Report Receipt Date: FEB 27, 2014
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V093000
Potential Number of Units Affected: 10
Manufacturer: Northwest Custom Campers
Northwest Custom Campers (Northwest) is recalling certain model year 2006-2012 truck campers equipped with Fastec-brand door locks. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.
If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the camper at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury.
Northwest will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Northwest Custom Campers at 1-406-885-3662 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 www.safercar.gov.
