Safety Recall: 19V-172 2019-126

March 2019




This Notice Applies to Your Recreational Vehicle:   VIN Dear Valued Customer:

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

Jayco has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exits in certain Model Year 2018 Seismic and Talon fifth wheels.  

Reason for this recall The fastening method used to secure the fuel tank may be incorrect, which could lead to broken and/or loosening of bolts securing the tanks over time.   Once the braces securing the fuel tank fail, there will be nothing to support the tank.  Separation of the fuel tank from the fifth wheel, increases the risk of an accident, fire and/or property damage.
Recall Remedy An authorized Dealer will inspect the fastening method used to secure the fuel tank and replace them as needed.   The remedy is free of charge and depending on the inspection findings, the remedy could take approximately 1 hour.
What we need you to do Please contact a Jayco Authorized Dealer as soon as possible to schedule an appointment to have this remedy completed.

If you had this repair completed prior to receipt of this recall notice, you may be eligible to receive reimbursement for the cost of obtaining a pre-notification remedy of the problem associated with this recall.

If you take your recreational vehicle to your dealer on the agreed service date and the dealer does not remedy this condition on that date or within three (3) days, please contact our Customer Service Department at 800-283-8267.  If after contacting your dealer and Customer Service you are not able to have the safety defect remedied without charge and/or within a reasonable time, you may wish to submit a written complaint to the Administrator, national Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590; or call the toll-free Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-3274236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153): or go to http://www.safercar.gov.  Federal regulations require that any vehicle lessor receiving this recall notice must forward a copy of this notice to the lessee within ten days.


We certainly regret this inconvenience; however, your safety is our most important priority.
