NHTSA motorhome recall: August 2010 Print E-mail
Published: Friday, 06 August 2010 12:52
Roadtrek is recalling certain 2008 through 2010 Roadtrek 17PC, 17VC, 19PC, 19VC, 21PC and 21VC model Type B motorhomes built on GM Express van chassis from Jan. 1, 2008, through Jan, 1, 2010.

On some motorhomes, the lumbar support wire harness that is between the switch and the lumbar motor may have insulation that is not rated against risk of fire as per specification.

A short in the 12-volt wire harness could cause the insulation to melt or burn, creating a source of ignition that could result in a fire.

Roadtrek will notify owners and dealers will replace the wire harness in both the driver-side and passenger-side front seats as required, free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin during August 2010.

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 10V333000
Potential Number of Units Affected: 644

For current information about recalls, including information about the recall history of a particular make and model vehicle, call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Auto Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236; or, search the NHTSA recall database. Even if your motorhome is not involved in a current recall, make sure the vehicle manufacturer and the chassis manufacturer have your current contact information on file for any possible future recalls.
