A small number of trailers are being recalled due to microwaves that start on their own.

About 15 Allied Recreation trailers are included in the recall including model year 2014 Holiday Rambler Presidential fifth wheel trailers and model year 2015 Holiday Rambler Alumascape fifth wheel trailers.

The affected trailers may be equipped with a Frigidaire KG series microwave that may start on their own, heating anything that has been left inside.

Oddly enough, this isn't the first time campers and trailers have been recalled for microwaves that turn on by themselves. The defective microwave caused at least two other recalls in April and May of last year. Most recently, more than 1,000 Forest River RVs were recalled in September 2014.

Owners of the recalled trailers should unplug the microwave when it isn't in use until it can be fixed.

ARG will notify those affected by the recall and dealers will work with service techs from Electrolux to replace the membrane/keypad component, free of charge.

For more information, owners can contact ARG customer service at (800) 509-3417.
