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.
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.
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. Owners may contact Newmar at 1-574-773-7791 or Dometic at 1-888-447-0003 for more information. Owners are being instructed not to drive their vehicle until repairs can be performed.
