Erwin Hymer Group North America is recalling 195 model year 2016-2018 Hymer Aktiv recreational vehicles, built on RAM Promaster chassis and equipped with a Continental kit (CK).
The exhaust pipe may melt the rear bumper cover and the taillight wiring, causing the tail light not to function, increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, the exhaust heat can burn anyone contacting the bumper cover immediately after the vehicle has been operated.
What to do
Erwin Hymer has notified owners, and dealers will install a new tailpipe that redirects the exhaust down, away from the bumper area, free of charge. The recall began on September 1, 2017.
Owners may contact Erwin Hymer customer service at 1-844-464-3735.
