Lance trailer recall: batteries may fall out during travel

Lance Camper Manufacturing is recalling 1,164 model year 2018 travel trailers, models 1985, 1995, 2185, 2155, 2295, and 2375. The battery on the vehicles may move within its compartment while the vehicle is in motion, causing the door to open and allowing the battery to fall out.

If the battery falls out of the compartment with the trailer being towed, it may become a road hazard, increasing the risk of crash.

Lance will notify owners, and dealers will install a retrofit strap kit free of charge to keep the battery from moving. The recall is expected to begin February 15, 2018. Owners may contact Lance customer service at 1-661-949-3322.

Try driving in 7 deg. weather and staying warm, ( was taking it home from the Dealer). I had heat! But the air coming in was so cold you had to… Read more »

My wife and I have been seriously looking at the Lance trailer line thinking they are not the junk of other manufactures but this is a common sense issue and a MAJOR OVERSIGHT from a quality company ..now we must reconsider once again..It seems even the quality leaders are following the junkers..Now totally confused..maybe be an older trailer and spend the money to update and then no surprises..

Our 2018 -1985 came with strapped down 6v batteries. Straps need to be released before the battery tray slides out.

Unbelieveable! Lance wouldn’t put In a hold-down restraining strap for a sliding, 30+ lb battery? Sounds like the old adage, “Never enough time to do the job right to begin with, but always enough time to do the job over.”
