Fire Extinguisher May Be Clogged or Inoperable

In the event of a fire, if the fire extinguisher does not function properly, it can increase the risk of injury.

 

Summary

Coach House, Inc. (Coach House) is recalling certain 2003-2018 Platinum, 2008-2018 Platinum II, and 2010-2018 Arriva recreational vehicles, equipped with Kidde Plastic-Handle or Push Button ‘Pindicator’ Fire Extinguishers. These extinguishers may become clogged, preventing the extinguisher from discharging as expected or requiring excessive force to activate the extinguisher. Additionally, in certain models, the nozzle may detach from the valve assembly with enough force that it could cause injury and also render the product inoperable.
