@funflair is correct.. dry power does settle in a van due to the vibration and should be inverted and given a gentle shake every so often to loosen the powder.
If you can't feel it moving about.. it's no use.. have it serviced or throw away.
Yes, yes, yes ,yes and yes!
I have a water mist extinguisher, in the hope that it it won't make the mess the fire makes even worse while putting it out.Do you carry a fire extinguisher? Is it suitable? Is it in date? Could you use it & know how to?
Always ensure plenty of cans of beer on board, if it won,t put out the fire, you can always drink them in commiseration!
Diet or full fat?I know it was probably meant as a joke, but you make a good point. I have used a two litre bottle of Coke to put out a fire. If you give it a bit of a shake first it will provide quite an effective jet or spray.
