  • Jayco is recalling 998 model year 2018 Jayco Alantes and model year 2018-2019 Jayco Precepts. The windshield wiper system motor on these vehicles may fail when being operated in heavy snow or ice situations, thereby reducing driver visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Jayco is recalling 610 model year 2018 Jayco Eagle HT fifth wheel trailers equipped with certain 16K rotational rubber pin boxes. The spindle placement in the pin box may be incorrect, causing the bearing to be loose. Loose bearings could cause the spindle to fail, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Keystone RV Company is recalling 156 model year 2016-2017 Crossroads Redwood travel trailers. The ladder on the back of the vehicle may be blocking the secondary emergency exit window. If a ladder blocks a window that is labeled as an emergency exit, there is an increased risk of injury.
