Manufacturer : HOME & PARK MOTORHOMES

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. A RUBBER HOSE IS CONNECTED TO THE PROPANE REGULATOR AT ONE END AND HAS A BRASS SHUTOFF VALVE CONNECTOR ON THE OTHER "FREE END." THE CLAMP USED FOR HOLDING THE BRASS BBQ SHUTOFF VALVE IS NOT INSERTED PROPERLY INTO ITS HOLDING CLAMP.
Consequence:
SINCE THE RESTRAINING CLAMP IS MISSING, THE HOSE CAN BOUNCE UP AND DOWN. AS THE VEHICLE IS DRIVEN, THE CONNECTOR CAN FALL TO THE GROUND DRAGGING ONTO THE PAVEMENT AND COULD WEAR A HOLE THROUGH THE HOSE. PROPANE CAN LEAK OUT CREATING THE POTENTIAL FOR A FIRE.
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.

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 06V160000 Mfg's Report Date : MAY 03, 2006
Component: EQUIPMENT:OTHER:LABELS
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 736
Summary:
ON CERTAIN MOTOR HOMES BUILT ON CHEVROLET CHASSIS AND EQUIPPED WITH A DECORATIVE DASH TRIM KIT, THE ADHESIVE BACKED SYNTHETIC TRIM IS ATTACHED TO THE DASH, ENGINE COVER, DOOR PANEL AND THE CHEVROLET "BOW TIE" DECAL IS ATTACHED TO THE STEERING WHEEL (DIRECTLY OVER THE EXISTING BOW TIE IMPRESSION). THIS DECAL COULD AFFECT THE DEPLOYMENT OF THE AIR BAG SAFETY RESTRAINT BUILT INTO THE STEERING WHEEL.
Consequence:
IN THE EVENT OF A VEHICLE CRASH IN WHICH THE DRIVER SIDE AIR BAG IS DEPLOYED, THE RESULTING FUNCTIONALITY OF THE AIR BAG IS UNCERTAIN, WHICH CAN INCREASE THE RISK OF INJURY TO VEHICLE OCCUPANTS.
Remedy:
OWNERS WILL BE INSTRUCTED TO REMOVE THE STEERING WHEEL DECAL. THE RECALL BEGAN ON MAY 30, 2006. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HOME AND PARK AT 1-800-663-0066.

Component: SUSPENSION:REAR:AXLE:SPINDLE
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 51
Summary:
ON CERTAIN CLASS B MOTOR HOMES BUILT ON CHEVROLET CHASSIS, WHEN THE REAR AXLE LIFT KIT WAS INSTALLED, THE U-BOLT NUTS WERE NOT TIGHTENED PROPERLY.
Consequence:
A LOOSE REAR AXLE CAN CREATE A SLUGGISH DRIVING FEELING, REAR BOUNCING AND LOUD BANGING NOISE, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT AND RETIGHTEN THE U-BOLTS FREEE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON MARCH 30, 2006. OWNERS MAY CONTACT ROADTREK 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.
Notes:
OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN JUNE 24, 1998. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR MOTOR HOMES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT HOME & PARK AT 1-888-ROADTREK (1-888-762-3873).

Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY:FILLER PIPE AND CAP
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 606
Summary:
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: CLASS B MOTOR HOMES BUILT ON DODGE 3500 OR 2500 VAN CHASSIS. THE GENERATOR FUEL PICKUP FITTING WAS SELF TAPPED INTO A DRILLED HOLE BESIDE THE FUEL SENDING UNIT ON TOP OF THE PLASTIC FUEL TANK. SEALANT WAS USED ON THE THREAD BEFORE THE FITTING WAS SCREWED INTO THE TANK. ON SOME VEHICLES, THE FUEL PICKUP FITTING WAS NOT SEALED PROPERLY AGAINST THE TANK WALL, AND WHEN THE TANK IS FULL, FUEL OR FUEL VAPORS CAN LEAK OUT.
Consequence:
IN A CRASH, FUEL OR FUEL VAPORS CAN LEAK WHEN THE TANK IS FULL, INCREASING THE RISK OF A FIRE.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE SELF TAPPING FUEL PICKUP WITH A NEW ONE WITH REGULAR THREAD FITTING SECURED TO THE TANK WITH A LOCK NUT INSIDE THE TANK.
Notes:

