Winnebago, Itasca RVs recalled for propane hose danger

8

Winnebago Industries, Inc. is recalling 1,654 model year 2012-2013 Winnebago Era, View, and Via motorhomes and Itasca Navion and Reyo motorhomes. The high pressure liquid propane hoses may harden at the crimp fitting, possibly resulting in a propane leak.

A propane leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.

Winnebago will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the propane hose, replacing it as necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Winnebago customer service at 1-641-585-6939 or 1-800-537-1885. Winnebago’s number for this recall is 151.

Winnebago will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the propane hose, replacing it as necessary, free of charge. So, when inspected it may not be harden, but what about later?

Valid point, John. Maybe since the models were from 2012-2013, they would have hardened by now. But I wonder if they would replace them if they weren’t hardened yet (your point), or if they would replace them if they harden in the future. It seems like it would make good sense to replace them now, rather than waiting. Maybe you can call Winnebago customer service at 1-641-585-6939 or 1-800-537-1885 and ask them about this recall #151 for clarification. Good luck! —Diane at RVtravel.com
