Had the kit installed in my TT today. It's only about a 30 minute job. I watched the tech while he did the work.

You need to run your model and serial number through their website!
Their site says the recall is for units made up thru 2006.
My unit says manufactured in 2007 on the model number sticker beside
the door but when I ran my model and serial numbers by them, I AM included
in the recall.
My trailer is a Rockwood 2008 model purchased in Feb of 08.
You need to check your numbers!!
The correct website to check is

Also to be notied you must have the card they send out or your dometice customer id number for the service to be completed.

Without the number the service provider does not get paid and will not do the recall service.

Just hope to save some time as I learned the hard way.
