Two motorhome manufacturers have issued recalls for vehicles with mislabeled drainage systems.

First, Open Range RV Company is recalling 48 model year 2014-2015 3X recreational trailers, model 388RKS, equipped with a side vented sewer drainage system termination valve. The affected 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.

Additionally, Starcraft RV is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Autumn Ridge, and Solstice fifth wheel trailers suffering from the same issue.

Both Open Range and Starcraft will notify owners and send them the missing label, free of charge. The manufacturers have not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about these recalls can contact Open Range customer service at (260) 768-7771 and Starcraft customer service at (800) 945-4787.
