More than 87,000 Jayco towable RVs recalled. Propane fire risk

Jayco, Inc. (Jayco) is recalling certain 2017-2018 Jayco Designer, 2017-2021 Eagle HT, Eagle, Jay Feather, Jay Flight SLX, Jay Flight, North Point, Octane Superlite, Pinnacle, White Hawk, 2017-2020 Eagle HT, 2018-2021 Jay Flight Bungalow, 2017-2019 Octane, and 2019-2020 Eagle HTX travel trailers and fifth wheels equipped with a Winntec model 6020 two-stage propane regulator. The regulator may fail, causing an increase in propane pressure.

Increased propane pressure can enlarge the flames in gas appliances, increasing the risk of a fire.

The potential number of units affected is 87,649.

Remedy
Dealers will replace the regulator and test the propane system for leaks, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed August 4, 2021. Owners may contact Jayco customer service at 1-800-283-8267.

Notes
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).

We recently had two recalls both involving gas on our 2020 jay flight Slx.
It took 6 months to get parts for recalls.
Before we received parts we had a fire in our camper under stove and refrigerator beneath floor. Melted gas lines and wires. Now Jayco is telling repair shop not to touch it. I guess my insurance will have to fix and pursue
Subbrogation notification for charges. Jayco more concerned about selling campers than taking care of campers already sold. Heard today another recall coming out after 7/1/22 could not find out anything about it. Think I will just paint a big yellow lemon on it and park along a busy highway.

I have already contacted Camping World on this issue & they’re trying to tell me my RV isn’t in this recall. WRONG. I have checked my regulator & it is the one in the recall. I have to say Camping World is one SORRY company to buy from.
