Wondering about where to put propane sensors...

So I've decided to throw caution to the winds and stick with a propane stove. Bought a new control system with two propane leak sensors. Sensors aren't the greatest looking things in the world, so would like to put them in an unobstrusive place.

The propane locker on the boat is aft center, and properly vented overboard. One of the sensors is going to go in the cockpit locker underneath, and near the propane locker, and I am thinking that the best place for the second one is near the stove in the galley area. I want to put it under and almost behind the stove, in the molded-in recess, but I am not sure if that will be effective if gas starts spewing out of the oven, as it will leak forward - not aft towards the sensor.

Does anyone have any knowledge/experience with this. I'm a propane newbie and the stuff makes me a bit nervous....
