LP Gas

Trailer recall cites unprotected propane lines

Starcraft RV is recalling certain model year 2016 Autumn Ridge trailers due to propane lines and wires routed under the travel trailer that may be inadequately protected from road debris, according to information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Road debris may damage the LP gas lines and electrical wires, increasing the risk of a propane leak and an electrical short and potentially causing a fire. The trailer model, 339BHTS, was manufactured between March 27 and Sept. 22, and 36 units are potentially affected by the recall. The remedy for the recall is still under development, the recall notice states, and the manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners of the trailer may contact Starcraft customer service and note the recall number (9902266), the notice states.
