Secondary Means of Escape

Your recreation vehicle has been equipped with a window(s) that serves as a secondary means of escape. The window(s) will allow a quick exit from the vehicle during an emergency if access to the main entrance door is not available. It is easily identified by the red latches and labels. Practice opening the window before an emergency occurs, and make sure all occupants know how to operate it.

Exercise care when opening the exit window. If opened too far, it may come off the hinge. This may result in damage to the unit or window.

All windows must be closed and locked while the RV is in transit.

Your recreation vehicle may be equipped with one of the following exit window styles:

Flip latch style (2 per window)
Push up on the front lip of the latch and the latch unfolds. Push up on the front lip of the latch again to unhook the latch from the window.
When both latches are released, push out on the window which is hinged at the top. Exit the vehicle.

Fire Safety

If a fire does start, follow these basic safety rules:

  1. Evacuate the vehicle immediately and call 911.
  2. After everyone is accounted for, check the fire to see if you can attempt to put it out.
  3. If it is large, or the fire is fuel-fed, get clear of the vehicle and have the Fire Department handle the emergency.
  4. Do not attempt to use water to put out the fire. Water can spread some types of fire, and electrocution is possible with an electrical fire.

Refer to the following sections for additional fire safety information

  • Electrical Systems, In case of an electrical fire.
  • Appliances, In case of a grease fire.

Fire Extinguisher

Fire extinguishers are classified and rated by fire type, A, B, and C. These classifications identify the kinds of fires or burning materials they are designed to fight.

Class A – Solid materials such as wood, paper, cloth, rubber and some plastics.
Class B – Liquids such as grease, cooking oils, gasoline, kerosene or other flammable liquids.
Class C – Electrical such as electrical wires or other live electrical equipment.

A dry chemical fire extinguisher has been installed by the entrance door. It is suitable for extinguishing small fires of the Class B or C type only.
We suggest you become thoroughly familiar with the operating instructions displayed on the side of the fire extinguisher.

NOTE: For information on how to use your fire extinguisher, refer to the fire extinguisher user’s manual included in your warranty packet.

Inspection and maintenance

Read and follow all instructions on the label and user’s manual provided by the fire extinguisher manufacturer.

NOTE: Inspect the extinguisher at least once a week (more frequently if it is exposed to weather or possible tampering). This should also be done before beginning a vacation or during an extended trip.

Do not check the pressure, test or practice using the fire extinguisher by squeezing the trigger, even briefly. The fire extinguisher is not rechargeable or refillable. Once used, it will gradually lose pressure and will not be fully charged for use in an emergency.

Do not turn the electrical power back on or plug in any appliances after the use of a fire extinguisher. Please refer to the fire extinguisher’s user manual for further instructions on maintenance and cleanup.

Smoke Alarm

Your recreation vehicle is equipped with a smoke alarm that is listed for use in recreation vehicles. The smoke alarm will only work if it is operational and maintained. Refer to the manufacturer’s user guide for detailed safety and operating information. Smoke Alarms have a limited life and will wear out over time. Immediately replace the detector if it is not working properly, if it displays any type of problem, or within five years of use. Though the alarm horn in this detector meets or exceeds current UL standards, it may not be heard for reasons that include (but are not limited to): a closed or partially closed door, and other noise from electronics, appliances, or traffic.


  • This smoke alarm will not alert hearing-impaired residents. Special alarms with flashing strobe lights are recommended for the hearing impaired
  • Smoke Alarms cannot work without power. Battery-operated units can-not work if the batteries are missing, disconnected or dead, if the wrong type of batteries is used, or if the batteries are not installed correctly.
  • Only use the replacement battery recommended by the smoke detector manufacturer. The smoke detector alarm may not operate properly with other batteries. Never use a rechargeable battery as it may not provide a constant charge. Never disconnect the battery to silence the alarm.
  • Smoke Alarms cannot detect fires if the smoke does not reach the Alarms. Anything preventing smoke from reaching the alarm may delay or prevent an alarm.
  • Test the smoke alarm operation after the vehicle has been in storage, before each trip, and at least once per week during use. Do not disconnect the battery or the alarm.
  • Smoke Alarms are not foolproof and cannot prevent or extinguish fires.
