Saw Jump bag ??? Can't find again

Yesterday or the day before (I'm old and can't remember), I saw a post about a bag that was put together and kept by the door, full of copys of insurance, drivers license and important things that could not be replaced and would be required in the event of an accident or fire.
Seemed like an outstanding idea, but I got sidetracked and did not copy the info.
Can anyone help?

First, are you positive that you saw it in this forum? I have that trouble occasionally. I check several forums and can't remember which one I need to return to.
If you are sure that this is the forum, do you remember any key words from the post? If so, you can use the "search" box at the top of the page and make sure it is set to "iRV2.com" and not "google".

Good luck, been there; done that,
Don

Jump bag

We recomend you and everyone practice getting out the emergency window. We have a basement model in our 2008 MH and its a long drop to the ground. We have no bumper or other grips to help with on the outside. Our window is high off the floor and we have a short step stool there at the base of the window.

We are not paranoid, we lived in a 3 story colional in the NE and had emergency winfow ladders. I am a fire sprinkler designer and have owned my business for 46 years. Have seen lots of fire damages and testing of fire equipment at FM. Smoke kills more then flames, smoke can get to over 800 degrees.

If you are very concerend about fire a ladder set up each night outside the window might help. We have 3 smoke/heat detectors with emergency light and 3 1.5 gal Coldfire extinguishers.

For imortant papers I have a fire safe in a secure place (don't ask where) . I have been in the fire service over 20 years and looked at a number of burned motorhomes before I decided where I thought the least amount of fire was likely to be then I had the safe installed near there.. I also have copies of everything at home and on line. I have most things on my laptop and when traveling it is usually near the door.

I read it is called a boogie bag, so you can grab it a boogie out the door quickly in case of fire. It should contain copies of your indespensible papers, like passports,insurance papers, at least one credit card etc. Once set of clothes for each, including shoes. That is all I can remember just now. I think I read this on the escapees.com forums.

The article was written in Highways, Good Sam mag.

Check Good Sam Highways online and you should find it, however, I believe I also saw a reference in Motorhome magazine too. I keep all my important stuff by at the same spot each evening for a quick exit.

I think its in the Norcold fire thread.. someone mentioned that they keep a briefcase by the door with all their important papers so all they have to do is grab the dog(cat?), the briefcase and run..
