Safety - Is Your RV On The Recall List

I have posted before regarding Safe Cars web site on safety recalls. There are recalls by month on the web site. The below is just some regarding RV's for the month of August. Please, check this site periodically so that you can be informed.

===================

Fleetwood RV is recalling certain model year 2010 American Eagle, American Tradition, Discovery,
Revolution LE, and Model Year 2011 American Eagle, American Heritage, American Tradition,
Bounder, Bounder Classic, Discovery, Expedition, Providence, Revolution LE, and Southwind Class A
motor homes equipped with Murray or Siemens brand circuit breakers. These circuit breakers have a
non-conforming "spring clip" plug-in assembly that breaks or fails to provide sufficient force to maintain
a proper electrical connection in the panel board. This condition could lead to excessive temperature,
arcing or thermal damage at the connection point, and potential damage to the panel board's electrical
insulation. This could lead to fire, property damage, or personal injury. Dealers will inspect and replace
the circuit breakers if necessary, free of charge. The safety recall began on August 25, 2011. Owners
may contact Fleetwood owner relations at 1-800-509-3418.
Winnebago is recalling certain model year 2012 ERA motor homes manufactured from November 11,
2010, through July 13, 2011, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety
Standard No. 120, "Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles other than Passenger Cars." These
vehicles are equipped with the wrong vehicle weight label. Noncompliance issue - weight information on
the wrong format label Owners will be provided with new labels and installation instructions. At the
customer's option, a dealer can perform the installation for them. This service will be performed free of
charge. The safety recall began on August 19, 2011. Owners may contact Winnebago at 1-641-585-
6939.

11V-400

================

Airstream is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Avenue coaches manufactured from May 10, 2010,
through July 29, 2011. The driver's and passenger's seat swivel mechanism locking pin could loosen and
become disengaged from the swivel mechanism allowing the seat to swivel back and forth going down
the road. This swiveling, could lead to a distraction that could cause a crash, resulting in personal injury
to the vehicle's occupants. Airstream will notify owners, and dealers will repair the coaches free of
charge. The safety recall began on August 19, 2011. Owners may contact Airstream at 1-937-538-1268.
11V-401

====================

Tiffin is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 Phaeton motorhomes with floor plans QBH, QKH, and
QTH that are built with 2010 EPA-certified engines on Powerglide chassis. The exhaust pipe is mounted
too close to the underside of the floor. Melting of the insulation can occur, possibly resulting in a fire.
Tiffin will notify owners, and dealers will attach a heat shield to the bottom of the floor and an insulating
sock or blanket will be wrapped around the exhaust pipe. These repairs will be performed free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin during September 2011. Owners may contact Tiffin at 1-256-356-8661.

11V-416

===================

Spartan is recalling certain model year 2010, 2011, and 2012 recreational vehicles, models MM, K2, K3,
Bus, Furion, Gladiator, and Metro Star, manufactured from September 29, 2010, through June 20, 2011,
equipped with a Cummins ISB, ISC, ISL, or ISX diesel engine. The V-band clamp assembly, part
numbers Q187684, Q187685, and Q187686, used to connect the inlet and outlet cone sections to the
Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)/Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) include a T-bolt which can fracture and
fail when subjected to stress or load. A fracture or failure of the T-bolt may cause the clamp to loosen
and the inlet or outlet sections attached to the DOC/DPF housing to disconnect. If the inlet or outlet
sections disconnect, hot exhaust gases can vent prior to exiting the tailpipe, creating the risk of
combustion and a fire. If both clamps fail, there is a risk in some applications that the DOC/DPF housing
may detach completely, creating a road hazard. Spartan is working with Cummins to identify and notify
owners of the recall campaign. Repairs will be performed by authorized Cummins dealers free of charge.
The safety recall began on September 12, 2011. Owners may contact Cummins at 1-812-377-5000 or
Spartan at 1-800-543-5008 - Option 5. Cummins recall campaign number is C1154. Spartan's recall
campaign number is 11022.

11V-425

===============

Navistar is recalling certain model year 2011 Monaco Vesta and Holiday Rambler Trip recreational
vehicles manufactured from May 28, 2010, through May 18, 2011. The fuse in the high beam headlight
electrical circuit may blow under normal operating conditions disabling the headlights without warning,
possibly resulting in reduced driver visibility. Reduced driver visibility increases the risk of a crash,
possibly resulting in property damage, personal injury, or death. Navistar will notify owners, and dealers
will modify the wiring and install an uprated fuse, free of charge. Navistar intends to send out an interim
notice to owners if parts will not be available before October 14, 2011. Owners nay contact Navistar at 1-
877-466-6226. Navistar's campaign number is 11517.

11-V429

===============

December 8, 2010, through July 15, 2011. These vehicles may have been manufactured with the exterior
furnace vent not installed in the sidewall of the trailer. The furnace can run without the proper exhaust
ventilation and release carbon monoxide to the interior of the unit. This could result in asphyxiation or
carbon monoxide poisoning. The heat build up from the exhaust can also result in a fire. Dealers will
inspect the trailer to verify the furnace exhaust is present and install one if necessary free of charge. The
safety recall began on August 26, 2011. Owners may contact Dutchmen at 1-574-537-0700.

===============

Winnebago is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 Winnebago Access, Access Premier, Chalet and
Model Year 2011 Itasca Impulse, and Impulse Silver motor homes manufactured from March 5, 2008,
through April 28, 2011. These vehicles may have the potential for the propane supply hose to make
contact with the metal door frame. Contact with the door frame may wear through the hose causing a
propane leak, which could ignite and result in personal injury or death. Dealers will check to make sure
the propane supply hose is not damaged and replace it if necessary and add a clamp to route hose away
from any unfriendly surfaces. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall began on
August 19, 2011. Owners may contact Winnebago Industries Owner Relations at 1-641-585-6939.

manufactured from May 18, 2011, through July 13, 2011. These vehicles may have insufficiently torqued
boltssattaching the trailer hitch to the motorhome frame. Loose hitch bolts could result in the hitch
separating from the frame, creating a road hazard increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and
tighten up the hitch bolts free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during September 2011.
Owners may contact Jayco at 1-800-283-8267.

model year 2009 Domani 5th wheel trailers with generator transfer switches. The generator transfer
switch may not be manufactured or installed to the proper specification causing a potential for excessive
heat build up inside the switch. If enough heat builds up inside the switch, the switch could melt and
catch fire. Dealers will inspect the generator transfer switches and replace them as necessary, free of
charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during September 2011. Owners may contact Carriage at

vehicles manufactured from May 7, 2009, through August 12, 2011. The circuit breaker for the
windshield wiper motor is insufficient for the load. The breaker should have a 15 amp rating, however
the vehicle was built with one rated at 10 amps. The windshield wiper will stop operating if the breaker
trips due to a circuit overload. If this occurs, the driver's field of vision may be reduced, increasing the
risk of a crash. TMC will notify owners, and dealers will exchange the breaker with a 15-amp one, free
of charge. TMC has not provided an expected start date for the recall. Owners may contact TMC

accelerator pedal, reducing braking function. A loose brake pedal increases the risk of a crash. Daimler

You are welcome Joe. Glad someone responded. Thought my post was all in vain.

I was amazed at the amount of recalls, especially in the RV industries.

I added a notice to my pop-up calendar to check it once a month.

Happy trails and safe travels.
