

      I thought I would get notifications of responses, thus the reason for no reply for so long.

      I am still doing some research around center of gravity. The center of gravity would not change relative to the rear axle as the extra length of the eight foot bed is added in the front of the rear axle. The COG for the Apex8 is in the 32 inch range. Add 20 inches for the eight foot bed and I would still be inside the range given for a RAM 3500.

      But the COG would still be back a little further than most campers designed for an eight foot bed truck. Physics says this would effect the front end to some degree. But, physics doesn’t really tell what the actual effect on driving the truck would be. Thus my questions for someone who has actually done this. The few inputs from the people on the web don’t seem to indicate any problems, but no one actually specifically addressed drive-ability.

      And, that is why I would be curious to hear from the ex-fireman.

      And, I agree, I am not sure I would like the looks either. But, the added, exterior, storage space would be really nice.

      Thanks again for your comments and help.

      Cheers,
      Dave Wheeler

      I recently sent a question to Outfitter via their website. Within a day I got a call back from the new owner.
      That never happened with the old owner, never. If he didn’t answer the phone directly, you would never hear from him.
      So, for me, the new owner is all good so far. Hopefully, they improve the quality as well, my 2010 Apex leaves a little to be desired in quality area.
