Summary:
      ON CERTAIN MOTOR HOMES BUILT WITH DEWALT/POWER GEAR HYDRAULIC HOSES USED FOR THE SLIDE-OUT ROOMS AND LEVELING JACKS, THE CRIMPING PROCESS FOR ATTACHING THE HOSE FITTING TO THE END OF THE HYDRAULIC HOSE WAS PERFORMED IMPROPERLY.
Consequence:
      WHEN ONE OF THE IMPROPERLY CRIMPED HOSE ASSEMBLIES IS PLACED UNDER A HEAVY LOAD, HYDRAULIC FLUID COULD BE RELEASED IN A HIGH PRESSURE SPRAY CREATING A RISK OF FIRE.
Remedy:
      DEWALT/POWER GEAR WILL NOTIFY GULF STREAM CUSTOMERS AND WILL INSPECT AND REPLACE THE HOSE FITTING. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT GULF STREAM COACH AT 800-289-8787.
