An RV manufacturer has announced a recall for vehicles with engine cooling issues.

Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Hurricane and Windsport motorhomes. In the affected vehicles, the vehicle exhaust is located near a storage compartment where heat may build-up, causing the compartment to melt.

Heat build-up in the vehicle storage compartment increases the risk of fire and injury to passengers.

About 385 motorhomes are impacted by this recall.

Thor Motor Coach will notify owners, and dealers will install a heat shield to prevent heat build-up in the storage compartment. The recall will begin in March 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Thor Motor Coach customer service at (877) 855-2867.
