November 23, 2015

Outdoors RV Manufacturing is issuing a recall for trailers with faulty equipment.

The recreational vehicle manufacturer is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Glacier Peak and Timber Ridge trailers and 2016 Wind River and Black Stone trailers. The affected vehicles may have inadequately secured liquid propane (LP) hoses and electrical wires allowing them to be pinched or scraped during movement of the kitchen slide-out room.

If the wires or lines get pinched or scraped, the wires may short or the LP lines may leak. Either condition increases the risk of a fire.

Outdoors RV is recalling almost 100 vehicles in connection with this defect.

Outdoors RV will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the LP line and electrical wires, securing them as necessary. Any damaged wires or hoses will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late November 2015.

Owners may contact Outdoors RV customer service at (541) 624-5500.
