It looks likethis would cover most RV extinguishers all the way back to 1972 Recall

They replaced mine way back when the recall was first posted. The new one came very quickly and stuffed the old one in the shipping box and either FedEx or UPS picked it up at the patio. Been awhile and sort of forgot about the recall until I saw your post.

I hadn't seen it before but my wife did something that broke that strap that holds the extinguisher to the wall so maybe the replacement will come with a new mount...heh.

I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. My RV fire extinguisher was made by First Alert.

A couple of years ago when the recall first came out they replaced two of mine and both came with mount and straps.

Might want to check the chart on the link or call Kiddie. According to the report they are also recalling some of the ones that were replaced previously.

Hmmm ... am I reading the announcement in your link right ... in that the latest recall involves only plastic handled extinguishers?

(I had some replaced in the earlier recall and all of the replacements had metal handles and were replacing those with plastic handles.)

They replaced two for me. Were supposed to do one more. After several follow ups I gave up and just bought a new one.

Hope the brand you purchased had *metal* parts - handle, nozzle, etc.

Back When - commercial occupancies & apt bldgs of 4 units or more were req'd to have extinguishers (or multiple extinguishers) of 2A 10BC rating. (still are - requirements may vary by local codes).

We couldn't "suggest" which brand to purchase, however we would comment on which brand purchasers were unhappy with when the extinguisher service folks came around - due to plastic part/s failures, breakage, etc. (Buyer beware!)

Kiddie extinguishers received low marks!
(And that goes back to 1972 also, LOL)
