A recreational vehicle manufacturer is issuing a recall due to an engine malfunction.

Tiffin Motorhomes, Inc. is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2010-2012 Phaeton motorhomes after the discovery that the affected vehicles have an exhaust pipe that is mounted too close to the underside of the floor. Insufficient spacing between the exhaust pipe and the floor may result in the insulation melting and an increased risk of a fire.

The company is recalling about 140 vehicles. The affected vehicles feature QBH, QKH, and QTH floorplans.

Though these vehicles may have already been repaired for this condition under recall number 11V-416, the new repairs are necessary.

Tiffin will notify owners, and dealers will change the configuration of the exhaust to provide extra clearance between it and the floor, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Customers with questions about the recall should contact Tiffin customer service at (256) 356-8661.
