    Just saw this article:

    Although it was in a cabin rather than a camper, it was the propane fridge that emitted the deadly CO gas. Poor family. Such a tragedy.

    Don't trust appliances in rental cabins.

    I rented a cabin in a national forest that had a propane refrigerator with a hole in the propane line.

    Glad I saw it before I tried to light the pilot.
