Doubletree RV "Doubletree" is recalling certain model year 2006-2013 Select Suite, Tradition, Mobile Suite, and Elite Suite recreational trailers manufactured January 1, 2006, to April 25, 2013 and 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.
Doubletree will notify owners, and dealers will replace the cylinders, free of charge. The recall began December 29, 2014. Owners may contact Fastec directly at www.fastecindustrial.com or by calling toll free 1-800-837-2505, or Doubletree customer service at 1-260-562-1075.
