RECALLS FROM NHTSA FOR APRIL 2012
Airstream is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 International Eddie Bauer travel trailers. The Part 567 certification labels on the vehicles contain incorrect tire and rim size information. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims." Incorrect tire and tire pressure information on the label could lead to the installation of a tire with the wrong load rating and insufficient tire pressure. These conditions could result in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash. Airstream will mail to consumers the corrected label and provide instructions on how install the label. The recall will begin in May 2012. Owners should contact Thor at1- 937-596-6849 or Airstream at 1-937-538-1268.
Crossroads is recalling certain model year 2012 Elevation recreational vehicles, manufactured from November 7, 2011, through February 22, 2012. The onboard, auxiliary fuel storage tank is installed too high, which does not permit the tank to be filled properly. As a result, fuel may come back out of the fuel filler neck and spill. In the presence of an ignition source, this could cause a fire or an explosion which may result in personal injury or death. Crossroads will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel tank mounting brackets free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in May 2012. Owners may contact Thor at 1-937-596-6849 or Crossroads at 1-260-593-2866.
