Why dont you just buy a new extinguisher with a new mounting bracket. They normally come with a vehicle type mount. And . . . dont buy a cheapy! Go to a fire extinguisher shop and buy a good one. They cost no more and will last much longer. Ever think when grabbing a FE to put out the RV on fire, that this was the cheapest one I could find?

Just a heads up, you are not going to put out a RV fire with a RV mounted extinguisher. Kitchen fire ok.

I now carry five fire extinguishers.

One of the extra's is mounted right next to the original at the entry way. Others are carried in outside compartments on both sides of the coach.

As BCooke said...the original is almost useless. Discovered that when two tires blew out on a trailer had and almost caught fire.

For those who don't carry guns, me being one, a fire extinguisher can be used to dissuade any intruder.

It has been a couple years but a car fire that if fully involved (completely on fire) had gone from 250 to 500 gallons due to the plastics and exotic metals (metals that burn).
The fire extinguishers are best to help you get out with your critical.

Sure you can. Just get to it when it's small. Lot's of RV fires are extinguished with RV size extinguishers. I'll bet that's one of the reasons they are required to have one. If they weren't useful for anything, then they wouldn't be required. I haven't personally put out an RV fire with mine since February. Good thing their smoke detector got the neighbors attention so we did catch it while it was small.

I'm glad you got it put out. I have been on 2 RV fires when I was in the fire service and both were a total loss. One of the fires I was behind the vehicle when it started (Route I81) and had a 10 lb dry chem.
As for the fire extinguisher requirements who knows. I am the facilities manager for 250k sq ft., we are required to have over 100 fire extinguishers for coverage. Now you ready. The responding fire company will not use the extinguishers due to the fact that they can not count on them (insurance liability), the employees can not use them due to insurance liability and the possibility of being injured.... so no one will use them!
