Heartland Recreational Vehicles recalled 649 model year 2021 North Trail and Mallard recreational trailers due to potential safety risk.
The refrigerator roof vents were not routed properly during production.
An improperly routed vent may allow the refrigerator to overheat, increasing the risk of a fire.
In addition, exhaust gas trapped inside the vehicle can cause carbon monoxide poisoning, increasing the risk of injury or death.
Dealers will inspect the roof vent, and repair the vent sleeve connection, free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed September 16, 2021.
There have been no reported incidents or injuries to date.
