Columbia Northwest, Inc. "Columbia" is recalling certain model year 2006-2013 Aliner travel trailers, manufactured January 1, 2006, through April 25, 2013, and equipped with a Fastec-brand door lock. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.
If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the travel trailer at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle without using the emergency exit, increasing the risk of injury.
Columbia will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall began on December 26, 2013. Owners may contact Columbia at 1-724-423-7440 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.
