A fuel dispenser defect is prompting a recall from an Indiana-based motorhome manufacturer.

Newmar Corporation is recalling certain model year 2009-2016 Canyon Star toy haulers and model year 2007-2009 All Star toy haulers. The Canyon Star models were manufactured between Nov. 28, 2007 and July 9, 2015, while the All Stars were produced between Jan. 30, 2006 and Oct. 21, 2009.

In the recalled vehicles, there is unprotected flammable plastic wrap surrounding the exterior fuel dispensing system which could burn if exposed to an ignition source. If the exterior fuel dispensing compartment were to catch fire, the surrounding plastic wrap material could burn increasing the risk of a vehicle fire.

Newmar is recalling 472 vehicles in relation to this issue.

Newmar will notify owners, and dealers will install a protective metal sheet on the top of the exterior fuel compartment. The repair will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on, or before, September 26, 2015. Owners may contact Newmar customer service at (574) 773-7791.
