Starcraft RV is issuing a recall for travel trailers due to improper wiring.

The recreational vehicle manufacturer is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2016 Travel Star travel trailers, models G2JB5099-5101, JD5093-5094, JF5079, JG5067, and JN5065-5066, and Launch Ultra Lite travel trailers, models G2JM5112-5113, JR5187-5197, JS5179-5196, JT5533-5639, JU5121-5155, and JZ5128-5160. In the affected trailers, the water heater may be improperly wired such that the warning light will not illuminate to let the operator know that the gas is on but did not ignite.

If the warning light does not illuminate to notify the operator that the gas did not ignite, a buildup of gas may result, increasing the risk of fire in the presence of an ignition source.

Starcraft is recalling about 250 trailers in connection with this defect.

Starcraft will notify owners, and dealers will correct the water heater wiring, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during November 2015.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Starcraft customer service at (800) 945-4787.
