Thanks Hank, I realize that this is the Atwood recall. I was just making a general comment because the Gerard had been mentioned above.

This could explain the issue I had with a busted pipe just outside the Atwood heater...I'm glad they are doing a recall. I was stumped at how the water got that hot to melt the PEX tubing without tripping the high temp limit.

When we went back to pickup coach this morning, talked to Randy about recall. Not gospel, but as of now they have no idea how Atwood is going to
Address the issue. FR has not been notified of anyone being hurt in anyway because of the problem?

Hey Bob, my salesman in Elkhart told me that they do have plans for an xlt 43c, which I believe is an RB configuration. He said that he would send me info as soon as it became available. I will pass it on when I hear.

Well, crap... I just had my Girard Gen 2 replaced with an Atwood. (It's at the body shop getting the door painted today!) I just checked the model number/build date on the new Atwood and its been recalled.

I guess I will wait and see what they decide to do.
