Summary:
      ON CERTAIN MOTOR HOMES, AN INCORRECT SCREW WAS USED TO INSTALL THE BLACK AND WHITE CRT BACK-UP MONITOR IN THE DASH. THE INCORRECT SCREWS ARE 1/4" LONGER THAN SPECIFIED AND MAY CONTACT A PC BOARD INSIDE THE MONITOR WHICH COULD POTENTIALLY HIT A HIGH VOLTAGE CIRCUIT ON THE PC BOARD OF APPROXIMATELY 10,000-13,000 VOLTS.
Consequence:
      IF THE SCREW MAKES CONTACT WITH THE HIGH VOLTAGE TRACER ON THE PC BOARD AND SOMEONE WOULD TOUCH THE SCREW HEAD WHILE THE POWER IS ON, AN ELECTRICAL SHOCK COULD OCCUR CAUSING INJURY.
Remedy:
      DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE BACK-UP MONITOR TO VERIFY THE OPERATION OF THE MONITOR FREE OF CHARGE. IF THE MONITOR IS OPERATING PROPERLY, THE REPAIR WILL CONSIST OF REPLACING THE INCORRECT SCREW WITH THE SPECIFIED SCREW AND TESTING FOR PROPER OPERATION. IF THE MONITOR IS NOT OPERATING PROPERLY ON INITIAL INSPECTION, THE MONITOR WILL BE REPLACED USING THE CORRECT SCREW. THE RECALL BEGAN ON FEBRUARY 9, 2007. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MONACO AT 877-332-9239.
