SamAlert: Several 2010-11 Fleetwood RVs Recalled!
NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 11V399000
Component: Electrical System: Fuses and Circuit Breakers
Potential number of units affected: 359
Fleetwood RV is recalling certain model year 2010 American Eagle, American Tradition, Discovery, Revolution LE, and model year 2011 American Eagle, American Heritage, American Tradition, Bounder, Bounder Classic, Discovery, Expedition, Providence, Revolution LE, and Southwind Class A motor homes equipped with Murray or Siemens brand circuit breakers. These circuit breakers have a non-conforming “spring clip” plug-in assembly that breaks or fails to provide sufficient force to maintain a proper electrical connection in the panel board.
Consequence: This condition could lead to excessive temperature, arcing or thermal damage at the connection point, and potential damage to the panel board’s electrical insulation. This could lead to fire, property damage, or personal injury.
Dealers will inspect and replace the circuit breakers if necessary, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during August 2011. Owners may contact Fleetwood owner relations at 1-800-509-3418.
Fleetwood’s safety recall number 110728FRV. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
