Adventurer LP recalls truck campers for Fastec door lock

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Adventurer LP is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 truck campers manufactured Oct. 2009 through March 2012 and equipped with a Fastec-brand door lock. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.

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.

Adventurer LP will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Adventurer LP at 1.505.895.7064 or Fastec at 1.800.837.2505.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1.888.327.4236 (TTY 1.800.424.9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
