Halon is a very neat and clean fire suppressant. Just got up and had a drink of fat free milk out of the Norcold. I could hear the comforting sound of the burner flames on the cheap Chinese ammonia coils. Milk was so cold my teeth still hurt. It's time to go to sleep now.

Since heat goes up I still have thoughts of getting that flex hose. Seems like putting the outlet at the top with flex hose would cover everything. Bottom or top fire. I am about to order and install in my MH.

Some great posts on this matter. Helps a lot. Thanks.

Then there are those that think it can't happen to them until it does. And I bet that you won't EVER here from the horses mouth because they would then have to eat their words.

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". Something that Norcold does NOT have in their code of ethics books. And I would guess that some owners follow right behind them!

Fridge cavities vary in depth. I didn't have a choice but to put mine where I did, but if you can get the head closer, all the better. Remember that there is a "barrier" about a 1/3 of the way up where the fans are, I doubt you want it above that if its the only extinguisher.

BTW- AC6M is a friend of mine..

I love my Norcold so much, I get excited just looking at it! She's hot, and black and beautiful and she's all mine. And I will sleep so great tonight knowing we have a sweet Norcold purring away in the kitchen, on gas as we boondock out in the wilds. Who need Viagra, we have a Norcold!
