    When we bought Kcy chausson flash 18 months ago a fire extinguisher was in the cupboard floating round with all the other bits and bobs. So at this minute Steve is walking round thinking where to put it. Any ideas.

    Ours is just inside th Hab door at floor height. I guess the thought there is that you will be able to see it when you're crawling around on the floor trying to keep below the smoke.....


    Or, you can just open the Hab door from outside and grab it without going in.

    Who knows?

    Fire extinguisher behind the passenger's seat.

    Fire blanket inside a cupboard door by the kitchen; makes less mess than a fire extinguisher if it's a small fire in the kitchen.

    Same as ours, hopefully we'll never have to use it, remember to check your use by date it could save your life. :)

    Ours is still in date with the needle in the green. They should be checked at least yearly.

    When you check them, annually, give them a good shake to loosen the powder, the vibration of the van in motion makes the contents compact. We used to do this on board ship as they also have constant vibration.

    Used to carry a bucket of sand but it ate into the payload so I swapped it for a bucket of fine sawdust.....looks similar but much lighter.
