I think we can all be glad no one was injured. While the property loss is unfortunate, that no lives were lost is a blessing.

Personally, I think it was the smoke detector. Everytime one of those things goes off, there's a fire.

You must not do much cooking in your RV, it seems.

Boy doesn't seem everybody gets a thrill on posting when a MH burns up. And then everybody gives their 2 cents on what started it.

I often prepare 3 fire extinguishers that are class a class b, and class c because I don't know what types of fires can happen with my RV. Even I know that almost fire extinguishers can't put out fires but I believe that prevention is better than cure. The link below is the best fire extinguishers. Good luck with your trips.

The good news. Nobody got burned or killed.
Norcold has a Recall on some models that is supposed to prevent this
And there is an after market as well.

That said. Fridge fires are actually rather rare.. Other fires .> Well any given specific cause other than "owner stupidity" is very rare. Stupid owners... alas (This includes things like smoking in bed) all too common .


Home is where I park it.

I installed one of these behind my fridge. Hope I never have to find out if it works but it may buy some time if it only slows it down.
