Update:
Just thought I would put this update in. Insurance has approved the repair plan and parts list. Cummins Pacific of El Cajon is getting right on it. Estimated return to service as the end of the month. Hopefully, there are no delays. National Genera Insurance purchased through Good Sam has been great.There has been no determination as to the cause. Looks like with all my misfortune I was fortunate enough to get a good team to get it fixed and back on the road.

glad to hear it's under control.
now i am thinking maybe i should add a camera to the engine compartment so to monitor it live. another is at the back of fridge.

wireless camera sys is inexpensive nowadays. i installed a few for other purposes and all work great. i will test if 40 ft has any issues...

Jeff, that's a real bummer! Glad you were able to extinguish it and save the rig! Your firefighting experience paid off for sure! Hope you can get back on the road soon!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

It sounds to me, in spite of you injuries, that that you were not driving faster than your guardian angel could fly. Good luck!

I am already researching a durable IP Camera system to install in the engine compartment. Imagine if I had seen it initially start.

You probably ought to put in a heat detector to alert you to look at the camera as well. I don't think that you'd be staring at it as you drive.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that doesn't happen to our MH. You are very lucky, and your training paid-off for you this time. The majority of RV fires are in MH's, and the majority of them (something near 80%) are engine compartment fires. I carry 3 of Mac's AFFF bottle extinguishers and a 20# dry chem. Using dry chem pretty much ruins everything electrical, corrosive- as you know. I hope I have the presence of mind you do to use them as trained. I served on our volunteer fire dept. for 17 years, I hope I remember my training as you did.

I installed one of Mac's extinguishers in my closet on one of the removable panels with the nozzle above the engine. The camera idea is a good one although I keep my back up camera going all the time so that I can see if smoke starts pouring out.

your training takes over and its all instinct and adrenaline. Even at 2am you do what you have to do and worry about it later. Dont ask how I know.
