It should be written in stone that EVERY RV'er should have more then ONE Fire extinguisher. I occasionally get a wild hair to go L@@KING at the NEW RV's, The A's,,B,s C's, Bumper pulls and 5th's. Just to see what new and improved plastics and fiber board they are implementing in them. 3 out of a dozen or more that I walked through,,,had a fire extinguisher in them. When I questioned the saleman or woman about the lack of them,, They said that its the customers obligation to have one put in if they want one. REALLYYYYYYYYYY ?????????.
Ok,,, Call me paranoid, over cautious,, even crazy. (I don't mind really).. But I have 4 fire extinguishers in my RV and one on the outside. I did have a Halon extinguisher installed in the vent hood above the stove, But due to certain laws and restrictions etc.etc.etc. I have removed it. Halon is the KING of extinguishers,, Its designed to remove oxygen from the air.. Was a good idea when first introduced, But does have safety and health issues surrounding its use. I don't recommend using it in an enclosed place, especially the confines of a smaller RV. I was only using a 4 oz unit which can remove oxygen from the surrounding area up to 30 square feet in a matter of seconds.
I now only use Class D extinguishers, paper,wood,electrical etc. I have them inspected every year so I know they will be ready if I ever have to use them. There are fairly cheap, considering what they do,,and its always better then to have them and not need them, then to need one and not have one, or two or three.. So before you head off to visit a new place and just take a breather or even choose full time.. Check your fire extinguishers, and if you think you need one more, then don't hesitate,, get the extra one.
