Folks, let's discuss the issue. Attacking each other is against Community Rules.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Bad about the shop, but the great sense of humor is one of the things I really like about iRV2.

Paz.. I must say I liked the Burnt Cherry line .

Some jokes are in poor taste. Even if they are jokes.. That one (Burnt Cherry) is not one of them.. And it is funny.

(And who knows.. Might be true, I'm sure there such a color in some paint company's formulary)

Paz, I'm kinda miffed at you. I finally got my DW to make her decision on the interior of the new Bus we're going to order and now she wants to wait to see what "Burnt Cherry" is going to look like.

I got a good laugh at this entire thread.

First the NotSoCold suggestion. LMAOROTF

Then possibly a Samsung residential NOPE Tiffin will never install any brand of fridge EXCEPT for the one that they sell. How I know that is when I was looking for an installer for my Samsung RF197, Tiffin told me flat out that they won't touch any residential fridge except what they sell and install.

And finally the Burnt cherry wood comment. I was then over the top! Cherry wood was my fathers most favorite type of wood and he is buried in a cherry wood casket.

That one has to take first prize!

Now to get serious about what happen...when first reading about the fire in their wood shop, my VERY first thought was a saw dust fire. They are common and not just in wood shop factories.

Most places like Bob Tiffin's would have automatic fire suppression systems installed especially in a very fire prone area. I am sure they have since gotten everything under control and most likely only lost less than a couple of days work if that.

To the posters that made my day,

I remember a fire at a factory in Marshall, MI (NOT RV related) there was a fireman standing by with a line near a couple of tanks in the next building (No fire in that building) some idiot reporter ask the fire chief why he had a team stationed there, after all there is no fire there.

The chief replied: And I want to keep it that way.

There were two large tanks near the standby team

Oxygen and acetylene. Now I am fairly sure the O2 tank was safe should fire get that far,, I know the company that made it and the quality of their products.. the Acetylene tank however was only a "Standard" tank that met the code for that kind of thing,, NO where near as well built as the LOX tank next to it.
