Recalls - 2000 COACHMEN 322QB

What is a recall? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, generally in cooperation with the vehicle manufacturer, issues recalls when a motor vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment (including tires) does not comply with a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard or when there is a safety-related defect in the vehicle or equipment. Work dictated by a recall is generally completed at no charge to the vehicle owner, regardless of whether you are the first owner or a subsequent owner. Please contact your service facilities for additional details and to confirm that this recall is relevant to your particular vehicle.

Defect Description

ON CERTAIN REAR DIESEL MOTOR HOMES EQUIPPED WITH OPTIONAL GAS GENERATORS, THE GENERATOR FUEL FILL GAS CAP PROVIDED WITH THE UNIT MAY NOT COMPLETELY SEAL AGAINST THE RIM OF THE FILL TUBE.

Defect Consequence

THIS COULD ALLOW ANY GAS THAT IS SPLASHED AGAINST THE CAP DURING VEHICLE OPERATION, SUDDEN STOPS, OR TURNS, OR A CRASH, TO LEAK OUT. IF GAS IS ALLOWED TO LEAK OUT THROUGH THE UNSEALED CAP/FILL CONNECTION, THE POTENTIAL FOR A FIRE EXISTS.

Defect Corrective Action
