Recalled: 1998-2001 Jayco Eagle and Heritage

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) today released a list of auto safety recalls announced in November and December 2000 and urged consumers to have the problems fixed promptly Jayco, Inc.

Models: Jayco Eagle Years: 1998-2001 Jayco Heritage Years: 1998-2001

Number Involved: 10,956

Dates of Manufacture: May 1998 - June 2000

Defect: On certain folding campers, a flexible brake hose is not clamped in a position away from the tire, which can lead to chaffing of the hose causing a leak of hydraulic fluid. This could result in a loss of trailer brakes, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will add a clamp to the brake hose. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 9, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Jayco at 1-877-825-4782. [NHTSA Recall No. 00V382]
