Quick fix tools like duct tape, wrenches, and cable or zip ties are sometimes the best solution, even if they seem a little cheap. Such is the case, according to Winnebago, for its latest recall.

The recreational vehicle brand has initiated a recall of 4,616 vehicles manufactured between March 2019 and October 2022 (2020-2023MY). According to the documents published National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

This is a big problem because one of the purposes of one of the clamps is to keep the line clear of the tires as it passes near the rear wheel well. If the line comes into contact with the wheel, it can wear, causing a hole and fuel leakage.

If the fuel is leaking near something hot or near an ignition point, it could be cause a fire. As a result, the manufacturer initiates recall and will be contacting customers from December 2nd.

Owners will be asked to bring them Winnebago View or Navion back to the dealer, where a technician will install the additional button cable tie rated at 130 lbs (59 kg) to prevent the lines from getting too close to the tires.

Winnebago will reimburse anyone who is forced to pay out-of-pocket to fix this problem. Those who purchased a newer View or Navion manufactured after October 13, 2022 will not have to worry about this issue. Fortunately for them, a new clamp and latch assembly was located at the top of the frame rail to prevent this problem in the future.
