Summary:
      Gulf Stream Coach, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2013 Canyon Trail, Sedona, Ridgeline, Kingsport, and Trail Master recreational vehicle trailers manufactured Febuary 13, 2013, through April 24, 2013. The vehicles are equipped with Weatherpro and 9100 series power awnings. Due to a design change in the power awning motor assembly, the motor assembly screws may unknowingly shear.

      Gulf Stream will notify owners and Dometic staff will replace the affected motors with motors of a different design. Gulf Stream has not yet provided a notification schedule.
