Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain model year 2018 Four Winds, Chateau, and Freedom Elite recreational vehicles.

What's the problem?

The liquid propane hose on the affected vehicles may sag and become pinched between the frame and the leaf spring u-bolts, potentially damaging the hose and causing a propane leak.

A propane fuel leak may increase the risk of a fire.

Approximately 860 Four Winds, Chateau, and Freedom Elite recreational vehicles are included in this recall.

What happens next?

Thor Motor Coach will notify owners of the recalled vehicles beginning in mid-October 2017. Dealers will then inspect the liquid propane hose routing and install additional P-clamps or relocate the P-clamps to properly secure the hose. These repairs will be completed free of charge to vehicle owners.
