Scary. Right after I bought my motorhome I discovered some idiotic wiring by our buddies at Airstream (at least, I assume that's who did it - it was on some fog lights that were normally installed by Airstream). Briefly, the switch for the fogs was illuminated, and the fuse for the fog lights was electrically after the when the switch broke and shorted out, it connected the coach battery to ground, through an unfused 16 gauge wire. I discovered this by noticing the wire was very warm. Bad wiring in a vehicle MEANT to be slept in? I've been on the lookout for similar idiocy ever since.

Ordinary small arms ammunition is not much of a hazard in a fire. Rounds will "cook off", but contrary to cartoons, bullets don't go flying in every direction. The LP gas tanks and vehicle fuel tanks are a greater concern.
