All Products Associated with this Recall:


Manufacturer: EverGreen Recreational Vehicles, LLC

EverGreen Recreational Vehicles, LLC (EverGreen) is recalling certain model year 2013 Bay Hill fifth wheel travel trailers manufactured March 13, 2013, through April 25, 2013. Due to a design change in the power awning motor assembly, the motor assembly screws may unknowingly shear.

If the motor assembly screws shear, 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.

EverGreen will notify owners and Dometic staff will replace the affected motors with motors of a different design. The recall is expected to begin by the end of July 2013. Owners may contact Dometic at 1-888-447-0003 for more information. Owners are being instructed not to drive their vehicle until repairs can be performed.

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