Summary

Triple E Recreational Vehicles (Triple E) is recalling certain 2002-2009 Invitation and Embassy recreational vehicles, 2002-2012 Regency, Regal, Senator and Topaz recreational vehicles, 2002-2010 Signature, Commander and Empress recreational vehicles, 2005-2013 Regency GT recreational vehicles, 2011-2013 MOT Trailers, 2012 Roughneck trailers (NT300), 2008-2013 Free Flight, Serenity (S24CB), Liberio (L24CB)and Free Spirit recreational vehicles and 2010-2013 Unity recreational vehicles. These motorhomes are equipped with Kidde Plastic-Handle or Push Button ‘Pindicator’ Fire Extinguishers that may become clogged, preventing the extinguisher from discharging as expected or requiring excessive force to activate the extinguisher. Additionally, in certain models, the nozzle may detach from the valve assembly with enough force that it could cause injury and also render the product inoperable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why is Kidde recalling products?

A: We are recalling certain Kidde fire extinguishers due to a potential safety issue.
