What's the Problem?
This recall affects Grand Design Solitude recreational trailers from model years 2017-2020, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
"The liquid propane (LP) supply line that runs through the exterior lower refrigerator compartment may contact the burner tube of the refrigerator, possibly damaging the line and causing an LP gas leak," NHTSA said. "An LP gas leak increases the risk of a fire."
Grand Design is notifying owners and dealers will inspect the LP supply line for damage, replacing it as necessary, free of charge.
This recall began on September 17, 2020.

Class Action Alleges Grand Design Manufactures Leaky RVs, Provides Bogus Fixes
A class action lawsuit filed in April 2021 in a Florida federal court alleges that Grand Design RV dodges liability on a known defect by providing “band-aid” fixes that don’t work to burn out its customers’ warranty periods.
Plaintiff Gregory Gorecki alleges Grand Design violated multiple federal warranty laws and Florida consumer law in the sale and service of its Imagine Series RV. Specifically, Gorecki claims that Imagine Series RVs were manufactured with a defect in an exterior seal which causes water to enter the vehicle, causing damage and mold.
While Grand Design was aware of the flaw after many customer complaints and warranty repairs, the company continued to make the RVs in the same manner and began providing superficial fixes in order to waste customers’ warranty periods, according to the lawsuit.
“Rather than honor its warranty and replace the defective components of the RV with non-defective parts or an RV of similar value, Grand Design pretends that certain ‘fixes’ will cure the water intrusion problem caused by the Defect,” the complaint states.
The lawsuit is: Gregory Gorecki et al., v. Grand Design RV, LLC, Case No. 8:21-cv-01023-MSS-JSS, in the U.S. District Court Middle District of Florida Tampa Division.
