Sunset Park & RV, Inc., has recalled the 2014 model EZ Traveler (21LE) travel trailer that was manufactured on February 19, 2013, due to unexpected unfolding of the awning. The motor assembly screws may unknowingly shear due to a design change in the power awning motor assembly. If these screws shear, it is possible that the awning can unfold unexpectedly while the vehicle is at rest or even while the vehicle is moving down the road. This potential for the awning to suddenly unfold substantially increases the risk of personal injury or a vehicle crash. We wrote in more detail on this recall another section of this issue.
Sunset Park & RV, Inc. has notified the owners of the particular model, and Dometic staff will replace the affected motor with one of a different design. This recall began in early September.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit online at www.safercar.gov.
