  • Awning Recall and Issues

    DRV Suites is recalling 129 model year 2014 Tradition, Mobile Suite, Mobile Suite Select, and Elite Suite recreational vehicles and travel trailers manufactured Dec. 10, 2012, through July 30, 2013. Due to a design change in the Dometic-brand power awning motor assembly, the motor assembly screws may unknowingly shear. If the motor assembly screws shear, it is possible that the awning can unfurl unexpectedly, either while the vehicle is at rest or while in transit, increasing the risk of personal injury or a vehicle crash. DRV will notify owners, and Dometic staff will replace the affected motor with one of a different design. The recall is expected to begin by early Sept. 2013. Owners may contact DRV at 260-562-1075 or Dometic at 888-447-0003 for more information. Owners are being instructed not to drive their vehicle until repairs can be performed.
