Summary: Dutchmen is recalling certain model year 2013 Coleman 192 and Dutchmen 196 recreational vehicles manufactured from April 12, 2012, through July 9, 2012. These vehicles have been manufactured with the propane line in close proximity to the rear axle hanger which could be damaged by the rear axle hanger bolt during travel.
Consequence: If this occurs, a leak could develop, and in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire and/or explosion, increasing the risk of personal injury or property damage.
Remedy: Dutchmen will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, as necessary, replace and re-route the propane line, free of charge. Dutchmen has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Dutchmen at 1-574-537-0700.
