    Not that scary as I have seen something worse than this not on my own accord. I was curious in the video saying "Graphics content alert"

    Anyways, the worse was not related to RV, but it's a video related to copart. That graphics content was a GMC sierra covered with dried blood and pieces of brain scattered around it, likely to be a suicide as it previously was seized by police based on stickers.

    Gosh, I wished I did not watch that. Too frightening.

    Interesting Video and overall I enjoyed it but one comment. Please spend some time working out your audio. I spent most of the video turning my volume down when music played cuz it was blasting and then turning it way up to here you when you were walking around

    There was an RV in my neighborhood that caught fire, there was nothing left but a frame and wheels(and tires), I’m not sure how the fire was caused, I though it was people shooting off illegal fireworks(yep, I live in a California where things such as bottlerockets are illegal, yet people shoot ‘em off anyways) at that time because it was almost 4th of July, but now your video is starting to make me think that it was most likely an electrical fire, fridge fire, generator fire, or engine fire. My step grandmother also had a trailer catch fire because of a faulty electrical system(not because someone’s daughter was smoking weed or something) installed by yours truly, Sneaky Steve, who is not a certified electrician, and the outside looked fine, but the inside was mostly incinerated(the only thing that really survived was some cabinets), and the top vent cover blew off(I know that because Sneaky Steve was a witness), and as of now, that trailer has been sold(for a price of $100), and the new owner is converting it to mobile fashion boutique to sell clothing at swap meets

    I was really interested in the topic of this video, but the audio is horrendous. People keep posting videos with terrible sound and apologizing for it, but the fix is easy.

    Can only imagine the fuel , oil , coolant and chemicals that leak into the water table over the years.

    a Passive Fire Suppressant,System that uses FFF Foam,and auto fuel shutoff. should be required by law. $1100 is a small cost compared to the price of these RV's. if they make a run-flat tire for the front ,that could save lives.

    so, it can be concluded that it is possible that the home refrigerator adapted for RV ar safer than trivalent fridges, that comes with RV from factory?

    YOU COULD BAND AID LOTS OF THESE R V'S AND TURN THEM INTO HOMELESS SHELTERS

    people pore hundreds of thousands of $$$$$$$$ into these rigs only to have them end up the junk heap buy a late model used and save yourself a boatload of money
    as for RVs catching fire i would be willing to bet that 90% of them was due to careless owner poor maintenance and laziness

    I live in my Gulf Stream Hi Rise full time. In the lower compartment there is a DC to 110 converter hooked up to 4- 6 volt golf cart batteries. One afternoon I was getting ready to leave and just happened to look back and saw smoke coming out of the compartment.
    I opened it in time to put everything out with a near bye fire extinguisher. One of the cables must have Burt through and caused a short. I really couldn't tell exactly the cause. After cleaning everything up and repairing the damages. Since this compartment is under my bed. I went and bought 2 smoke alarms. I installed one as it was out of the box. The other I took it apart. I removed the alarm beeper added extra wires drilled a small hole in the bedroom floor into the top of the compartment then soldered the wires from the beeper back into the alarm and mounted it on the roof of the storage compartment above the batteries. Just in case it should ever happen again. So far it hasn't but I replace the battery in the alarm when it's necessary. A remote area smoke alarm is really easy to build.
    Hope maybe this will helps someone. Brian

    I've seen video's of that salvage yard before and it makes you think about how fires can destroy so many lives. I found a product that will prevent fires in RVs. Go to Proteng Automatic fire suppression and detection device. I plan to get one for my frig. here very soon. Oh by the way. What part of Colorado are you from? Keep up the great work on your video's and maybe someday we can meet!

    It just seems to me that there has got to be a way that a homeless person could possibly maybe live in these places it's a lot better than weather in the Heat and the cold and the elements that they have to live in on the outside I mean really
