Hard to say, but I think I'd disconnect and get truck away from the inferno to minimize insurance claim and prevent adding additional fuel to the fire. Depends on size/intensity of blaze, whether family was with me or not, etc.

Make sure everyone is safe, let insurance pick up the pieces and next time buy a different brand!

Because the electric jacks will not be working at this point, there is no way to unhook. Just grab your loved-ones and wallet and BAIL-OUT! This is why we have insurance!

Was the name of that trailer paint-shopped into that photo or is INFERNO actually the real name???

I don't know anything about 5th wheels but the fire looks like it is to the point where getting some distance is the best plan.

Agree...the fire is too far along to disconnect. Save the dog and run.

Since you are asking for opinions, it depends on whether or not the trailer has propane. If it did, I'd get a safe distance away. If not, I might be tempted to get the truck unhooked, even if it meant yanking it out from under the trailer just so that I was not totally stranded.

No need to worry about jacks. Unlatch the hitch and floor it. It'll come off.

Grab everything I can and run. Ram makes new trucks everyday and that's why I have insurance to buy me a new one.

In that situation grab what I could for the truck and run. Depends on what I saw right when I stopped. Again you know it has propane...gotta run at that point.

My vote.


I drive a semi for a living and many times, you can see where a vehicle has burned on the side of the freeway and funny thing many times,you see a ring in the middle of the lane. It is where a tire blew off and burned in the lane, leaves a very visible ring in the asphalt.
