The fire extinguisher delivered with my SMB from Austin in 2014 is included in the recall. The Kiddie recall website makes it pretty easy to fill out the date code and model number and request a replacement, which should arrive in 2 weeks or so.

I've actually been leaving the Kiddie at home during longer trips, and instead carry a HalGuard Halotron "clean" extinguisher that's the same size. My understanding is the standard ABC powder extinguishers are terrible to use in engines or vehicles.

Everything gets coated in a corrosive residue that can fry electrical systems, even if they survived the fire. The powder gets in every nook and crevice, which sounds like a nightmare in a van. I would hate for a small cooking fire to ruin the entire SMB build.

The Kidde extinguisher that was in my Sportsmobile picked up one year ago is also under the recall.

And surprisingly it's showing as empty.

Don't know if I'll pony up for a halon one. Pricey.
