• Grand Design RV LLC is recalling 1,662 2017-2018 Imagine travel trailers. The screws that secure the slideroom mechanism columns may shear, allowing the slide room to extend while the trailer is being towed. For additional information click here.

 • Riverside RV (Riverside) is recalling 146 2017-2018 Whitewater and Mt. McKinley travel trailers. These trailers were manufactured without rear-facing reflectors and have non-reflective tail lights.

• Thor Motor Coach (TMC) is recalling 36 2017 Quantum KM24 motorhomes. The power supply wire for the steps was incorrectly attached to a 50 amp circuit breaker instead of being connected to a 20-amp circuit breaker. For additional information click here.
