The purpose of this Recall Service Bulletin is to inform REV Recreation Group dealers of the need to inspect, leak test, and if necessary, replace the service valve on propane tanks. Products within model year 2021-2023 Fleetwood brands Bounder, Fortis, Southwind, Pace Arrow, Flair, and Flex. Holiday Rambler brands lnvicta, Vacationer, Navigator, Admiral, and Eclipse Class A Gas and Diesel motorhomes. A list of affected motorhome serial numbers appear at the end of this Bulletin.

CONPIJION: On motorhomes affected by this recall campaign, the propane tank may have a service valve with the incorrect depth of the threads on the POL (Prest-O Lite) outlet as identified by Model Numbers 901 C3 and 901 C5 and Date Codes between 02X21 (February 2021) and 02X22 (February 2022).

Chronology :

June 27, 2022: A Field Safety Advisory from Engineered Controls International, LLC (RegO), Manchester Tank’s supplier, advised that RegO had identified a potential issue with the female Prest-O Lite (POL) threads on a limited number of RegO model 901C3 and model 901C5 service valves. Due to a manufacturing error, the POL threads for some service valves may not meet specification, which could result in propane leaks at the POL
threads.

June 29, 2022: Manchester Tank forwarded the RegO Field Advisory to its RV customers.

July-Sep. 2022: Manchester Tank reviewed its records to identify RV tanks that may have used suspect RegO service valves. On July 12, 2022, RegO issued inspection procedures for vehicles in service with suspect.

Manchester Tank forwarded the inspection procedures to its RV customers. Manchester Tank reached out to NHTSA’s Manufacturer Help Desk to discuss the service valve issue. On July 15, 2022, Engineered Controls International filed a defect information report with NHTSA (22E058). Manchester Tank investigated quality checks related to the threading issue and reviewed sales records for customers that may have received suspect RegO service valves.

Sep. 23, 2022: Based on the defect information report filed by RegO, a review of production records, and defect information reports filed by more than one vehicle customer, Manchester Tank determined to pass through a defect information report to NHTSA for RV tanks equipped with RegO’s defective service valves.

Manchester Tank is not aware of any fires or injuries related to this defect.

Nov. 2, 2022: REV Group was notified on recall 22E-082.
