SUMMARY OF RECALL:
If the awning installation sequence was not completely followed, the awning motor may unknowingly become damaged. A damaged motor may lead to an unfurling of the awning.

CONSEQUENCE:
If motor damage occurs, it is possible that the awning can unfurl unexpectedly, either while the motorhome is at rest or while in transit, increasing the risk of personal injury or a vehicle crash.

REMEDY:
The RV manufacturers will notify owners and Dometic staff will replace the affected motors with a design that is not subject to an out-of-sequence installation error. Manufacturers have not yet provided a notification schedule.  Owners are being instructed not to drive their vehicle until repairs can be performed.

Below is a list of RVs subject to recall.
