Manufacturer: Winnebago Industries, Inc

SUMMARY:
Winnebago Industries is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Minnie Winnie, Chalet, Aspect, Sightseer, Adventurer, and Journey motorhomes; and model year 2012-2014 Itasca Spirit, Cambria, Sunova, Suncruiser, and Meridian motorhomes. The affected vehicles were manufactured January 10, 2012, through April 5, 2013 and may be missing a range enclosure.


CONSEQUENCE:
A missing range enclosure may allow the gas range flame to be extinguished due to air flow. In such a case, propane gas will continue to flow without a flame. If propane continues to flow, in the presence of an ignition source, it may suddenly combust resulting in a fire and/or personal injury.

REMEDY:
Winnebago notify owners and dealers will install a range enclosure, free of charge. The safety recall will begin by the end of May 2013. Owners may contact Winnebago at 1-641-585-3535. Winnebago's recall campaign number is 128.


NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153)
