Two different fires. The OP one is in Yuma, the 2nd in Florida.

It's a different coach and accident completely.

I was at seminar presented by Mac the Fire Guy - January 2014. Mac McCoy stated there have been 4000 (four thousand) Norcold fires in the last 4 years.

If they have this many documented cases why wouldn't the consumer protection agency have a recall on the just like they do with vehicle issues.

Mac is definitely the man. But he is also the man selling fire extinguishers. 1,000 Norcold fires a year x 4 years = 4,000 fires a year. Doesn't it seem more like 40,000 fires - thread after thread - post after post.

I am about to order more safety from Mac. But I wish the class action suit would run it course. Maybe then we will have some hard and fast (whether true or not) numbers of Norcold and Dometic fires per year.

The recalls are many. The fixes are band aides. But the numbers of actual fires - to me is a mystery. I have a halon extinguisher and an Amish cooling unit replacement - so I take it seriously because fire kills. But - I do not think anyone can quantify this risk. And by that I mean LEGALLY QUANTIFY the risk. The day is coming - I hope - but not here yet.
