Fleetwood RV is recalling certain model year 2011 Bounder, Bounder Classic, Southwind, Storm and Terra Class A motor homes built on Ford chassis and manufactured from May 4, 2010 through January 26, 2011. A wire harness that is routed under the motor home, near the chassis rail, can contact a heat shield located next to the passenger side engine exhaust manifold. The close proximity can cause the harness to melt or be otherwise damaged.

NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 11V298000

Component: Electrical System: Wiring

Potential number of units affected: 561

Consequence: A damaged wire harness can result in an electrical short, which can post a risk of electrical shock and/or lead to a fire.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect and reroute the wire harness away from the heat shield. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during June 2011. Owners may contact Fleetwood owner relations at 1-800-509-3418.

Reminder: If your RV has been recalled, please take your RV to an authorized service station as soon as possible.
