Safety Recall 61101-C Fuel fill hose leak

As I reported earlier this year on my leaking fuel hose on the pass side of the fuel tank. This 3 inch hose has a steel cap, hose, and two clamps. This is used to plug the not used fuel tank fill nipple.

The hose material failed after approx 18 months of use.

Attached is a pic of the cracked hose and the recall notice[IMG]aolemb://73597FDC-4D89-4F53-ACAA-096C3E7A5D8E/DSC04916%20crack%20hose.jpg[/IMG]

Exact wording from the notice I received:

"Workhorse Custom Chassis (Workhorse) has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain W22 and R26 motor home chassis built from February 5, 2007 through May 24, 2010 equipped with optional 75 gallon dual fill fuel tanks."

No mention of 100 gallon tanks in the notice I received. Thanx to Jon Brazel for providing the correct info.

I got the recall notice in the mail recently and don't understand whether the recall applies to us or not.
We have a 2008 W-22 with a 75 gallon tank. I don't recall it being a manufacturers option and it has a single fill on the driver side.
Do they mean that the tank had options for filling on either side and one side is used and the other is capped off?
The motorhome manufacturer (Newmar in our case) may have ordered the chassis from Workhorse with the optional tank, but the tank was not listed as an option to us.
Can anyone clarify?

Kraft Crew, Workhorse on has 1 SKU for 75 gallon gas tanks and they give the OEMs a dual fill capability on all these tanks.

Most likely you have a driver's side fill. There is a 2nd port on the passenger side which is capped. It's that cap that needs to be replaced because of the condition of the materials that was provided was not to Workhorse specs. The problem as you know can manifest as a gasoline or vapor leak especially when you fill your tank.

If you got a recall letter - make no mistake you need to have that campaign cleared.

I was asked to put up this picture for you guys. The material has cracked and this is not in compliance with the requirements set out by Workhorse. If you have received a recall notice in this regard please have it checked and the condition resolved.

That reminds me... my 2003 Newmar Scottsdale was built with heater hose for the fuel tank vent, which rotted apart in five years creating a fuel leak. It was also cut too short, kinking the hose at the bends and making the situation worse. Replacing it with proper fuel hose of the proper length of course solved the problem. The fill hose on the other hand was the right stuff. Go figure.

Note that this was a Newmar issue, not Workhorse.

Fuel Leak Vent Hose

I had a bad fuel leak from the rotted fuel filler vent hose. 2003 Tiffin Allegro Bay W-22. I hope that this is not a trend

Happy Motoring

John, On your 2003 motorhome I don't see it as a trend but "Old Age." The concern and safety recall is being applied to a narrow band of vehicle VIN# whose auxiliary fill port was capped using out of specification materials which were only recently discovered to be defective.

Knock on wood here but ... all my original rubber stuff is still in place and working. I don't recall changing any failed or rubber hoses. Mileage now is 87,400. It is getting to the point now where I am more observant in regard to my hoses but as of today, they are still hanging in there.

My gas tank has been out of my vehicle 3 to 4 times that I'm aware of. When my tank was replaced, there was trouble with the cap on the aux fill port which caused the center to drop the tank again, find and repair the leak.

The tank was just dropped again to replace the fuel pump and so far so good!
