    2012 HOLIDAY RAMBLER ALUMA-LITE
    NHTSA Campaign ID:LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES
    Manufacturer:Monaco RV, LLC
    Manufacture Dates:10/19/2007 - 03/15/2012
    Potential Units Affected:3175

    Defect Description:

    Monaco RV, LLC (Monaco) is recalling certain model year 2008-2013 recreational vehicles equipped with Fastec-brand door locks. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.

    Consequence:

    If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the travel trailer at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle without using the emergency exit, increasing the risk of injury.

    Action:

    Monaco will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall began on February 17, 2014. Owners may contact Monaco at 1-877-466-6226 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.

These vehicles were manufactured October 12, 2009, through March 15, 2013 and have the water tanks mounted under the floor within enclosed underbellies. The water tank mounting system may fail.

    Consequence:

    If the mounting system fails, the water tank may separate from the vehicle and become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

    Action:

    Monaco RV, LLC will notify owners and dealers will install a cross brace between the water tank and the mounting brackets, free of charge. The recall began on July 31, 2013. Monaco's recall number is 13001MRV. Owners may contact Monaco at 1-877-466-6226.

    Potential Units Affected:2123

    Defect Description:

    Allied Recreation Group, Inc. (ARG) is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 Holiday Rambler Admiral, 2009-2014 Holiday Rambler Ambassador, 2010 Holiday Rambler Arista, 2010-2014 Holiday Rambler Endeavor, 2009-2011 Holiday Rambler Neptune, 2011-2014 Holiday Rambler Vacationer, 2009-2011 Monaco Cayman, 2010-2014 Monaco Diplomat, 2014 Monaco Dynasty, 2009-2014 Monaco Knight, 2012-2013 Monaco LaPalma, 2009-2013 Monaco Monarch, 2009-2011 Monaco Riptide, 2008 Safari Passage, and 2008 Safari Simba motorhomes. The affected vehicles are equipped with certain Lippert-brand Coachstep Double Electric Steps. These steps use a bolt to attach the fan gear assembly to the steps. This bolt may fracture allowing the fan gear to disengage from the steps. As a result, the steps may not remain in the expected position and may be unstable.

    Consequence:

    Unstable entry and exit steps increase the risk of injury.

    Action:

    ARG will notify owners and dealers will install a retainer bracket to reinforce the operating mechanism, free of charge. The recall began on February 12, 2016. Owners may contact ARG customer service number at 1-800-509-3417. ARG's number for this recall is 151216REV.

    Consequence:

    In the event of a fire, if the fire extinguisher does not function properly, it can increase the risk of injury.

    Action:

    REV will notify owners, and instruct them to contact Kidde for a replacement fire extinguisher, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 18, 2018.

    Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling various Dodge, Chrysler, and RAM vehicles equipped with Kidde Plastic-Handle or Push Button 'Pindicator' Fire Extinguishers. A list of the affected trailer models is available at: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2017/RMISC-17V824-0103.pdf. These extinguishers may become clogged, preventing the extinguisher from discharging as expected or requiring excessive force to activate the extinguisher. Additionally, in certain models, the nozzle may detach from the valve assembly with enough force that it could cause injury and also render the product inoperable. For a full list of the affected fire extinguisher models visit: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2017/RMISC-17E062-5427.pdf

    Consequence:

    If the fire extinguisher does not function properly, it can increase the risk of injury in the event of a fire.

    Action:

    Chrysler will notify owners instructing them to contact Kidde for a replacement fire extinguisher, free of charge. The recall began February 14, 2018.

    Defect Description:

    Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 Ram 1500 trucks manufactured from February 27, 2008, through June 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through October 20, 2011; model year 2009-2011 Dodge Dakota trucks manufactured from February 27, 2007, through June 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through September 30, 2011; model year 2009 Chrysler Aspen trucks manufactured from January 3, 2008, through December 18, 2008; and model year 2009 Dodge Durango trucks manufactured from January 3, 2008, through December 18, 2008. The rear axle pinion nut may loosen due to an undersized pinion spline that can allow relative motion between the nut and companion flange.

    Consequence:

    If the rear axle pinion nut loosens, the axle can lock up and cause a loss of vehicle control and/or a vehicle crash with little warning.

    Action:

    On November 7, 2013 Chrysler notified owners that dealers would install a pinion nut retainer, free of charge. In July 2015, and under a consent order with NHTSA, the company agreed to offer owners three options for remedying their vehicles: perform the original remedy, offer to repurchase the vehicle at the fair market value plus 10%, or offer an additional incentive offer towards the purchase of a new Dodge, Jeep, Chrysler, or Fiat vehicle.

Pushing the brake pedal for prolonged periods when the vehicle is running and in PARK may cause the Brake Transmission Shift Interlock (BTSI) pin to stick in the open position. With the pin in the open position, the transmission can be shifted out of PARK into any gear without pushing the brake pedal or having the key in the ignition.

    Consequence:

    Being able to shift the transmission without pushing the brake pedal and/or without a key in the ignition can increase the risk of an unintended vehicle rollaway that may result in personal injury or a crash.

    Action:

    Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will update the vehicle software, inspect the BTSI, and, as necessary, replace it. The recall began February 26, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is T79.

    Consequence:

    Being able to shift the transmission without pushing the brake pedal and/or without a key in the ignition can increase the risk of an unintended vehicle rollaway that may result in personal injury or a crash.

    Action:

    Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will update the vehicle software, inspect the BTSI, and, as necessary, replace it. The recall began February 26, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is T79.
