Recall: Elite Horse Trailer - Unexpected unfurling of awning
RECALL Subject : Unexpected Unfurling of the Awning
Report Receipt Date: JUL 23, 2013
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V321000
Potential Number of Units Affected:
All Products Associated with this Recall
Vehicle Make Model Model Year(s)
ELITE HORSE TRAILER 2003
Manufacturer: Compass Conversions, LLC
Compass Conversions is recalling one model year 2007 Bloomer Horse Trailer and one model year 2003 Elite Horse Trailer. 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.
Compass Conversions will notify owners and Dometic staff will replace the affected motors with one of a different design. The recall is expected to begin in August 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)
