The presence of faulty kitchen equipment has prompted a trailer recall from Crossroads RV.

The automaker is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Hill Country and Sunset Trail recreational trailers equipped with an outside kitchen compartment. In the affected trailers, the inside range burners may be extinguished unintentionally when the outside kitchen compartment door is opened.

With the burners extinguished, the propane may continue to flow, creating a buildup of propane gas. In the presence of an ignition source, this can lead to a fire or explosion.

Crossroads is including about 115 trailers in its recall.

The company has notified owners, and dealers will install a piece of trim to cover the air gap behind the inside range to the outside kitchen, free of charge. The recall began on June 9, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Crossroads customer service at (855) 226-7496.
