Summary:
      Kibbi, LLC is recalling one model year 2013 Renegade KIT28TA trailer manufactured on April 12, 2013. Due to a design change in the power awning motor assembly, the motor assembly screws may unknowingly shear.
Consequence:
      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.
