Starcraft RV issued three recalls affecting units across several lines this week, including its Launch, AR-One and Autumn Ridge trailers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the bulk of the recalls, Starcraft recalled 985 units from its 2015-16 Launch, Launch Ultra, AR-One, AR-One Maxx, Autumn Ridge, and Travel Star travel trailers due to incorrectly labeled circuit breaker box.

With an incorrectly labeled circuit breaker box, someone may turn off the wrong breaker to work on the electrical system and receive an electrical shock, according to the report.

Starcraft will notify owners, and will send owners a corrected circuit breaker box label. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Starcraft customer service at 1-800-945-4787. Starcraft’s number for this recall is 9902060.

The company also recalled 224 Launch Ultra Lite travel trailers, floorplan 28BHS JU, from the 2014-16 model years.

The affected trailers are equipped with a Happy Jack bed that will try to lift up too far, damaging the bed’s brackets and motor.

Starcraft will notify owners, and dealers will reposition the bed’s brackets so that it will not lift up too far. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Starcraft customer service at 1-800-945-4787. Starcraft’s recall campaign number is 9902267.

Starcraft RV also recalled 36 of its 2016 Autumn Ridge trailers, model 339BHTS.

The affected trailers have liquid propane (LP) lines and wires routed under the travel trailer. These LP lines and wires may be inadequately protected from road debris.

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Starcraft customer service at 1-800-945-4787. Starcraft’s number for this recall is 9902266.

Jayco is recalling certain model year 2016 Eagle Half Ton (HT) fifth wheel trailers due to warning labels on the towing hitch that do not identify the maximum gross vehicle weight rating for towing, maximum tongue weight and towing vehicle braking information.

Jayco will notify owners, and dealers will apply the proper warning label. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Jayco customer service at 1-800-283-8267. Jayco’s number for this recall is 9901265.
