Kidde fire extinguisher recall

How many of you have received a notice of recall on your Kidde fire extinguisher in your 5th wheels. Received mine yesterday. Have to check and see if mine is a Kidde or not. Free replacement if it fits requirements.

Got the notice, and I’m pretty sure ours is a Kidde. Have to go to the storage lot and check, though. 2006 2955RL.

We also received the notice but have already replaced the Kidde with a First Alert. I think one of the dogs chewed the nozzle off the Kidde when she was a pup.

Camping World did in fact take care of our fire extinguishers. Thumbs up on Camping World Little Rock, AR.

We had already added two larger First Alerts to each end of our 3791. They had already replaced the one by the door with a First Alert but sent us the letter anyway. I had heard about the recall as we were 5r shopping.

I don't know if Kidde discontinued the recalled model or they ran out ran but Kidde replaced both of mine with upgraded models. The recalled one's had the plastic head/handles and weren't rechargeable. The replacements they sent me have the all metal head/handle and are rechargeable. I suggest dealing with Kidde if you want the upgraded model that is rechargeable. But then again I never had a fire extinguisher recharged. I don't know where to go or how much it would cost. But I would guess the rechargeable ones are high quality construction so they can be reused.
