Component: EQUIPMENT
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 4
      Intech Trailers "Intech"is recalling certain model year 2013 custom trailers manufactured March 2013 through April 2013. Due to a design change in the Dometic-brand power awning motor assembly, the motor assembly screws may unknowingly shear.
      If the motor assembly screws shear, it is possible that the awning can unfurl unexpectedly, either while the vehicle is at rest or while in transit, increasing the risk of personal injury or a vehicle crash.
      Intech will notify owners and Intech or Dometic will replace the affected motors with one of a different design, free of charge. The recall began on May 3, 2013. Owners may contact Intech Trailers at 1-574-773-9536 or Dometic at 1-888-447-0003 for more information. Owners are being instructed not to drive their vehicle until repairs can be performed.
