Recall Summary: Aluminum Trailer Company (ATC) is recalling certain model year 2008-2013 Quest, RSX, and Raven trailers manufactured January 2008 through April 2013 and equipped with Fastec-brand door locks. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.
Hazard: If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the travel trailer at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle without using the emergency exit, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy: ATC will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 30, 2013. Owners may contact ATC at 1-574-773-2440 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
