What’s the Problem?

When using 30 AMP service on affected Winnebago Adventurers, the heating coil may not disengage when the Power Control System (PCS) calls to stop the air conditioner power, according to a Recall Notice by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). If the heating coil fails to disengage with the air conditioner, heat can build up inside the unit and cause a fire.

Winnebago is notifying owners and dealers will fix the problem, free of charge. This recall began on Feb. 6, 2020.

Jury Verdict of $500,000 Against Winnebago for Breach of Warranty

In July 2019, a jury verdict was decided against Winnebago for $500,000 in the case of Hanreck et al v. Winnebago. The Plaintiffs sued Winnebago under the federal Mansion Moss Warranty Act and the Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law.

Plaintiffs in the lawsuit claimed that their 2013 Winnebago Adventurer RV had defects including a large slide-out that would not fully retract at times. When the slide-out was unable to be fully retracted, the vehicle could not be driven safely.

The Winnebago Adventurer, which was under warranty, was taken to dealerships for repairs at least 9 times. Plaintiffs alleged that the dealerships failed to repair the RV after these 9 attempts.

Winnebago argued that the Plaintiffs did not meet all the conditions for recovery under the warranty and that they failed to establish damages. After a 5-day trial in the Middle District of Pennsylvania, the 8-member jury returned a verdict in favor of the Plaintiffs against Winnebago for $500,000.
