Jayco has announced a recall for RVs due to a safety hazard.

The manufacturer is recalling certain 2016 Jay Flight SLX recreational trailers. The bolts that secure the propane tank to the trailer's A-frame may be missing lock washers, allowing the propane tank to loosen and detach from the vehicle.

If the propane tank detaches from the trailer, there is an increased risk of a crash.

The company believes that about 240 trailers are impacted by this issue.

Jayco has notified owners, and dealers will install the lock washers to the two bolts that secure the propane tank to the A-frame, free of charge. The recall began on May 17, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Jayco customer service at (800) 283-8267.
