Jayco recalls 49 RVs for incorrect cargo capacity information

WASHINGTON — Jayco, Inc. is recalling certain 2018-2019 Jayco Alante, Precept, Seneca, Redhawk, and Melbourne motorhomes. The Cargo Carrying Capacity (CCC) label incorrectly overstates the cargo capacity, potentially causing the vehicle to be overloaded. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 120, “Wheels and Rims – Other than Passenger Cars.”

Remedy

Jayco will notify owners, and will provided a corrected CCC label, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 30, 2018. Owners may contact Jayco customer service at 1-800-517-9137. Jayco’s number for this recall is 9903405.
