Recall Winnebago: Copper LPG Lines Could Leak

Winnebago Industries, Inc.


Winnebago Brave Years: 2000-2001 Winnebago Sunrise Years: 2000-2001 Winnebago Adventurer Years: 2000-2001 Winnebago Sun Cruiser Years: 2000-2001

Number Involved: 1,437

Dates of Manufacture: June 2000 - March 2001

Defect: On certain motor homes, the copper line supplying liquid propane gas (LPG) to the furnace may have been improperly clamped, which could cause the line to come in contact with a metal flange. If this happens, the copper line could be damaged and could develop a leak, which has the potential to ignite.

Remedy: Dealers will re-route the LPG hose. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on April 26, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Winnebago at 1-641-585-6939.
