My fire extinguisher does not have a guage. Is there a easy way to explain how to check to see if it is good? This is so I don't get busted by boat cop. :wink: Is there a rule of thumb for changing them? Every year, every other year, etc. Thanks

The fire extinguisher in my motor home also has no gage. It does have a green pin that will not be showing if it is used.
However DDD (a state agency) requires yearly inspection of each one. So when I get the ones around the house done, I will sometimes take the one for my boat. ...Pete

If the fire ext is used on a boat it must say USCG approved or UL listed. it will have either a gauge or a push indicator. it will be a green button on the top or on the front. push it in and if it pops out you are good. if it is on the top and has a white cap on it ,it should have a yellow clip that inserts vertically. make sure it is on when you push down. it is the safety. You should shake the fire ext. every two to three months to loosen up the dry chemicals.
