I carry a total of 4. The OEM one mounted by the front passenger seat at the door. I put one like that in the kitchen and another beside my bed. I have a larger one stowed in one of the passenger side bays.

I carry a total of 5 extinguishers. Three spaced out inside; one by front door by co-pilot seat, one in kitchen and one in bedroom. There is also one on each side of coach in basement compartments. I also carry a rope ladder under the bed in case we need to get out the bedroom emergency window (long way to ground).

I've attended Mac the fire guy's seminar twice and learned a great deal both times. I purchased this from him and have them spread out in the MH as well as the original ones in the basements and the toad . I also started this thread on fire escape that I learned from Mac's seminar.Fire Escape Hint

Thought I had posted in this thread.

Re: Mac The Fire Guy.. I will also hand him my vote as a person who clearly knows what he's talking about.. I highly recommend him as well.

I have two All Fire Pressurised Liquid jobs I got from MAC
The small powder toy job Damon installed by the door

And a 25 pounder I bought myself

And a pressurized water bottle (Which is stored in the propane bay outside)

There is another item in the propane bay I hope never comes in handy for firefighting (200 cubic feed of non-reactive cyrogenic (If released) gas under very high pressure. If that bottle ever bursts, the stuff comes out just a few degrees above absoulte zero.. I suspect, if it bursts from fire, a gas that is inert, and that cold, will NOT be a bad thing)

Thanks Clifftall
The fire escape hint is a great idea.
All I need to do is get out so I can unhook the toad and call Allstate and Norcold. I have no intention of hanging around the burning Motorhome. The Motorhome is expendable, I'm not. Nor am I interested in finding out how much and how long it will take to get the whole mess repaired. Way too much drama at this point in my life.

One of the things that MAC points out is when you are setting up at your site one of the first things you should be doing is hooking up your washwater hose to your tee. putting your spray nozzle on and making sure it works. Coil it beside your coach and leave it handy incase of a fire. This hose is not for your fire but if that knothead next to you gets to bar-B-quing under his awning and starts his rig on fire you have your hose ready and waiting to spray water on your rig while you prepare to air-up, unhook and get out of there.

WE have camped in truck campers, class C, and presently a 5th wheel. One of the first things I do is to install a 2nd fire extinguisher in the bedroom within arms reach. It never made much sense to me that the only fire extinguisher should be by the exit door. If I can reach that, I'm all ready out.

If you cook inside and particularly if you do fry-ups then you should get a fire blanket and mount it in your kitchen area opposite the cook top.

Use of an extinguisher on a fat fire is almost certain to make it a roaring inferno.

Proper use of a fire blanket will extiguish a fat if by smothering it and starving it of oxygen.

How many have thought thru keeping your keys (toad, front door, bay doors etc.) wallet, and cell phone in the bedroom with you at night? Can you imagine the frustration of standing outside your rig with a fire going inside and no way to call for help? Easy if there are others around, but oftentimes we don't have neighbors when we park. How about waking to smoke, bailing out and then not being able to move the toad from beside the MH while it burns? Or not having a credit card to check into a motel?

In a tray or on the nightstand is probably good, even better is a small bag that can be tossed out with everything inside.

Just a thought, probably won't work for everyone.

Ken

PS, I carry a fully trained, experienced Fireman with me wherever I go.
