In airplanes the pilot sees a blinking light and hears an alarm in the cock pit when there is a fire in a compartment or engine.
WHY can't RV's have the same set up for the engine and refrigerator???

Halon only works in a confined area, like a engin compartment of a boat. I bet it was a tire fire since, like somebody else said, the ref wasn't in the bedroom. I've seen plenty of tire fires on buses, inner goes flat and wallah FIRE. Hate to see that happen.

You have a zero percent chance of putting out a fire without a fire suppression system. Who said anything about dying?
