RV manufacturers slow to notify owners of their rigs’ fire danger

MONDAY MORNING RECALL REPORT

By Ron Burge
LEMON LAW ATTORNEY
Serious fire danger recalls have been announced for 30,000 RV owners by the federal government, but the owners of those vehicles will not receive warning letters for three weeks.

This week Heartland RV and Cruiser RV issued recalls for defective LP gas fittings, and Triple E RV issued a recall for leaking stove cooktop valves. Both are deadly defect risks if fire breaks out in an RV. Other manufacturers with the same issue have already notified their owners. There’s no explanation of why Heartland and Cruiser did not issue earlier recalls as well.

Heartland says it will not send out a warning letter to the 12,000-plus affected RV owners until July 17. And Cruiser says it will wait until July 17 to warn its nearly 3,000 affected RV owners.

To find any recall for your RV, just do a search for your model year, make, model, and add the word “recall” or the recall number below. Remember: Life is Too Short to Put Up with a Bad RV!
