2011 Silverback, does it have a fire extinguisher?

I've been knocking my brain around trying to remember if I saw one or not (if not I want to get one before next spring). If we have one, where would it be? The unit is already winterized and covered, so I can't go look. Also, what kind of dvd, sound unit does it have? Our dvd player isn't working and I want to replace it. Any other kind that will fit in that space?

It would have required from factory.
Should have been mounted on bracket.
Did you buy it used? If so, a previous owner could have used it and threw it away.
Just buy another one, they're not that expensive.

Both campers I have had came with a fire extinguisher. I believe it's a law that they have one from the factory. Both have been right inside the entry door. I have added 2 extras to my current camper since the factory one is so small. Can't help with the dvd player.

The fire extinguisher should be attached to the wall down low by the door. Why not just replaced the DVD with another Jensen?

If you Really want a Fire Ext. buy a FOAM Type! If you have ever used the Dry Chemical type that comes standard in a RV you will know what I am taliking about! Also for ALL the people that have Dry Chem.Ext. when was the Last time you removed it and turned it Upside down and Shook or Hit it with a soft hammer to Loosen the Packed Powder caused by going down the Road for years?? Please look up (Mac The Fire Guy) on the Net, or attend one of his Safety Seminars! Buy FOAM and never look back! Youroo!!

I see they eliminated the big tv enclosure in the 2013 model, I like that better.

If you have to ask, it's mounted in the wrong place. If you only have one you need another. IMHO

X2 - our 2012 SB had a fresh one just aft and low of the entry door. I brought an additional one and mounted it in the aft storage bay on the right side.

Foam fire extinguishers are not recommended for fires involving flammable gases such as propane or fires involving electrical equipment. The most versatile fire extinguisher are the ABC class fire extinguishers (dry powder). They need inspecting every month or so and given a light shake periodically to keep the powder content loose. An ABC class fire extinguisher should last between 6 - 12 years dependent upon the manufacturer. They are also good to about -35oC.

A dry powder ext. is better for the inexperienced. Better to have the cloud of flame retardant and have to clean the entire rig later....yes. you will find powder 5 years down the road lol lol...
