Chronology :

May 28, 2021 – The 2022 model year began for gasoline chassis motor homes.

August 31, 2022 – A dealership, Giant RV reached out with some concern regarding a step tread being loose from the bolts on unit # 764RP4439064 manufactured on 08/18/22

September 1 – REV RV continued to follow up with the dealer to get further details of issue.

September 9 – REV RV Quality and Engineering personnel were contacted regarding the field report details.

September 12 – A stop ship quarantine was issued by REV RV Quality.

September 20 – REV RV started a warranty claim review. No previous issues were found. Quality department launched an initiative to inspect all units on-site to evaluate the scope of the issue.

October 3 – Investigation of field units continued.

October 14 – A remedy was applied consisting of fasteners and adhesive to units that were not compliant. They were then released from stop ship quarantine.

October 27 – Collective analysis was performed of data from the field, engineering and quality.

November 2 – REV RV reviewed the data results with the safety committee. Results determined that at the beginning with the 2022 model year, a change to the installation location of the entry step treads resulted in the new operator missing the adhesive process on select gasoline chassis models. Step treads may not have been glued or mechanically secured to the supporting plywood structure resulting in potential movement or looseness making a repair necessary.

November 4 – REV RV sent recommendation to REV Corporate for consideration and review.
