Potential Number Of Units Affected : 38
      Knapheide Manufacturing Company "KMC" is recalling certain 2022-2023 GM 2500HD, 2022 RAM 3500, Ford F-250, F-350, F-550, and 2023 GM 3500 vehicles equipped with certain Warn Industries VR EVO winches with a wireless handheld remote. Water may enter the handheld remote control for the winch and cause circuit board corrosion, which can allow the winch to operate unintentionally.
      A winch that operates unintentionally increases the risk of injury.
      KMC will work with Warn Industries, Inc. to provide owners instructions on how to inspect the remote for corrosion and disable the wireless function by removing the battery pack from the remote. If corrosion or water intrusion is found when removing the battery pack owners should stop using the remote and contact WARN customer service for a replacement remote, free of charge. Once new parts are available, WARN will make a replacement water resistant remote available, free of charge. Owner notification letters were mailed October 13, 2023. Owners may contact KMC customer service at 217-222-7131.
