Winnebago recalls 1,058 to move propane hose

WASHINGTON — Winnebago Industries is recalling 1,058 2016-2017 Travato recreation vehicles, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The liquid propane (LP) hose may contact the emergency brake cable, potentially damaging it and causing it to leak propane. A propane leak can increase the risk of a fire or an explosion, NHTSA reported.

Remedy

Winnebago will notify owners and dealers will inspect the vehicles, repositioning and securing the LP hose to avoid contact with the brake cable, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Winnebago customer service at 800.537.1885.
