While attending a Mac the Fire Guy Seminar in January, my wife demonstrated an escape from our small bedroom window. Too little fore thought is given to this very important procedure.

Fire Prevention Tips?????

During the several years we enjoyed our 5th wheel, the 20# propane (LPG) tank for the BBQ was stored in the truck bed bungeed securely in the proper upright position in one rear corner between the box side and the tailgate.
The first year we travelled in our MH we stored a 12# LPG tank in the proper position on a custom bracket mounted in the same bay as the coach 130# LPG tank. We then switched to using a 12' propane hose/extension with proper fittings attached as needed to the coach LPG tank and to the BBQ, dispensing entirely with a separate portable propane tank.
Safer and more convenient IMO.
We have 3 fire extinguishers in our MH, two inside, the standard one by the entrance door and one aft in the bed/bath area, and one outside in an accessible basement compartment; two "smoke" detectors, one a standard smoke and CO combo and the other a dual ionization and photoelectric combo; the standard propane detector; and a portable chain ladder to expedite exit through the escape window.
Safe travels!
