Highland Ridge, Keystone and Starcraft issued unrelated recalls for units from the companies’ 2015-16 lineup, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported Monday (March 14). 

Highland Ridge RV is recalling up to 1,912 units from its 2015-16 Highland Toy Hauler, Light, Mesa Ridge, and Roamer travel and fifth wheel trailers, on which the gross vehicle weight rating calculation on the label may be incorrect, which can allow the vehicle to be overloaded.

Highland RIdge will notify owners and will provide a corrected label, free of charge. One model, the HT31RGR Highland Toy Hauler will require two heavier axles installed and five larger tires as well.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Highland RIdge customer service at 1-260-768-7771. Highland Ridge’s number for this recall is 9904283.

Keystone RV Co. is recalling 107 of its 2016 Sprinter vehicles equipped with a Haier television, model 55E2500, mounted to the wall. These televisions may break off of the wall mounting inside the vehicle.

Keystone will notify owners, and dealers will replace the television. The recall began Feb. 23. Owners may contact Keystone customer service at 1-866-425-4369. Keystone’s number for this recall is 16-247.

Starcraft RV is recalling five of its 2016 Solstice and Travel Star fifth wheel trailers equipped with Atwood on-demand water heaters. The affected water heaters have a water and gas valve that may cause the water heater to overheat the water in the hot water supply tap.

The overheating of the water may result in the release of steam, possibly causing operators to scald themself, increasing the risk of injury.

Starcraft will notify owners, and dealers will install a water flow adjustment stop key that prevents the recall condition from occurring. The recall began on March 9. Owners may contact Starcraft customer service at 1-800-945-4787. Starcraft’s number for this recall is 9902282.
