Starcraft recalls 38 RVs to fix non-grounded outlet

WASHINGTON — Starcraft RV is recalling 38 Launch Outfitter 24RLS (UT) travel trailers equipped with the sleeper/tri-fold sofa or theater seating. The electrical outlet between the sleeper/tri-fold sofa seating does not have ground fault circuit interrupter protection, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

An electrical outlet that is not GFCI protected near a sink may increase the risk of an electrical shock, NHTSA explained.

Remedy

Starcraft will notify owners, and dealers will replace the outlet with a GFCI protected outlet, free of charge. The recall began June 29. Owners may contact Starcraft customer service at 800.945.4787. Starcraft’s number for this recall is 9902356.
