Potential Units Affected:5

Defect Description:

REV Recreation Group (REV) is recalling certain 2019 Fleetwood Flair and Holiday Rambler Admiral, model 28A, Class A motorhomes.

Consequence:

The damaged wiring could cause an electrical short, increasing the risk of a fire.

Action:

REV has repaired all of the affected Class A motorhomes while they were in dealer inventory by re-routing the wire harness to ensure that the flexible-sheathed SJO cable is routed through the traveling and stationary bed platform sections in the slide-out area, free of charge. All vehicles were repaired as of July 3, 2018. Owners may contact REV customer service at 1-800-509-3417. REV's number for this recall is 180618REV.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the software, and perform a software flash on the engine or powertrain control module, free of charge. The recall began June 4, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Note: Owners are advised to stop using cruise control until the software update has been performed.
