Thanks Herk now I will never get to sleep tonight. Never thought of a tree falling on me.

With the way these trailers are built, if a tree falls on them, there will be plenty of openings as shown in your pictures. I'll find a hole rather than try to crawl out of a window, that's for sure. Already escaped a tree cutting our house into 3 pcs with us in it and it sheared a 1" gas line.

Off topic, but Fritz even stopped eatin' mud bugs long enough to look and say;

looks to me like he's got an *El Camino* in his driveway!

And Herk, thanks for that picture. DH and I will now duplicate your fire extinguisher and flashlight location, down low, on the fascia of our wardrobe slide, even though there's one mounted near the floor by the exit door, right at the foot of the stairs.

Perfect location.

(we do have a flashlight mounted with 3M loop and hook tape right above the fire extinguisher by the door)

Past tense, that was the house, etc in Carlisle, Arkansas before we left for NC. Camino and homemade camper still being used.

I would also look at replacing the fire extinguisher that came with the RV with a foam filled product. The one Mac showed us kept the fire from reigniting and was not messy or corrosive. The demos are amassing. If you ever get a chance to see his show do it.
