Jayco is recalling certain model year 2013-2017 Redhawk motorhomes due to substandard shower curtains. The affected vehicles are equipped with shower curtains that may not adequately resist catching fire in the presence of an ignition source. As a result, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS), "Flammability of Interior Materials."

A flammable shower curtain may further fuel a fire, increasing the risk of injury.

Approximately 2,240 motorhomes could potentially be affected by this recall.

Jayco has notified owners, and dealers will replace the shower curtains with curtains made with fire retardant, free of charge.

Owners with additional concerns or questions may contact Jayco customer service at (800) 283-8267. Jayco's reference number for this recall is 9903318.
