Winnebago Industries Inc. has recalled a total of 101 Brave and Sunrise model year 2001 units, according to the National Highway Transportation Administration (NHTSA).
Tekonsha Towing Systems also recalled 10,026 trailer hitch receivers that were sold between September 1994 and last June, the NHTSA reported.
Winnebago recalled the Brave and Sunrise units that were built on Ford chassis because they may have an incorrect liquid propane (LP) gas tank bracket. Dealers are to re-position the LP gas tank.
Winnebago began contacting owners of the units on July 19, according to NHTSA.
Meanwhile, Tekonsha issued its recall because certain Tekonsha/SurePull Towing Systems’ trailer hitch receivers sold for use on certain Chevrolet Blazer, Oldsmobile Bravada and GMC Jimmy sport utility vehicles were mislabeled as to their weight distributing capabilities, NHTSA reported.
Tekonsha, a unit of auto industry supplier Dana Corp., began notifying distributors and original equipment manufacturers on July 30 and it will replace the affected hitches free of charge, according to NHTSA.
