Airstream Inc. is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Airstream Interstate NCV3 B motorhomes manufactured Aug. 1, 2014, to May 18, 2015, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In the affected vehicles, if the screen door is in the closed position and the vehicle’s curbside sliding door is closed, the motorhome occupants may not be able to move the screen door in order to open the sliding door to exit the vehicle.
If occupants are unable to open the sliding door and exit the vehicle in the event of an emergency, they would be at an increased risk of injury.
Airstream will notify owners, and dealers will attach a stop on the screen door to keep the sliding door from shutting if the screen door is closed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2015. Owners may contact Airstream customer service at 1-937-596-6111 extension 7401 or 7411.
Another RV manufacturer, Tiffin Motorhomes, is recalling certain model year 2015 Allegro Red 36 QSA, Allegro Red 38 QBA, Phaeton 40 QBH, and Phaeton 40 QKH motorhomes manufactured April 22, 2014, to May 8, 2015.
In the affected vehicles, moisture may enter the slide-out controller and cause the “switch out” connection to short, and cause the motorhome slide-out section to extend while the motorhome is moving.
If the slide-out opens during transit, there is an increased risk of a vehicle crash.
Tiffin will notify owners, and dealers will install a relay to disconnect the power source of the slide-out, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2015. Owners may contact Tiffin customer service at 1-256-356-8661.
