Dodgen Industries, Inc. "Dodgen" is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Dodgen Mobile Tech. Mobility RV's manufactured January 1, 2006, to November 24, 2014, equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts manufactured by Ricon Corporation. The platform side plate of the affected wheelchair lifts may crack.
If the platform side plates crack, the lift platform can separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle's lift door. When the doors are opened, the platform may fall out, increasing the risk of injury to the lift operator.
Dodgen will notify owners to take their RV's to a Ricon dealer or service center who will install supplemental platform support bumpers. Any platform that has already started cracking will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began on October 28, 2015. Owners may contact Dodgen customer service at 1-515-332-3755, or Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884.
