Thor Motor Coach recalls 860 RVs for propane leak

WASHINGTON — Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2018 Four Winds, Chateau and Freedom Elite recreational vehicles. The liquid propane hose may sag and become pinched between the frame and the leaf spring u-bolts, potentially damaging the hose and causing a propane leak.


TMC will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the LP hose routing and install additional P-clamps or relocate the P-clamps to properly secure the hose, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Oct. 23. Owners may contact TMC customer service at 1.877.500.1020. TMC’s number for this recall is RC000144.

    Too many recall by all builders for things that should have never been improperly designed and/or caught at the 1st install. Of course, nothing will slow the line no matter how wrong or dangerous to the consumer, just issue a recall which at the very least is an inconvenience.
