I listed 3 for replacement around the first of Nov. Received first replacement within about 2 weeks. Second replacement arrived about 3 weeks after the first and finally got the last new replacement about a week ago. Overall, took about 6 weeks to get all 3 new replacements. The 2nd replacement extinguisher I received was a larger and better model (a commercial model with short hose) than any of the types that I submitted for replacement but no problems with it, other than I had to remove the old bracket and install the larger one, and I put it in our motor home.

After telling me that the replacement extinguishers were on indefinite backorder, my replacement showed up on my doorstep this morning. I'll call Fedex on Tuesday to have them come get the old one.

When I got my replacement, they had instructions to call FedEx for a pick up. I was out today and thought I might save everyone some time by dropping it off at a FedEx store that was on my way. The guy working there saw the box and said "is that a fire extinguisher?". I said yes and he said that they had been told not to accept them by FedEx. So I'll call for a pickup and leave it on the front porch. Denver has been having significant problems with porch pirates recently, so if one decides to grab it, they are welcome to it. Just as effective for me as FedEx picking it up.

Makes me wonder if they made a deal w corporate FedEx and not the private owned stores? They keep saying 30-40 million and that's a lot of freight. Got to think someone got an awful good rate for that!!! Thx, Dennis.

I dropped off 2 of my return extinguishers, at 2 different times, at Office Depot in Deland, FL. They are a FedEx drop point. They accepted them with no problem. Last one I took in was a few days before Christmas, so maybe this is something new.

You are partially correct

Since most are CO2 extinguishers, how do they lose their effectiveness if that haven't leaked the charge?

"According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards adopted by most federal and state safety agencies, a non-rechargeable fire extinguisher must be removed from service, discarded and replaced with a new unit every 12 years, unless the manufacturer specifies an earlier expiration date."
As far as replacement goes on a boat it is determined by length. CO2 extinguisher are used only in a certain application. I have attached couple of links for clarification. Stay safe out there.

What type of fire extinguisher does the USCG require on a boat
