Guys, do as you wish. My dad smoked in my house and John Wayne promoted smoking, that does not make smoking safe just as it has been determined that Halon is not safe for humans or the environment.

Yes, you are correct. But, all fire extinguishing agents from the cheap stuff at Walmart through the big bottles of CO2 are hazardous to humans. The only safe one is water and it's only good for paper or wood. Try putting out a kitchen grease fire with that.

Halon is the "least unsafe" of all the available agents. Halotron runs a close second but it's not quite as effective.

If you're concerned about the safety of halon I suggest you refrain from traveling on airplanes. If you do, you will be surrounded by halon bottles.

Yesterday had my Levelup system installed at Lippert in Goshen. Toured the RV hall of fame while we were in the area as well. Wanted to tour the factory for Heritage Glen but due to being Good Friday there was not production going on so we decided not to take the tour.

Halon is safe for humans, however it's not safe for the environment. Here is a fact sheet which explains all about the product.

What is Halon? How does Halon Work? Is Halon legal? Is Halon Safe?

mcnabbwr found the link I was looking for and it's really good info. Some of it is direct quotes derived from approved FAA training manuals. I realize FR will try to make a profit anywhere they can, but fire protection is not an area they should skimp on. Halon bottles can be obtained for $200-$300. At least on the motorhomes the extra cost would be insignificant.

Most fires in RVs are caused by cooking incidents or electrical problems. I think that if one is traveling down the road and had an electrical problem it would be a lot safer if they could just grabbed the halon bottle and aimed it generally toward the back of the MH. It would give an additional few seconds to get off the road and evacuate.

Personally, I'll stick to halon only for fire protection. Have three bottles in the TT, one in the truck, one in the car and seven in my house.
