Starcraft Bus is recalling certain model year 2006-2012 Allstar buses manufactured November 2006, through July 2012. The affected buses are equipped with a Ricon manufactured wheelchair lift which may have an optional armored pendant cable. The cable may have been installed such that it doesn't clear the wheelchair lift and without a protective cover, or a misinstalled protective cover.
If the cable does not clear the wheel chair lift it may contact the power lug and if it does not have a nonconductive cover, or it has an improperly installed non-conductive cover, then a short circuit may occur that could result in a fire.
Starcraft will notify owners and direct them to contact Ricon. Ricon will provide a supplemental cover kit with instructions, free of charge. The recall began during June 2013. Owners may contact Starcraft at 1-800-348-7440 or Ricon at 1-818-267-3000. Starcraft's recall campaign number is 12E-017.
