Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s):
FLEETWOOD / EXCURSION 2013
Manufacturer: FLEETWOOD RV, INC. Mfr’s Report Date: AUG 16, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V412000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: EQUIPMENT
Potential Number of Units Affected: 74
Summary: 
Fleetwood RV is recalling certain model year 2013 Excursion motor homes manufactured from March 27, 2012, through July 24, 2012. A threaded fastener installed on the turn shaft of the slide-out mechanism may come into contact with a portion of the diesel fuel fill hose while the turn shaft is rotating. If the fastener makes contact with the fuel fill hose, there is a possibility that it will abrade the fuel fill hose and cause a leak.
Consequence: 
Leaking fuel, in the presence of an ignition source, increases the risk of a fire.
Remedy: 
Fleetwood RV will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, as necessary, shorten the threaded fastener to achieve clearance of the fuel line free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during August 2012. Owners may contact Fleetwood RV owner relations at 1-800-509-3418.
Notes:
Fleetwood RV’s safety recall number is 120813FRV. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
