National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued the following RV recalls:

Triple E Recreational Vehicles

Unprotected Ceiling Pot Light Wires May Cause Fire

Triple E Recreational Vehicles is recalling certain 2020 Wonder W24RTB, W24MB, and W24FTB travel trailers. The 12V ceiling pot light wires are not protected with a grommet where they pass through the aluminum tubing, allowing them to chafe and arc. Arcing wires can increase the risk of a fire.

The recall potentially affects 10 units.

Triple E has notified owners, and dealers will cover the ceiling pot light wiring in a split tubing or install a grommet to protect the wire from the metal edges of the tubing, free of charge. The recall began March 1. Owners may contact Triple E customer service at 1-877-992-9906. Triple E’s number for this recall is CA#9643-1.

Heartland Recreational Vehicles is recalling certain 2020 Shadow Cruiser Ultra Lite trailers. The Certification Label indicates an incorrect GVWR and axle rating.

The recall potentially affects five units.

Heartland will notify owners and send them corrected replacement labels, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 11. Owners may contact Heartland customer service at 1-877-262-8032.
