A fire risk has prompted a recall from one recreational vehicle manufacturer.

Winnebago Industries, Inc. announced this week that it would be recalling certain model year 2013-2016 Winnebago Era, Travato, View, Trend, Via, Journey, and Tour motorhomes and Itasca Navion, Viva, Reyo, Meridian, and Elipse motorhomes. In the affected vehicles, the high pressure liquid propane (LP) hose may harden and result in an LP leak at the crimp fitting.

An LP leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.

Winnebago believes that almost 9,000 recreational vehicles could be affected by this defect.

Winnebago will notify owners, and dealers will replace the LP hose, free of charge. However remedy parts are not currently available, so the notification schedule is pending.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact Winnebago customer service at (641) 585-3535.
