THIA by Proteng: An RV Fire Story

Fire One of Leading Causes of RV Loss

Each year, thousands of motorhome fires uproot individuals, leaving feelings of helplessness and uncertainty. With so little time to react, even the best-prepared RV owners cannot safeguard against these devastating occurrences – until now.

One such instance happened to Courtney and Jeremy Thompson when they experienced a fire on the very first day of their new life as full-time RVers. Thankfully, the Thompsons (and their dog) escaped safely, but their coach was a total loss.

Although Jeremy had spent 37 years as a first responder, his knowledge and skills were no match for the conflagration. After the fire, the couple was forced to ponder their future and maybe even reconsider their hopes for retirement. “Should we even do this?” they thought. 

After some serious soul searching. Courtney and Jeremy decided to continue as full-time RVers, but were adamant about installing a fire suppression system before they did.

THIA by Proteng is a revolutionary fire suppression system designed to eliminate heat at the source, extinguishing fires before they have a chance to spread. 

The system is fully customized to each RV and consists of multiple self-contained THIA devices that wind through areas of the motorhome that can be prone to fire, including the engine, inverter and generator, to name a few. In the event of a fire, the THIA device disperses FM-200, an extinguishing agent that covers the heat source and can suppress and extinguish fires.
