The only minor damage to my coach was charring on the air dam above the fire, not below.

If you can mount an extingusher above the burner it would work.

My gas and ice maker plumbing come through the middle of the floor in my fridgr compartment making it difficult to mount my SS-30 in a good location, so I made a bracket and mounted it 6 inches off of the floor. I can still clean and service the burner without removing the extingusher.

Del you can do as you like but I would turn the head around so its on the right side of bracket.
You have a good idea of having it up higher on that bracket though it will be near the electric elements and over the burner.
The fire if it was to accrued would have to melt the link for extinguisher.

The picture of this fire shows link never melted during the fire.
