Report Receipt Date: SEP 12, 2013

NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V419000

Component(s): LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES

Potential Number of Units Affected: 2

All Products Associated with this Recall
Lakota 2007 model year, models: 3HSLBP & 4HSLNG6


Manufacturer: Lakota Corporation

SUMMARY:
Lakota is recalling one model year 2007 3HSLBP and one model year 4HSLGN6 travel trailer, each equipped with a Fastec-brand door lock. 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:
Lakota 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 mid-October 2013. Owners may contact Lakota at 1-574-848-1636 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505. Lakota's recall number is EQ 13-006.

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