Summary:
      ON CERTAIN REAR DIESEL MOTOR HOMES EQUIPPED WITH OPTIONAL GAS GENERATORS, THE GENERATOR FUEL FILL GAS CAP PROVIDED WITH THE UNIT MAY NOT COMPLETELY SEAL AGAINST THE RIM OF THE FILL TUBE.
Consequence:
      THIS COULD ALLOW ANY GAS THAT IS SPLASHED AGAINST THE CAP DURING VEHICLE OPERATION, SUDDEN STOPS, OR TURNS, OR A CRASH, TO LEAK OUT. IF GAS IS ALLOWED TO LEAK OUT THROUGH THE UNSEALED CAP/FILL CONNECTION, THE POTENTIAL FOR A FIRE EXISTS.
Remedy:
      DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE GENERATOR FUEL FILL TUBE AND CAP ASSEMBLY. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN JANUARY 23, 2002. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT COACHMEN AT 1-800-453-6064.
