Keystone recalls towables for fuel issue


Keystone RV Company (Keystone) is recalling 423 model year 2018 Keystone Carbon and Raptor travel trailers and fifth wheels. The vehicles were manufactured without a protective barrier in the fuel station to prevent fuel absorption in the main floor. A fuel station holds fuel for a generator and can also be used to fuel other vehicles transported in the RV, like an ATV or motorcycle. The protective barrier in the fuel station may not have been installed on all units due to an improperly trained installer during production.

Fuel absorption into the main floor can increase the risk of a fire in the presence of an ignition source.

Keystone will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the trailers and install a protective barrier, if necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 10, 2018. Owners may contact Keystone customer service at 1-866-425-4369. Keystone’s number for this recall is 18-317.

Anyone who believes there is ANY kind of quality control in the manufacturing of ANY type, brand, price of RV, has no clue to the reality of the industry. The RV Manufacturing industry is SELF REGULATED.
The 2 seperate gas tanks in my toy hauler were installed and plumbed backwards. AND there was a quality control sticker stuck to the tanks. Hot and cold water to the laundry, backwards. The garage Black water tank was joined to the grey water line from the kitchen sink. NO, not the joining of all dump lines the main dump line. They shared the SAME Gray tank dump slide. Know what the kitchen sink smelled like when you used the garage toilet. The Kitchen sink water lines (pex) was actually nailed to the walls inside the cabinets. No, not water line clamps, nails THRU the pex. Shower drain, not even connected. Shower faucet glued to the back of the shower wall and plumbed backwards. Side out cables, went thru MISS drilled holes and cut thru the side out frame work causing a major leak. Every single visible screw in and on the trailer came loose or came out. Who thinks its a good idea to use self tapping screws in 1/16″ thick bull crap plywood and styrofoam. Water lines actually attached to electrical wiring. 75% of the LED lighting shorted or was non usuable. AND that is only about 1/4 of the issues. And believe it or not there were numerous quality control stickers with peoples names stuck all over the areas in question. When I contacted the manufacturer. What a run around, but I actually got a hold of someone that would tell me something. Most if not all of the names on heae sticker were either bogus or “No longer with the company”.

Proof that quality control and inspections are extremely poor. I suggest a higher standard of training procedures along with closer watch of new employee work for a designated period of time.
