A faulty water heater is prompting a recall from the Allied Recreation Group (ARG).

The recreational vehicle manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2016 Fleetwood Southwind 34A, 36L, and 32VS motorhomes equipped with Atwood Model 0D50 on-demand water heaters. In the affected vehicles, the on-demand water heaters have a gas valve that may cause the water heater to overheat the water in the hot water supply tap.

The overheating of the water may result in the release of steam, possibly causing the operator to scald themselves and increasing the risk of injury.

ARG is including 11 motorhomes in this recall.

ARG will notify owners and Atwood will provide a remedy for the hot water heater free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact ARG customer service at (800) 509-3417 and Atwood customer service at (574) 264-2131.
