January 6, 2016

Owners of recreational vehicles from Highland Ridge RV may be saddled with a faulty drainage system.

The auto manufacturer is issuing a recall for certain model year 2015 Open Range fifth wheels and 2015-2016 3X fifth wheels and Highlander travel trailers. The recalled models are equipped with a side vented sewer drainage system termination valve. The vehicles may be missing a caution label to inform the operator not to leave the drain valve open to prevent an escape of sewer gas.

If the drain valve is left open, sewer gas may fill the recreational vehicle, increasing the risk of occupant injury.

Highland Ridge is recalling about 180 vehicles.

The company will notify owners and send them the missing label, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in January 2016.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact Highland Ridge customer service at (260) 768-7771.
