Winnebago Industries is recalling 8,842 units from its 2013-16 Winnebago Era, Travato, View, Trend, Via, Journey, and Tour motorhomes and Itasca Navion, Viva, Reyo, Meridian, and Elipse motorhomes due to a faulty liquid propane hose, which may harden and result at a leak in the crimp fitting, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Winnebago will notify owners, and dealers will replace the LP hose. Remedy parts are not currently available.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Winnebago customer service at 641-585-3535.

Keystone RV Company is recalling 240 models from its 2016 Retreat recreational trailers and 2016 Residence. The affected vehicles may have been manufactured with an insufficient weld on the rear mounting plate that the detachable A-frame is bolted to.

If the A-Frame plate detaches from the frame while the vehicle is in motion it can reduce vehicle handling, increasing the risk of a crash.

Keystone will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the welds and repair them as necessary. The recall is expected to begin Oct. 16. Owners may contact Keystone customer service at 1-866-425-4369. Keystone’s number for this recall is 15-238.

Tiffin Motorhomes is recalling 140 units from its 2010-12 Phaeton motorhomes with floor plans QBH, QKH, and QTH due to an exhaust pipe that is mounted too close to the underside of the floor.

Although these vehicles may have been previously repaired for this condition under recall number 11V-416, it is important that the affected vehicles receive the revised remedy of this recall.

Insufficient spacing between the exhaust pipe and the floor may result in the insulation melting and an increased risk of a fire.

Tiffin will notify owners, and dealers will change the configuration of the exhaust to provide extra clearance between it and the floor. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Tiffin customer service at 1-256-356-8661.

Riverside RV is recalling 132 of its 2015 Retro Travel Trailers, models 177SE, 166, 195, and 509, which are equipped with Coker whitewall tires.

The affected trailers are equipped with Tire and Loading labels that list incorrect tire pressure information. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 574, “Tire Identification & Recordkeeping.”

Riverside has reprinted and sent the corrected labels to owners and dealers. The recall began Aug. 28. Owners may contact Riverside customer service at 1-260-499-4578.
