BRECKENRIDGE BRECKENRIDGE 2013
Manufacturer: Dutchmen Manufacturing, Inc.
Dutchmen Manufacturing is recalling certain model year 2013 Breckenridge recreational vehicles manufactured February 13, 2013, through April 9, 2013. If the awning installation sequence was not completely followed, the awning motor may unknowingly become damaged.
If motor damage has occurred, it is possible that the awning can unfurl unexpectedly, either while the vehicle is at rest or while in transit, increasing the risk of personal injury or a vehicle crash.
Dutchmen will notify owners and dealers will replace the affected motors with a design that is not subject to an out-of-sequence installation error. This will be done at no cost to the owner. Owners are being instructed not to drive their vehicle until repairs can be performed. Owners may contact Dutchmen at 1-574-537-0700.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153)
