Auto Fire Extinguisher

Does anyone have any experience installing the halon automatic fire extinguishers? There's an item that came out a few years ago that was used in the refrigerator recall was designed to be installed in the small compartment area.

Check out the website for macthefireguy.com He sells and installs this system as well as many other fire suppression systems. He is the "go to guy" for the RV industry fire products.

I mounted mine with zip ties. My compartment is tight and no space for a bracket. Driven 1400 miles after mounting and has stayed in place just fine. My friend mounted his using a bike water bottle bracket.

Auto Fire Extinguisher

I bought several automatic Halon extinguishers from Fire Fight Products (firefightproducts.com). I mounted one behind the Norcold, one in the electrical bay and one in the generator compartment. I also mounted a foam extinguisher in the diesel engine compartment.
