David has posted today a very interesting artice on the New column bottom right headed
·FIREFIGHTERS UNABLE TO SAVE COUPLE'S MOTOR HOME FROM FLAMES

I ask how many appliances have you got and what kind. ?

I suspect some of us may be feeling rather smug, until we find out that we have the wrong one or not enough appliances.

have extinguisher near cab / sliding door, blanket near hob / rear door, extinguisher checked every whatever it is recommended.
also extinguisher in car - likewise
I tend to operate on the basis that if I'm prepared won't need it, but if I'm not . . . . . . 8O
plus first aid kit in both - but then you need that over there! plus warning triangle bulbs tyre blower upper corkscrew - all the really crucial things :wink: 8)

The standard fitment fire extinguisher that A-S fit is by the caravan door.
I have a further fire extinguisher and fire blanket by the cab passenger door. I know the the location for the blanket is not ideal but it makes it easier to access.

I agree that it is essential to have adequate fire fighting equipment in the motorhome and sited so that you can access it in time to prevent a major disaster.

But what if you are not in the vehicle at the time?

We were on a big weekend motorhome rally at the Newark showground about 4 years ago when during the evening entertainment somebody had called the fire brigade to a 'van on fire. The couple were in the hall and got back to find their 'van gutted although their dogs had been saved.

In case you are wondering, from memory I believe it was a continental 'van with an electrical fault.
