Winnebago Recalls 1,800 Late-Model Travel Trailers and Motorhomes
Winnebago announced two recalls affecting certain models of travel trailers and motorhomes.
An axle defect resulted in a recall of more than 700 travel trailers, while more than 1,100 motorhomes are affected by a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) problem.
In affected model year 2013 – 2015 Winnebago Minnie 2201DS and 2450BHS, and Sunnybrook Remington 2200DS and 2451BHS travel trailers, the axle may contact the fitting for the propane pipe.
This could cause the fitting to crack or break, potentially causing a propane leak, increasing the risk of a fire.
Affected owners will be contacted by Winnebago Towable, but company has not yet provided a notification schedule. The remedy for the recall is still under development. For more information owners can contact Winnebago Towable customer service at (574) 825-5250.
Winnebago is also recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Winnebago Trend, Travato, and Itasca Viva motorhomes because the TPMS may fail to learn the locations of the individual sensors while the vehicle is being driven.
This will cause the low tire pressure warning light to illuminate even with the correct tire pressure. If one of the tires does lose pressure, the driver would not be notified of the change, increasing the risk of a flat tire.
Affected owners will be contacted by Chrysler whose dealers will updated the TPMS software free of charge. Winnebago has not yet provided a notification schedule. For more information, owners can contact Winnebago customer service at (800) 537-1885.
