IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL
NHTSA Recall Campaign # 15V-009
Dear Entegra Dealer
This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Highway Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.
Carefree of Colorado has determined that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety may exist with certain Carefree of Colorado Latitude Awning mounting screws. Latitude Awnings manufactured between April 10, 2014 and November 4, 2014 have mounting screws that may not meet specifications and may therefore be more likely to break off. If the screws break, it could affect a support arm for the awning.
The vehicle, identified on the enclosed form, is potentially affected. For this reason, we ask that you immediately evaluate whether you have an affected unit so the condition can be corrected without delay. The parts as described in this letter will be provided at no charge to you.
To correct this condition, check the serial number and verify if the Carefree Latitude Awning installed on your RV is included in the recall. If so, replace the suspect component (mounting screws) with new parts. The actual repair work should take an hour to complete.
