SUMMARY:
HL Enterprise Inc. is recalling certain model year 2013 Hyline HY42IKEB and HY44, model year 2013 Georgian Bay GB39CKT, model year 2013 Bridgeview BV42IKWT, and model year 2013 Premier FW44 and HY42 trailers. Due to a design change in the power awning motor assembly, the motor assembly screws may unknowingly shear.


CONSEQUENCE:
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.

REMEDY:
HL Enterprise Inc. will notify owners and Dometic staff will replace the affected motors with one of a different design. The recall is expected to begin in late 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.

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