SamAlert: Keystone Recalls Continue!
Component: Electrical System
Potential number of units affected: 6,101
Summary: Keystone has revised their remedy process and is again recalling certain 2009-2011 vehicles with the “generator ready” option, or with standard generator. See the list below for the affected models. Some IOTA ITS-50R transfer switches are experiencing failures when exposed to high electrical loads. The failure is causing connections and wiring in the transfer switch to degrade and over heat.
Keystone Alpine (2010-2011)
Keystone Avalanche (2010-2011)
Keystone Challenger (2009-2010)
Keystone Everest (2009-2010)
Keystone Fuzion (2009-2011)
Keystone Montana (2009-2011)
Keystone Montana Big Sky (2009)
Keystone Montana High Country (2010-2011)
Keystone Montana-big Sky (2009-2011)
Keystone Montana-mountaineer (2010-2011)
Consequence: Continued use of the vehicle without replacing the transfer switch may damage other appliances, increase the risk of a fire, personal injury, and property damage.
Remedy: Keystone will notify owners, and dealers will replace the transfer switch, free of charge. The remedy for the previous recall (10V-594) was to inspect and tighten the switch connections. The safety recall was schedule to begin during January. Owners may contact Keystone customer service at 1-866-425-4369.
