Pleasure Way Industries is recalling 1,148 model year 2018-2020 Plateau, Plateau XL, Ascent and Lexor motorhomes equipped with a Fiamma F45 Eagle or Fiamma F65 Eagle awning.
The awning drive mechanism may fail causing the awning to extend unexpectedly without input from the user.
If the awning unexpectedly extends while the vehicle is parked, the awning may hit an occupant within its range, increasing the risk of an injury.
If the awning unexpectedly extends while the vehicle is in motion, there is an increased risk of a crash.
What to do
Pleasure Way will notify owners, and dealers will install straps to keep the awning closed, as a temporary solution, free of charge.
Fiamma will eventually provide a permanent solution.
The recall is expected to begin in October 2019. Owners may contact Pleasure Way customer service at (800) 364-0189.
