Component: EQUIPMENT:RECREATIONAL VEHICLE:LPG WATER HEATER

Summary:
      ON CERTAIN MOTOR HOMES MANUFACTURED WITH OPTIONAL AQUA HOT HYDRONIC HEATERS, THE EXHAUST TERMINATION FOR THE HEATER WAS LOCATED UNDER THE BEDROOM SLIDE OUT, WHEN IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN PLACED BEYOND THE PERIPHERY OF THE VEHICLE.
Consequence:
      THIS MAKES IT POSSIBLE FOR FUMES TO ENTER THE COACH AND POSSIBLY ALLOW CARBON MONOXIDE FUMES TO VENT INTO THE MOTOR HOME, WHICH COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH TO THE PASSENGERS.
Remedy:
      FOR THE 2003 MOTOR HOMES, DEALERS WILL USE THE EXISTING PIPE FROM THE AQUA HOT HYDRONIC HEATER, AND REPAIR IT SO THAT THE END TERMINATION WILL BE TO THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE MOTOR HOME. FOR THE 2004 AND 2005 MOTOR HOMES, DEALERS WILL ADD AN EXHAUST PIPE TO THE EXISTING EXHAUST SYSTEM FROM THE AQUA HOT HYDRONIC HEATER. THE ADDITIONAL PIPE WILL BE INSTALLED SO THAT THE END TERMINATION WILL ALSO BE TO THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE MOTOR HOME. THE RECALL BEGAN ON OCTOBER 27, 2004.
