Summary:
      Skyline Corporation "Skyline" is recalling certain model year 2006-2013 recreational vehicle travel trailers and fifth-wheel trailers manufactured January 1, 2006, through May, 31, 2013 and equipped with Fastec-brand door locks. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.
Consequence:
      If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the travel trailer at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle without using the emergency exit, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
      Skyline will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall began on April 7, 2014. Owners may contact Skyline at 1-800-755-6521 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.
