Update: REV Recalls Fleetwood Motorhomes Over Fire Hazard
REV Recreation Group is recalling the following motorhomes which were sold with cooking stoves that may leak gas:
- 2020-2021 Fleetwood Flair
- 2020-2021 Bounder
- 2020-2021 Southwind
- 2020-2021 Fortis
- 2020-2021 Holiday Rambler Vacationer
- 2020-2021 Invicta
- 2020-2021 Admiral
These motorhomes are equipped with a dometic propane gas stove, model R1731 or R2131 manufactured November 2018 or later or model S31 manufactured November 2018 or later.
"In certain stove serial number ranges, a gas leak may occur in the cooking stove," NHTSA said. "A gas leak can
increase the risk of a fire."
This recall began on December 2, 2020.
What's the Problem?
This recall affects the following recreational vehicles:
- 2016-2020 Fleetwood Bounder
- 2016-2020 Holiday Rambler Vacationer
- 2018-2020 Fleetwood Southwind
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the generator exhaust pipe placement exits these motorhomes within the vehicles' departure angle. If the generator exhaust pipe is damaged, it may cause carbon monoxide to enter the RV, increasing the risk of an injury or death from carbon monoxide poisoning.
REV Recreational Group is notifying all known owners, and dealers will fix the problem free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on Jan. 31, 2020.
