Winnebago Industries is recalling almost 4,000 2014-2017 Itasca Cambria, 2015-2017 Winnebago ERA, Travato, Fuse, Aspect, Vista, and 2015-2016 Itasca Sunstar recreational vehicles. The affected vehicles have a power cord connection to the automatic transfer switch (ATS) that may not be properly tightened.

A loose power connection may cause a buildup of heat at the connection, increasing the risk of a fire.

Winnebago will notify owners, and dealers will tighten the power cord connection, replacing the ATS box and switch, as necessary. These repairs will be performed free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
