Recalls - 2013 BRECKENRIDGE BRECKENRIDGE

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

Dutchmen Manufacturing is recalling certain model year 2013 Breckenridge recreational vehicles manufactured February 13, 2013, through April 9, 2013. If the awning installation sequence was not completely followed, the awning motor may unknowingly become damaged.

Defect Consequence

If motor damage has occurred, it is possible that the awning can unfurl unexpectedly, either while the vehicle is at rest or while in transit, increasing the risk of personal injury or a vehicle crash.

Defect Corrective Action

Dutchmen will notify owners and dealers will replace the affected motors with a design that is not subject to an out-of-sequence installation error. This will be done at no cost to the owner. Owners are being instructed not to drive their vehicle until repairs can be performed. The recall began on May 30, 2013. Owners may contact Dutchmen at 1-574-537-0700.

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
