Safety concerns are prompting another Indiana recreational vehicle manufacturer to remove a line of vehicles from the road.

Starcraft RV, of Middlebury, IN, is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Launch Ultra Lite vehicles. The vehicles in question were manufactured between June 17, 2014, and July 23, 2015. The furnaces equipped on the trailers may not have been secured properly and could separate from the exhaust.

Hazardous exhaust fumes could be released into the cabin area, sickening and injuring any occupants. Starcraft is recalling about 800 vehicles.

Starcraft will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the furnace, and if necessary secure the furnace to the floor platform, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Starcraft customer service at (800) 945-4787.
