An incorrect part installed on the gas tank is forcing a recall from an Indiana-based recreational vehicle manufacturer.
Earlier this month, Allied Recreation Group, Inc. (ARG) recalled certain model year 2016 vehicles that didn't receive the proper gas tank fitting. The affected vehicles may have been improperly manufactured with a vertical propane gas tank regulator, instead of the horizontal gas tank regulator required.
Use of the incorrect regulator can allow moisture to build up, causing the regulator to malfunction. If the regulator fails to operate properly, it can cause a propane gas leak, increasing the risk of a fire.
Allied believes that about 90 vehicles are affected by the recall. The specific models are the Fleetwood Flair, Storm, Terra SE, Jamboree Sport, Tioga Montara, Tioga Ranger, Holiday Rambler Admiral, and Monaco Trek.
ARG is not aware of any accidents or injuries which have resulted from this safety defect.
ARG will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and local dealers will inspect the motorhomes and replace the regulator, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on August 14, 2015.
For more information on the recall, owners may contact ARG customer service at (800) 509-3417.
