  • Description

    Help ensure the safe and appropriate use of recreational vehicles (RVs) with the new edition of NFPA 1192.

    Due to the unique size, transport capabilities, and use of RVs, special provisions are required to mitigate risks and protect people and property. NFPA 1192, Standard on Recreational Vehicles, delivers complete criteria for fire and life safety in and around RVs.

    The standard offers vital information on everything from fire and carbon monoxide detection to means of egress and types of fire extinguishers. NFPA 1192 also covers the proper installation of plumbing, fuel-burning, electrical, and other safety-related systems. Material is primarily taken from or based on nationally recognized safety criteria to deliver a uniform technical standard promoting the appropriate use of this particular type of vehicle.

    The 2021 edition provides the most current knowledge for protecting RVs from fire, explosions, and other hazards.

    The updated NFPA 1192 provides editorial changes to clarify the intent of existing requirements, including, but not limited to, exterior ladders and the reserve capacity for all RV tires. New provisions address the way guardrails are installed, valve locations, minimum bend radius of water distribution systems, exposed interior finish materials, and the safety requirements for wall beds (Murphy beds).

    Get the resource you need to stay up-to-date with RV fire and life safety issues and inspections.

    NFPA 1192, Standard on Recreational Vehicles, helps ensure fire and life safety in and around RVs. Get current by ordering the 2021 edition.
