Summary:
      Newmar Corporation is recalling certain model year 2013 Bay Star Sport, Ventana and Ventana LE and model year 2013-2014 Bay Star, Canyon Star and Dutch Star motorhomes. If the awning installation sequence was not completely followed, the awning motor may unknowingly become damaged.
Consequence:
      If motor damage occurs, it is possible that the awning can unfurl unexpectedly, either while the motorhome is at rest or while in transit, increasing the risk of personal injury or a vehicle crash.
Remedy:
      Newmar will notify owners and Dometic staff will replace the affected motors with a design that is not subject to an out-of-sequence installation error. The recall began on June 28, 2013.
