Jayco has announced a recall for RVs with a potentially malfunctioning electrical system.

The motorhome manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2016 Eagle Half Ton fifth wheels and Eagle travel trailers. In the affected trailers, the positive cable (B+) connecting the battery box to the roof-mounted solar panel preparation package may not be protected by a circuit breaker.

Without circuit protection, the wire may short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire.

Jayco is including about 2,100 vehicles in its recall.

The company will notify owners, and dealers will tie the unprotected circuit into a 30amp circuit breaker, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in March 2016.

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