Recall Summary: Allied Recreation Group, Inc. (ARG) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Fleetwood Excursion vehicles manufactured July 16, 2013, to November 5, 2014, and 2015 Holiday Rambler Ambassador vehicles manufactured August 7, 2014, to October 23, 2014. On the affected vehicles, a seat pedestal mounting support bracket may not have been installed according to engineering specifications. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) No. 207, "Seating Systems," and No. 210 "Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages."
Hazard: An incorrectly installed seat pedestal can cause the seat to detach from the floor, failing to retrain the occupant and increasing the risk of occupant injury in the event of a vehicle crash.
Remedy: ARG will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and install a new mounting bracket hardware if necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 18, 2014. Owners may contact ARG customer service at 1-800-509-3417. ARG's number for this recall is 141117ARG.
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.

2013-11-25 (Published by NHTSA on 2013-12-18)
Recall Summary: Fleetwood RV, Inc. (Fleetwood) is recalling certain model year 2014 model American Eagle, American Heritage, American Revolution, American Tradition, Bounder, Bounder Classic, Discovery, Excursion, Expedition, Providence, South Wind, Storm, Terra, Terra SE, Jamboree Searcher, Jamboree Sport, Tioga Montara, and Tioga Ranger recreational vehicles equipped with IMMI-brand L9 seat belt assemblies. When the button is pressed to release the seat belt, the latch plate can become partially engaged with the buckle, preventing the seat belt from unlatching. Thus, this equipment fails to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies."
Hazard: If the seat belt buckle stays latched when the button is pressed, there is an increased risk of injury in an emergency, or the seat belt may not properly release in the event of an accident.
Remedy: Fleetwood will notify owners and dealers will inspect and replace the seat belt buckle, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2013. Owners may contact Fleetwood at 1-800-322-8216. Fleetwood's recall number 131112FRV.
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.

The vehicles are equipped with Weatherpro and 9100 series power awnings. Due to a design change in the power awning motor assembly, the motor assembly screws may unknowingly shear.
Hazard: If the motor assembly screws shear, it is possible that the awning can unfurl unexpectedly, either while the vehicle is at rest or while in transit, increasing the risk of personal injury or a vehicle crash.
Remedy: Fleetwood RV 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.

Recall Summary: Fleetwood RV is recalling certain model year 2013 Excursion motor homes manufactured from March 27, 2012, through July 24, 2012.
