Additional information:

Among the twelve (12) recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Lippert Components, Inc. (“LCI”) has recalled an estimated 14,383 model year certain Solera Smart Arm Awnings. Water may enter the awning control module wiring harness and cause the recalled Awnings to partially deploy unexpectedly while the recreational vehicle is being driven.

According to the NHTSA, if the awning deploys while the vehicle is moving, it can increase the risk of a crash.

LCI will notify the vehicle manufacturers who purchased the awnings and the vehicle manufacturers will conduct recalls to have their dealers replace the Solera Smart Arm controller with a new Smart Arm Controller, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in August 2018. Owners may contact LCI customer service at 1-574-538-4514. LCI’s number for this recall is 18-058-001.
