Hello
This has been posted before, but I just wanted to remind everyone about the recall on Kidde Fire Extinguishers. Mine from my 2007 Westlake was on the recall list and it was really easy to apply for a free new one. Below is the link and instructions for applying.

Great reminder!

It was easy for me to get a replacement. However, the new one doesn't fit in the built in spot in my 2014 Rockwood...which is annoying. Had to find a new spot for it.

Yes pretty much all of them were recalled. I bring my own, more in case i need to help someone else. You should still check and replace them every so often, that way you know they work. Ounce of prevention and all that.

Agree, our son is a volunteer fireman/EMT. We have 3 extinguishers in the house that he will bring to the fire house once a year for inspection/re-certify . They have a vendor come in to inspect/service their extinguishers in the fire house and on the rigs a few times a year.

The extinguisher in the pup is not serviceable. Only thing to do is inspect it for wear and tear and leaking.

The replacement I got is the same capacity but is shorter and fatter and it does have a gauge. I decided to cut some of my original housing plastic and install their mount with fender washers on the rear. Not sure if Kidde will ever make the old style again or not but I'm good for now. What we need is some RV makers to redesign the insert for these.

@ megcabra - great pictures, my replacement arrived 2 days ago, it almost fits the space but not quite. Great modification I think I might do that!

Old thread, but still a valid issue, especially for anyone with a "new to us" camper. I had the same findings, and made the replacement this spring in my pup. It's fast, easy, and FREE!

Yes, I saw Kindle Fire Extinguishers at my uncle's pickup truck. He always goes camping with him somewhere and to other places. The fire extinguisher is permanently attached to his body. This is probably convenient. He can reach it with his hand because one window looks out at the back of his car-on the body of the car. I can also add that fire extinguishers are needed not only at camping, on the road or in public places, but it would also be nice to buy them at home. When I passed the firefighter interview questions, there were many questions about where fire safety is needed, where a fire extinguisher is required, and so on.
