Component: LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 432
Summary:
      Charmac Trailers is recalling certain model year 2006-2007 Cargo, Horse and Sports Trailers manufactured from January 2006 through December 2006 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:
      Charmac Trailers will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of November 2013. Owners may contact Charmac Trailers at 1-208-733-5241 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.
