Fire Extinguisher Recall

I have a 2017 FR3 30 DS and have recently heard about the ongoing Kidde fire extinguisher recall. If you read the recall, it appears that all Forest River motorhomes, but the FR3 are listed as affected. Checked ours today and it is bad. If you check the Kidde website for recall information it can be misleading. It ask for your location and most owners will say USA. By this list our extinguisher was not affected, But the fire extinguisher was listed on the Canada list and the extinguisher was made in Canada. So check both list. Our extinguisher model was E10H on the Canadian list. More recall information on the recall forum.

I got a post card in the mail from FR. My heritage glen was in the shop for some simple warranty work before warranty was up. They replaced mine with a new one.

I submitted a recall claim through Kidde and they accepted and will mail a new extinguisher in the next 2 weeks. Never did get anything from FR. That was the problem, as our model was not listed.

Check your home and car extinguishers also. I had to replace 4 of 6 here. All done for free.
