Keystone Recalls Recreational Vehicle Due to Mislabeled Emergency Exit
Faulty labeling is prompting another recreational vehicle recall.
Keystone RV Company is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Keystone Avalanche recreational vehicles, model 355RK. The affected vehicles may be equipped with a rear window that has a sticker labeling it as an emergency exit sticker. However, this window may be partially blocked by the rear ladder and was not intended to be a secondary emergency exit.
In the event of an emergency, occupants could try to escape through the rear window, but would not be able to. This delay in their escape may increase the risk of injury.
The affected vehicles were manufactured between May 6, 2013 and April 24, 2014.
Keystone has notified owners, and dealers will remove the emergency exit sticker, free of charge. The recall began on Aug. 17, 2015. Owners may contact Keystone customer service at (866) 425-4369.
