How Big are Your Extinguishers?

This may be posted in the wrong place, but how many and how big are your extinguishers? I just bought two First Alert Tundra extinguishers which claim to spray 4 times longer than a traditional large extinguisher. It doesn't say ABC, but it does say it works on grease, fabric/trash, and electric fires. Further, not to be marketed or sold in California. Cleanup by wiping area with a damp cloth.

I have moved your post here to its own thread to avoid hijacking the thread it was posted in.

Best of luck.

I have two 2 Liter AFFF foam manual extinguishes inside the coach, one in front and the second in the bed room. In addition I had a 2 liter auto suppression system installed in the generator compartment and a 3 Liter unit in the engine compartment. Both of these have the newer high shock remote heads.
I got these from Fire Fight Products supplemental fire systems out of Orlando, FL

I have 4 extinguishers here, the original little thing Damon bolted to the wall just inside the door, about a pint of liquid Foam just above it, a 2nd pint of foam next to the bed and 20 pounds of powder behind the driver's seat.. So far, have not used them.

We have one 2 liter AFFF foam extinguisher behind the copilot seat, and three additional 16 oz AFFF foam (kitchen, bedroom and primary basement hatch). Planning to add an automatic AFFF in the engine compartment in May.

We have a new 2.5# DC at the door, another one in the Toad and a 5# DC in the bedroom. The first one mentioned was a replacement after the original one was used in an electrical fire that scared the bejeebers out of me. Anyone else actually ever had to use theirs?

Excellent post. I've been looking for a fire control system for all vulnerable points in the coach and this company looks to have everything I need.

This really is a system every RV'r should put on the top of their coach goodies list.

Thanks for posting the link!!
