It always helps if you provided the year, make and model number of the RV you're talking about. Or put that information in your profile or signature.

I haven't heard of any such recall. Do you have a citation for the recall?

Itís funny that you come here for an answer to a question and then tell others to google something.

Here is some information.

It appears to affect 2021-2022 model years.

Recall doesn't seem to affect any FR products.

We picked up our new MiniLite on Wednesday. As we did the orientation the dealer had a tech swap out the newly recalled LP quick disconnect so we wouldn’t have to come back….thought that was good service

This I saw from a relative and it had different data and did not list F/R . Looks to me that most every manufacture has purchased the Q/D fittings from the same place . Thanks for the link to the F/R data . I guess now we sit and wait .

I wouldn't sit and wait. Those QD's can be had from Amazon or Walmart for less than $15 and installed in about 10 minutes. Lot of models involved, could be in for a long wait going the dealer route. The supply chain is still suffering.

I have a couple in the garage. I am not worried about it at all. You have to wonder though where wally world,Home Depot (where I got mine) and others buy them from . Mine I have are only maybe a year old ! I cant use the Q/D with my new grill as I cant remove the regulator and you cant run 2 . I will let my nose keep a lookout for leaks !

Yeah I went out and looked at mine, even tugged and banged on it and it held.

From what I see printed on it, mine is a different manufacturer than on the recall but I'm not 100% sure about that.

Apparently new rigs were stop shipped and are now shipping with blank caps on the manifold until they can get the parts.

I'm not too worried about mine, I've used it a bunch of times and now beat on it and it has held.

Maybe I'll be better about turning my tanks off until we know what's happening. You're supposed to turn the tanks off anyway when traveling but I'm not too good about doing that.

My QD is marked gas-flow, not flextech.

Yes, Rockwood are part of this.

Interesting, I think I had a defective valve myself. I could smell a slight propane smell by the tongue but could never pin point it. I bought a gas leak meter and was able to narrow it down to the value. From initial inspection it looked fine. But when I took it off I could see a fine line crack. I bought another one and replaced it, no more leak.

Forest River recalls nearly 100,000 fifth wheel and travel trailer RVs

The quick disconnect fittings in the LP gas system may be cracked! Read the article from Consumer Affairs.
