Issue

On certain motorhomes, the door lock actuators on the baggage doors could malfunction and overheat if the battery voltage drops below 9.5 volts. This could cause melting of the actuator and the inner door material, increasing the risk of fire causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will install a new low voltage disconnect module and wire harness. Note: This recall supersedes recall 2015-562. Vehicles repaired as part of the previous recall will require re-inspection and repair.
