Northwood Manufacturing, Inc. "Northwood" is recalling certain model year 2007-2014 Arctic Fox, Nash, and Desert Fox, model year 2011-2012 Fox Creek and model year 2011-2014 Fox Mountain, Snow River and Wolf Creek trailers, fifth wheels, toy haulers and pickup campers equipped with Fastec-brand door locks. 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.
Northwood will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall began on December 4, 2013. Owners may contact Northwood Manufacturing at 1-541-962-6274 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.
