Winnebago Industries, Inc.

Models:

Winnebago Minnie Winnie Year: 2001 Winnebago Sundancer Year: 2001

Number Involved: 127

Dates of Manufacture: August 2000 - January 2001

Defect: These motor homes have slide out wall units in which the hose supplying liquid propane gas (LPG) to the refrigerator in the slideout of the unit did not have adequate hose Aloop@ at the extension mechanism. The insufficient amount of hose in this loop could cause damage to the hose when the room is retracted. The hose could develop a leak which has the potential to result in fire.

Remedy: Dealers will re-route the LPG hose. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on March 9, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Winnebago at 1-641-585-6939.
