Description of Defect:

On motorhomes manufactured with the RML855 (single door) fridge, the fridge exhaust, at the rear of the fridge, may be discoloring the wood frame. There are no heat deflectors installed on the wood framing to protect from heat generated when the fridge is in operation on LP gas setting. In the event the fridge would exhaust for too long, there would be a possibility the wood frame could ignite and cause a fire and bodily injury.
