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.
Gulf Stream will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall began on December 20, 2013. Owners may contact Fastec at 1-800-837-2505 or Gulf Stream at 1-574-773-7761. Gulf Stream's recall number is 13FI-1013.
