Coachmen is recalling 13,662 fifth wheel and travel trailers and motorhomes
equipped with glass shower doors.
When pressure is applied to the towel bar on the
glass shower door, the edge of the bar may contact the glass. Glass breakage may occur
which could cause personal injury. Owners will be provided with new mounting hardware for
the towel bar and installation instructions. If an owner is not comfortable replacing the
hardware, a dealer will install the hardware at no cost. The recall is expected to begin
during January 2009. Owners may contact Coachmen at (574) 825-5821. 08V-639

Dealers will add a bracket to support the engine compartment silencer pad adjacent to the
EGR cooler. The recall is expected to begin in January 2009. Owners may contact Chrysler at
(800) 853-1403. 08V-641 Warrior Industries is recalling 21 model year

secondary burn housing, a thermal fuse, and a melt fuse free of charge. Dometic has

Keystone is recalling 10 MY 2008 Laredo fifth-wheel travel trailers for failing to
comply with the requirements of Part 567, “Certification.”
The Federal
identification label and tire and loading information label does not contain the correct
gross axle weight rating (GAWR). The label indicates a capacity of 6,000 lbs, but instead
should read 5,080 lbs. Also the tire size and maximum inflation pressure is listed at
235/80/R16E at 80 psi and it should be 225/75/R15D at 65 psi maximum inflation. Loading the
vehicle beyond the actual GAWR could result in poor vehicle handling characteristics,
increasing the risk of a crash. Owners will be provided with corrected labels and
installation instructions. If an owner desires, they can have their dealer replace the tags
for them. The recall is expected to begin during January 2009. Owners may contact Keystone
at (866) 425-4369. 08V-685
