Pleasant Valley Teardrop Trailers LLC "Pleasant Valley" is recalling certain model year 2006-2013 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.
Pleasant Valley will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Pleasant Valley at 1-330-852-4811 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.
