ALINER TRAVEL TRAILER 2006-2013


Manufacturer: Columbia Northwest, Inc.

SUMMARY:
Recall: Columbia North West Inc. (Columbia) is recalling certain model year 2006-2013 Aliner travel trailers manufactured January 1, 2006, through April 25, 2013. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.

CONSEQUENCE:
If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the travel trailer at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle without using the emergency exit, increasing the risk of injury.

REMEDY:
Columbia will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by early November 2013. Owners may contact Columbia at 1-724-423-7440 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.

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