Anyone thought about refer fire extinguishers?

This isn't something I've thought much about, but is a really good idea. When the budget allows, I plan to get/install one of these:

With the design of the head though, I'll most likely go with this version:

The refrigerator compartment design is exactly like the TT compartment design. I'm not sure how other MFR's are. Their website is HERE and they even state: "We designed this unit especially for the *Norcold refrigerator recall and is our most popular seller. It is also suitable for other small compartments where supplemental fire protection is needed" I know we don't have "No-Cold" units in our rigs, but the danger is still there!

I was just looking at them about a month ago. I would love to order me one but my money is a little thin now spent it all on tires, awning, vent covers so on and so on. I will get one sometime soon. Is it safer to run the refrigerator on electric then on gas? I never us gas to run my refrigerator anyway I just take a cooler with till the frige gets cold. this whole frige fire thing got me a little freaked out. I did do the recall service.

I had an opportunity to actually use a couple of Halon portable extinguishers on a training prop fire many years ago and the results were amazing!!!

The prop consisted of a six foot high block wall approximately ten feet wide. There were three sections of rain gutter mounted on the wall so the fuel would cascade down one piece, fall into the second piece going back across the wall, then into the third piece crossed back again, then onto the concrete pad. They placed a can of diesel fuel on the wall and allowed it to run through the gutters and onto the concrete, made for a nice, hot, running fire.

Two very experienced firefighters (me being one) with two CO2 extinguishers just managed to extinguish it before the extinguishers ran out. Second time with two dry chems, same result. Third time, with two Halon extinguishers the exinguishment was all most instantaneous, we hit the base of the fire on the floor and it put the entire fire out. It was absolutely amazing!!!

The only problem with Halon is the whole environmental thing with ozone depletion. Due to EPA regulations commercial Halon systems are almost non existent anymore.
