Barry, nicely done. My coach door is in the rear but the pantry cabinet is right there and already has a tall space for the trash can on the bottom, so you have given me the idea to put one there...maybe two, both the ABC and the CO2. So, only one more to figure out. Since I will rarely have a passenger, I'd like to have one in front of the passenger seat, reachable from the outside through the passenger cab door.
Ron, for some reason there was no extinguisher in my vehicle from PC, but the ones manufacturers supply are usually very small. I have always had multiple extinguishers in every vehicle, with the goal of fast accessibility from inside and outside, at each door, and each corner of the unit if possible...and they are about 17" tall, 7" diameter, so I do have to sacrifice space for them. My 3 CO2 units rate 5 sqft coverage each, and my 2 ABC units rate 10 sqft coverage each. That seems like barely enough to me, and I was thinking of adding a third ABC unit and maybe increasing all the sizes. I guess I'm just paranoid, but with all the fuel, engine, generator, LP hot water/furnace/refrig, and electrical running through the paper walls everywhere...an RV seems very high fire hazard to me.
