An auxiliary solar charging port circuit may not be protected

Winnebago Industries is recalling 6,700 model year 2016-2019 Winnebago Era, Travato, Fuse, View, Trend, Aspect, Paseo, Via, Adventurer, Journey, Tour, & Grand Tour motorhomes.

The vehicles have an auxiliary solar charging port circuit that is not fused.

If solar panels are connected and exceed the amperage capacity of the circuit, the unprotected circuit can increase the risk of a fire.

What to do

Winnebago will notify owners, and dealers will install an inline 15-amp fuse into the auxiliary solar charging port circuit, free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners may contact Winnebago customer service 1-641-585-6939 or 1-800-537-1885.
