Monaco RV is recalling 3,175 model year 2008-2013 Discover Canada, Holiday Rambler, R-Vision, and McKenzie recreational vehicles (RVs) equipped with Fastec-brand door locks.

On the affected RVs, it may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.

If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the RV door lock may also jam. A person inside the travel trailer at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle without using the emergency exit, increasing the risk of personal injury.

Monaco will directly notify the owners of all recalled RVs, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge.

For further information on this recall, including a full list of all affected RV models, contact Monaco RV toll-free at 877-466-6226 or Fastec at 800-837-2505.
