NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 05V533000 Mfg's Report Date : OCT 27, 2005
Component: EQUIPMENT:RECREATIONAL VEHICLE:LPG LINES AND FITTINGS
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 381
Summary:
ON CERTAIN CLASS B MOTOR HOMES BUILT ON CHEVROLET CHASSIS AND EQUIPPED WITH PROPANE BBQ CONNECTION.

Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE BBQ HOSE CONNECTOR ASSEMBLY, CHECK FOR ANY WEAR, AND REPLACE UNITS. THE UNITS WILL BE RESTRAINED AND CLAMPS WILL BE ADDED TO LIMIT THE LENGTH OF THE FREE END OF THE HOSE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON NOVEMBER 28, 2005. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HOME AND PARK AT 888-762-3873.

Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY:FILLER PIPE AND CAP
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 404
Summary:
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: CLASS 'B' MOTOR HOMES BUILT ON DODGE 1500, 2500 AND 3500 VAN CHASSIS. THE FUELVENT HOSE FROM THE FUEL TANK TO THE FUEL FILL ENTRY MAY NOT BE VAPOR TIGHT DUE TO OVER TIGHTENING OF THE GEAR CLAMP AT THE CONNECTION OF THE PLASTIC VENT TANK OUTAGE TO THE RUBBER VENT HOSE. THIS CAN RESULT IN FUEL OR FUEL VAPOR LEAKING.
Consequence:
THIS CONDITION CAN CAUSE FUEL OR FUEL VAPOR LEAKING RESULTING IN A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD. ALSO THE ENGINE COULD STALL FROM LACK OF FUEL, RESULTING IN LOSS OF POWER BRAKING AND POWER STEERING CONTROL.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REMOVE THE GEAR CLAMP SECURING THE RUBBER VENT HOSE TO THE PLASTIC VENT TUBE, INSTALL A RIGID INSERT TUBE INTO THE PLASTIC VENT TUBE, AND REATTACH THE HOSE AND CLAMP. THE RIBERGLASS COVER IN THE RUNNING BOARD STORAGE COMPARTMENT MUST FIRST BE REMOVED FOR ACCESS.
