I fully understand this, but it's funny never-the-less.

My TT doesn't have the hazmat placards, either, but that's apparently OK for transporting!

Does seem strange. Your TT or MH could have 2 or 3 extinguishers in them (not to mention your black tank) without a placard and that is okay with USDOT.
Maybe we should be careful, they might get some ideas.

Maybe, maybe not. Each person will have to check. In due time, FR will issue its own recall if they used any of these. I haven't checked yet but I think ours is a First Alert.
