Summary:
ON CERTAIN RECREATIONAL VEHICLES, THE POWER LIFT ROOF SYSTEM, WHICH CONSISTS OF A POWER LIFT MOTOR AND CURRENT LIMITER CONTROLLER, GENERATES EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF IMPACT TORQUE IF THE POWER LIFT IS OPERATED WITH THE 30A POWER CORD PLUGGED INTO A 110V AC POWER SOURCE (WITH OR WITHOUT A BATTERY).
Consequence:
THIS COULD CAUSE FAILURE IN ONE OF THE SHEAR PINS RESULTING IN DAMAGE TO THE TRAILER'S LIFT SYSTEM. THIS COULD ALLOW THE ROOF TO FREE-FALL FROM THE RAISED POSITION, POSSIBLY RESULTING IN PERSONAL INJURY, VEHICLE AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.
Remedy:
OWNERS WILL BE PROVIDED WITH TWO WARNING STICKERS THAT EXPLAINS THE PROPER FUNCTION OF THE POWER LIFE ACCESSORY USING A BATTERY ONLY. ONE STICKER WILL BE PLACED AT THE REAR OF THE TRAILER NEXT TO THE CURRENT LIMITER. THE SECOND STICKER WILL BE PLACED NEXT TO THE 30A POWER CORD OUTLET. IN ADDITION, FLEETWOOD FOLDER WILL SEND A COPY OF THE OPERATION MANUAL THAT EMPHASIZES THE BATTERY-ONLY OPERATION OF THIS TRAILER ACCESSORY. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING OCTOBER 2007. OWNERS MAY CONTACT FLEETWOOD FOLDING AT 1-814-443-7367.
