Jayco recalls 389 motorhomes to fix seat wiring

(Sept. 29, 2014) -- Due to the routing and inadequate protection of the wiring for the driver's and passenger's electric seats, the wires may get damaged by the seats moving up and down, and back and forth. Damaged wires may short, increasing the risk of a fire, the agency noted.

WASHINGTON — Jayco is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Precept motorhomes manufactured between Jan. 3, 2013, to July 14, 2014, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported today.

Due to the routing and inadequate protection of the wiring for the driver’s and passenger’s electric seats, the wires may get damaged by the seats moving up and down, and back and forth. Damaged wires may short, increasing the risk of a fire, the agency noted.

Jayco will notify owners, and dealers will reroute the electric seat wires and install an additional 10 amp circuit breaker, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September.

Owners may contact Jayco customer service at 800.283.8267.
