NHSTA recall for battery fuse 2003 Alpine

Hi, this recall is to do with some 2003 Alpines having a 250 amp battery fuse instead of 300 amp which if it blew could suddenly immobilise the vehicle, the recall is not clear which models are affected, can anyone help me with identifying which models this affected please, I am looking to buy a 2003 40FDTS, thank you. Here is the link http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchResults.

P.S. The only other recall for this year was the Dometic fridge which could cause a fire, in case you are interested here is the link for that http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchResults

In 2003 Western Rv only had one model. The recall affected more than one year. WRV sent a replacement 300 amp fuse to me for my 2002 coach. The fuse was easy to replace. Its located in the rear bay on passenger side.

Jim has it right--as I "recall" the fuse is actually on the negative side and is located in the rear maint compartment, below and to the left of the air filter. WRV sent me one shortly after I bought my 03......

That problem went all the way back to '98. Later coaches did not have that fuse in the negative wire. When I bought my coach in '07 it still had the 200A fuse. I guess it was cheaper for WRV to replace the fuse than replace the wiring to eliminate the fuse in older coaches.
