No one is going to take the blame in this. Just let the courts figure it out

I travel a lot for many years as a business consultant. And I do not have any knowledge as a firefighter. Many times in the past, in different hotel chains I stayed, I found gasoline powered super water heaters or diesel heaters (with huge motors) with huge exhaust pipes facing the air conditioned unit of my room. The exhaust pipe do not even have to be next to the window of the room, just yards away is sufficient for the air conditioned unit to fill your hotel room with the contaminated air from the exhaust system of the heater motor. In more than one occasion I demanded to be moved to another room, claiming possible death by Carbon Monoxide. However, these units are not always running, only when the hotel is probably over capacity. There is no rules in hotels against this negligence. You are on your own! They look at you like you have 3 heads if you complaint about this to the GM of the hotel. And simply, the solution is a Carbon Monoxide Detector that cost $39.99 at Walmart! Sad to say, that the southerners would like to run this whole country! Probably the same way! Just imagine that!
