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

EverGreen Recreational Vehicles, LLC (EverGreen) is recalling certain model year 2013 Ever-Lite, Ever-Lite Select, i-Go, and Ascend travel trailers manufactured February 17, 2012, through October 30, 2012 and equipped with Fastec-brand door locks. In the affected trailers, it may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.

Defect Consequence

If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the travel trailer at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle without using the emergency exit, increasing the risk of injury.

Defect Corrective Action

EverGreen will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall began on March 3, 2014. Owners may contact EverGreen at 1-574-825-4298 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.


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
