Must say that recall looks very odd ie units affected 26?? Was last modified in November but the recall date is march 2014. Resolution to be determined. No serial numbers or model??

Called PT and confirmed my unit is not affected. They said it was a very small number. Best to email them your vin and ask. Dealer knew nothing. PT has the parts to correct from lippert. Involves raising trailer 1.5 inches and grinding off a metal edge.

Correct me if I'm wrong but with the awning motor there were two serial number series that were the bad ones. I read it in the awning thread it was serial #'s 306xxxx and 314xxxxxx that were the bad ones.

Jumped on the horn today and talked with factory. Mine unit has the recall for the slide out bracket rubbing the tire. They setup an appt with my svc dealer and sent parts and a new tire. Dropped rig off and will hopefully pickup tomorrow. They have been great so far! Will update with the fix status tomorrow. Thanks for this forum and bulletin as it prob saved me from a tire blowout Nd who knows what else.

What model do you have and when was it made? Were they able to verify all this with your VIN??

Mine is a 315rst. Was the dinette slide. Contacted factory first and I supplied them pics. Never gave then my vin but they knew who I was and found me in computer system so they must have my vin somehow. Mine is a 2014 and mfg 10/14

My tire is scraped up pretty good and I've only take it out about 150 miles plus delivery to dealer from mfg.

It was my understanding that it was not just 315 models but I'm not 100 percent sure. If I owned a crusader regardless I would be looking.
