An RV fire extinguisher is a portable device used in recreational vehicles (RVs) or motorhomes to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency situations, and ensure the safety of the RV occupants. It is an essential safety equipment that comes in various sizes and types, each offering different firefighting capabilities.

Typically, they consist of a handheld cylindrical pressure vessel containing an agent which can be discretely discharged to put out a fire. Most commonly, RV fire extinguishers use ABC dry chemical agents which are effective in putting down Class A (ordinary combustibles), Class B (flammable liquids), and Class C (electrical) fires.

The composition of these fire extinguishers includes monoammonium phosphate, which helps in smothering and melting burning material, thereby effectively suffocating the fire. The shell of the extinguisher is usually crafted from sturdy metal, ensuring it can withstand high pressures internally and externally.

Some RV fire extinguishers feature an easy-to-read gauge that ensures your extinguisher is fire-ready, a corrosion-resistant valve, and a metal pull pin with a safety seal to deter tampering. They come with mounting brackets for easy and secure placement inside the RV.

The operation of an RV fire extinguisher is relatively easy to master: it involves pulling the safety pin at the top of the extinguisher, aiming the nozzle at the base of the flames, and then squeezing the handle to discharge the extinguishing agent.
