I have no further information on this, except to send along a heads up sent to us this morning from a non-Alpine friend:

"Western RV is recalling 85 MY Alpine Coach Class A motorhomes equipped with Atwood sealed burner ranges. The range and slide-in burner tubes leading from the gas manifold to the burner heads had a depression or "kink" in the exterior bend restricting proper airflow and gas mixture. This condition could result in carbon monoxide poisoning. Western RV is working with Atwood to have the tubes replaced on these ranges. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign. This recall was the subject of an Equipment Query, EA07-006, conducted by the Office of Defects Investigation. 08V-005."

Be aware that WRV is not the only RV mfg issuing a recall, other mfg'ers that used this same Atwood range top are also issuing recalls.
