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.

Dometic Brisk-Air Air Conditioner

Dometic Brisk-Air Air Conditioner

ELKHART, Ind. – Dometic is issuing a consumer warning that its Brisk Air RV air conditioner and heat pump models appear to have been counterfeited by a Chinese company and are now being sold into the RV industry under the brand name Advent.

Brad Sargent, vice president of marketing at Dometic, said the Advent air conditioner “seems to be purposely made to look like our Brisk Air models at a glance in order to trick people into thinking it’s the same product.”
Dometic is evaluating its legal options against the Chinese company and the Advent product. In the meantime, Dometic encourages consumers to use caution before purchasing these products.
