    Hope you can get good info.

    I wonder if it doesn't make a difference what type of heating system you have, too. Forced air would distribute CO throughout the house, but hot water or steam heat might not. I don't really know.

    I do know people have been killed in their RVs where they've had generators under the campers, not enclosed. The CO would have had to rise to get into the campers. I remember someone on the camping forum sharing an article where the entire family was killed when they were running a genset under one of the bunks. There was also a case locally where the dad and, IIRC, three of the five kids were killed by a genset running under the hitch of the fifth wheel. You would think there would have been plenty of fresh air in that case, but I guess not.

    And here's a weird one. I just saw a true crime show the other day where they think the husband, who did not sleep in the same room as his wife, closed all the ducts in the house except for the bedroom duct where his wife was sleeping, and then introduced CO into the bedroom either by starting a generator or a car in his garage and routing it through the furnace blower. Evil genius, there.

    Major declutter today, with the departure of the pool table. Finally!

    We took two steel folding chairs and two big boxes of stuff to GW yesterday.

    Today we're shoving furniture around. It's hard to tell if we're making any progress or not because now we have a new crop of stuff that needs to be sorted. Maybe tomorrow.

    Husby thinks two of our older TVs are not working. I'm hoping we can dump them both, even if we have to buy one back. They're both huge, heavy analog TVs and a nice light flat screen would be a great upgrade.

    Gave away some knitting and quilting magazines to a friend. Also some sewing magazines, and enactment costuming notes, medieval feast notes, etc., to another friend. In short, we ended up giving them an entire box of stuff. Also gave some yarn I wasn't using. Also gave away some scrapbooking stuff. I had a lot of duplicates.

    I sorted out a big box of handyperson magazines so those are ready to recycle. I'm not keeping any.

    We decided to donate a set of silverware from Husby's side of the family.

    We found two defective TVs in the stash (don't ask) and will be dumping those, but replacing one of them, hopefully today.

    I cleaned the spare fur out of the Velcro on two dog jackets, so those can be washed and donated. With our new camper, we most likely will never use them again.

    Still adding stuff to the GW box-in-progress and should have it filled soon.

    Got rid of all the above except the TVs since that'll have to wait for a dump run, the GW box, and the dog jackets. I also got rid of a set of like-new Womp 'Em Sticks for cooking over a campfire, which we'll never use again.

    We moved the freezer and dining room set out of the LR so that added space, but also moved the AeroGarden cabinet back into the LR. Still, it's a much better arrangement than before. The excess left in the LR now is only the glider rocker frame and the bathroom vanity. Both are high on the priority list, now that the pool table is finally out of here and the rest of the house is mostly sorted the first time through. I'm hoping to get the vanity installed before the end of February which means we'll have to get busy getting rid of the popcorn ceiling in the bathroom and getting new paint in there. The vanity is a series of small projects, too.