Component: VISIBILITY:WINDSHIELD
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 711
Summary:
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: MOTOR HOMES BUILT ON DODGE 2500/3500 VAN CHASSIS AND ON CHEVROLET G-CUT AWAY VAN CHASSIS. THESE MOTOR HOMES WERE BUILT USING FRAMELESS WINDOWS. SOME OF THESE WINDOWS MAY HAVE NOT BONDED CORRECTLY.
Consequence:
WHEN THE WINDOWS ARE OPENED/CLOSED, OR WHEN LITTLE PRESSURE IS APPLIED TO THE VENT GLASS, THE BONDING CAN GIVE UP PRODUCING A DELAMINATION BETWEEN VENT GLASS AND ALUMINUM.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE AFFECTED WINDOWS WITH NEW ONES.

Potential Number Of Units Affected : 813
Summary:
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: CLASS B MOTOR HOMES BUILT ON CHEVROLET G-CUT AWAY VAN CHASSIS EQUIPPED WITH AN AFTER-MARKET GASOLINE TANK MANUFACTURED BY TRANSFER FLOW INC. OF CALIFORNIA. THE TANK INCORPORATES A ROLLOVER VALVE AND A 5/8" RUBBER VENT HOSE EXTENDING FROM THE TOP OF THE TANK. IT IS POSSIBLE, WITH THE MOUNTING OF THE FIBERGLASS BODY, THE VENT HOSE CAN BE CHAFFED FROM THE FIBERGLASS BODY UNDERSIDE.
Consequence:
THIS COULD CAUSE A FUEL VAPOR LEAK WHICH COULD LEAD TO A FIRE OR EXPLOSION.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL LOWER THE GASOLINE TANK TO INSTALL A SPACER SHIM. THIS SPACER PROVIDES THE NECESSARY CLEARANCE FOR THE VENT HOSE FROM THE VEHICLE UNDERSIDE.

Component: PARKING BRAKE:CONVENTIONAL:MECHANICAL:LINKAGE AND CABLE
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 271
Summary:
THE PARKING BRAKE CABLE IS ROUTED TO THE RIGHT REAR WHEEL CAUSING IT TO CROSS AND CONTACT THE STEEL BRAKE LINE. THIS CAN CAUSE THE ABRASION AND RUPTURE OF THE STEEL BRAKE LINE RESULTING IN A LOSS OF BRAKE FLUID.
Consequence:
LOSS OF BRAKE FLUID DUE TO THE RUPTURE OF THE STEEL BRAKE LINE CAUSES LOSS OF REAR BRAKING CAPABILITY WHICH CAN RESULT IN EXTENDED STOPPING DISTANCES AND CAN CAUSE AN ACCIDENT.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REROUTE THE PARKING BRAKE CABLE AWAY FROM THE STEEL BRAKE LINE. THE STEEL BRAKE LINE WILL BE REPLACED IF ABRASION OR WEAR IS EVIDENT.

Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:DELIVERY:HOSES, LINES/PIPING, AND FITTINGS
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 125
Summary:
ON CERTAIN MOTOR HOMES BUILT ON CHEVROLET G-VAN CHASSIS, THE CHASSIS FUEL RETURN LINE, WHICH IS TAPPED TO SUPPLY FUEL TO THE GENERATOR, HAS BEEN FOUND TO HAVE PRESSURES THAT EXCEED THE MAXIMUM ALLOWED BY THE GENERATOR MANUFACTURER. AS A RESULT, IF THE GENERATOR IS OPERATED AT THE SAME TIME THE CHASSIS ENGINE IS RUNNING, EXCESS FUEL COULD BE DELIVERED TO THE GENERATOR, CREATING A POTENTIAL FOR A GENERATOR STALL AND POSSIBLE FUEL SPILL.
Consequence:
IN THE EVENT OF A FUEL SPILL, A FIRE COULD OCCUR.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSTALL AN APPROVED KIT THAT DRAWS THE GENERATOR FUEL SUPPLY DIRECTLY FROM THE FUEL TANK. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING MARCH OR APRIL 2003.
