Latest Dutchmen recalls

Dutchmen Manufacturing, Inc.

recalling 543 model year 2013-2014 Aspen 1400RB, 1500BH, 1600RB, 2110RBS, 2470BHS and 3010BHDS travel trailers;

certain model year 2013-2014 Coleman CTS14FD, CTS15BH, CTS16BH and CTS16QB travel trailers.

certain model year 2013-2014 Dutchmen 190QB, 282RBS, 286BHGS, 318RKDS and 816QB travel trailers.

Heat from the range burner may melt the propane supply hose. If the hose melts it may leak propane, increasing the risk of a fire. Dutchmen will notify owners and dealers will install a copper line to the propane connection in the burner, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2013. Owners may contact Dutchmen at (574) 537-0600. Dutchmen’s recall number is 13-195.

AFAIK They Don't, but to be on the safe side you could call dutchmen at the number supplied in the recall and quote the recall number and they could tell you for sure.

Why would there be no answer when calling the phone number mentioned in the recall and on the NHTSA website? It just rings and never goes to voicemail either.

Because there phone system is down.....I've been calling for 2 days - sent an email today and recv'd a call back within 1 hour - so you may want to try again on Thursday or send an email.

Thankyou for posting this! My wife and I have a 2014 CTS16QB and sure enough our RV dealer confirms we need the copper line upgrade. You'd think they would have done that before selling it.

Anyway thanks again!

Mine is a 2015 with a 2014 build date... better go look and make sure! Only thing I have used the indoor range for is pulling gas through the lines so the fridge would start.

Thanks Ken! Saved me the trouble of having to hunt it down.

Maybe I will make it home in time on Friday to check it out.
