I carry a set of 3 but light on the fusees. I think 3 triangles is the minimum one should carry on the rig. The flares would be optional. I'm worried that if I would have trouble and there would be no place to get off on a good shoulder. And I have been on some roads like that and wondered. I'm not going to put it in a ditch with a 30 degree slope.

In PA you are required to carry flares and a fire extinguisher when towing.

I carry 3 triangles. I've been stuck on the side of the road twice and never remembered to put them out.

Got the triangles,, never had to them when we had our big break down outside of Gillette Wyoming a few years ago. Have not needed them since (thank goodness) but I have them. Carry them inside behind the co pilot seat so they can be found in a hurry.
Also have reflective vests so they can see me real good when they are going to hit me on the side of the road.

Safe and happy travels everyone

Where do you travel that traveling without a set of 3 warning triangles and a half dozen flares is illegal?

My old MH came with a big box of road flairs. No triangles.

They are 15 minute flares but I can light 4, to get an hour out of them

I'm going to see what I actually need.

Three triangles in a carrying case. The ones I have are heavy. Makes sense otherwise they wouldn't stay put. When I had a Class B it cut heavily into the minal onboard storage but they still went in. Used to carry flares in all vehicles. After being carried around forever I always questioned if they really would work. Thankfully never had the opportunity to find out.

BEST comment is the safety vest for YOU if you need to be out near traffic!!! That's readily available in the drivers area. Triangles accessible in curb-side compartment. ST
