What does A, B, or C ratings mean on a Fire Extinguishers?

        Fire extinguishers with a Class A rating are effective against fires involving paper, wood, textiles, and plastics. The primary chemical used to fight these fires is monoammonium phosphate, because of its ability to smother fires in these types of materials.

       Fire extinguishers with a Class B rating are effective against flammable liquid fires. These can be fires where cooking liquids, oil, gasoline, kerosene, or paint have become ignited. Two commonly effectively smothers the fire, while sodium bicarbonate induces a chemical reaction which extinguishes the fire.

       Fire extinguishers with a Class C rating are suitable for fires in "live" electrical equipment. Both monoammonium phosphate and sodium bicarbonate arre commonly used to fight this type of fire because of their nonconductive properties

Know The Lifespan of LP Gas, CO, And Smoke Detectors In Your RV.

The Life span of your detectors is So Important.

Look on the inside or back of the detector and look for a 'BORN DATE'. Then add six years to expiration. Compare to current date.

Consider this, if the date is 3 years away to expiration. The detector is only 50% effective now.

Question. Are you happy to be 50% safe?
These questions are the standards of 'upkeep' of a RV.

An RV Detector is Very different than a home detector. Get the right application. The element inside that detects has different sensors for rv fire materials.

Detectors are the Life Line of a RV. Your safety is important enough to understand new knowledge. Detectors are designed to wear out after six years, with or without a battery. The element that detects smoke, gas, or LP wears out or no longer detects. Designed by the manufacture. So REPLACE often. The WHOLE detector, NOT just the battery.
