Summary:
      Erwin Hymer Group North America, Inc. "Erwin Hymer" is recalling certain 2016-2018 Hymer Aktiv recreational vehicles, built on RAM Promaster chassis and equipped with a Continental kit "CK". The exhaust pipe may melt the rear bumper cover and the vehicle wiring in that area.
Consequence:
      The exhaust heat can melt the taillight wiring, causing the tail light not to function, increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, the exhaust heat can burn anyone that contacts the bumper cover immediately after the vehicle has been operated.
Remedy:
      Erwin Hymer has notified owners, and dealers will install a new tailpipe that redirects the exhaust down, away from the bumper area, free of charge. The recall began on September 1, 2017. Owners may contact Erwin Hymer customer service at 1-844-464-3735.
