The passive fire suppressors installed in the engine compartment and at the back side of the refrigerator give us peace of mind more than having fire extinguishers in hand (though we do have several foam types). We have also had the recalls done, but if the refer still catches fire in the middle of the night we might not wake up in time. So, the automatic fire suppressor would give us extra time. The engine fire suppressor would give us time to get the coach to the side of the road and get us and our animals out and maybe time to fight the fire with our handhelds. They are cheap insurance. Check out Mac the Fire Guy.

It seems like all the fires I've read about (in local news) are always older MHs (1970's vintage) with faulty wiring, often mouse chewed wires, sparking a propane tank and causing the fire.

As I've got a 1975 MH, and an the survivor of a fire (I was actually on fire, burned off my really long hair and the clothes I was wearing) I have yet to use anything fire related in my MH (propane furnace, gas stove, etc). I'm taking all gas powered stuff out of the MH. (The reason I'm living in a motorhome is two-fold - first a flood, than a fire, left me homeless, so understandably I now how some fire phobia issues at work here.) I've got 4 smoke detectors and 3 fire extinquisers inside and planning to get 2 more FEs as well.

My dad was a fireman, so I learned to be scared of fires earler on in life and it stuck with me.
