Has your RV been involved in a recall in the last year?

You’d be here for a very, very long time if we listed all the recalls on RVs this past year. We here at RVtravel.com post a recall almost daily, and that’s just a tiny fraction of those that get posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website.

Within the last year, has your RV been involved in a recall? If so, was it for just one thing or multiple things or multiple times? After you vote in the poll, please leave a comment and tell us about that recall and what it meant for you.

Also, be sure you read Ron Burge’s story in last Saturday’s newsletter, “Is your RV a death trap? For some RVers, the answer could be ‘yes’“. It’s a fascinating, though scary, look at RV recalls. The information is good to know and keep in mind.

Stay safe out there, folks.

Believe the fire issue, hot water tank caught back end of my brand new 2022 jayco on fire over recalled regulator that’s “ok to use”

No my 5er hasn’t had a recall this year, but it probably should have. Everytime I tow it somewhere I end up having to fix something.

We had a recall for the skylight in our then new Keystone Cougar. We’re on a seasonal spot and our tow vehicle isn’t able to tow it (we upgraded when we decided to go seasonal) but the nearby Camping World sent people over to look at the leak, take the pictures and when Keystone approved the replacement skylight, came over to replace it. They made it clear the only reason they did it on site was because it was a recall.

I received a notice on my 2020 Mesa Ridge for the propane regulator, checked with the nearest dealer (60 miles away) and sent them pics of the unit, they said if it was in the recall they would be in touch with me to schedule an appointment. Never heard anymore so I’m assuming it’s ok.

My 2021 Jayflights propane regulator didn’t have the number matching for the recall. Sent a picture to the dealer, never heard anything, but when I took it in for other warrenty work 3 months later. They replaced the propane regulator.

My 2018 KZ 270THLE had a propane regulator that was within the date code of a recall. I contacted KZ and was told that they do not have any replacement regulators due to the supply chain issue. In the mean time they told me to keep an eye on pressure an to stop using the propane if there was a problem. They told me to buy a regulator and they would reimburse me for the part and also both hoses. There were none to be found anywhere. Multiple emails and phone calls to KZ resulted in the same answers. When I questioned KZ about about how they were shipping shipping new trailers without regulators, I was told they had enough on stock on the production line to continue building the new trailers and I would have to wait until they had regulators to replace the recalled units.
Four months passed and they still did not have replacements.
All of a sudden they told me that my regulator was NOT within the recall window even though the date code showed was within the range.

PS: I was finally able to find a replacement but KZ refused to reimburse me.

Bob…not new. Look at all the airbag recalls where they told everyone to keep driving and they would get back to them. In the mean time they kept pumping out new cars with working/non recalled airbags. You would think that the safety regulators would say “STOP fix the ones on the road and too bad you can’t sell new ones.” But I guess paying settlements for a few people being killed is cheaper.
