REV Group recalls some Flair, Holiday Rambler motorhomes

4

REV Recreation Group (REV) is recalling certain 2019 Fleetwood Flair and Holiday Rambler Admiral motorhomes. The generator exhaust pipe placement exits the motorhome within the vehicle’s departure angle.

If a motorhome is driven on an incline, the generator exhaust pipe may get damaged, possibly resulting in carbon monoxide entering the vehicle when the generator is running, increasing the risk of injury or death.

REV has notified owners, and dealers will inspect and reroute the generator exhaust pipe, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began May 21, 2019. Owners may contact REV customer service at 1-800-509-3417. REV’s number for this recall is 190412REV.

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

  1. I’m not sure what “departure angle” is, but I see a lot of big buck motorhomes with the generator exhaust pipe right in front of the front wheels. I always wonder how they don’t get broken off if the ground is a bit rough (like a campground with dirt instead of pavement).

    • Hi, Tommy. I wondered the same thing when I was proofing this post. I thought it might have been a typo, but all of the NHTSA and REV recall documents said the same thing. I just now dug further (because of your comment) and found this link, which describes the problem and how it needs to be fixed. There are pictures and at least one shows the location of the “departure angle.” Hope this helps. 😀 –Diane at RVtravel.com https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2019/RCRIT-19V306-3593.pdf

        • Sorry, Robert. It worked a month ago when I wrote that comment. I get the “Access Denied” now, too. You might just want to try Googling “NHTSA departure angle”. I see several options, but I’m heading to the dentist right now and don’t have time to investigate any further. Sorry. 🙁 —Diane at RVtravel.com
