Potential Number of Units Affected: 10
All Products Associated with this Recall: 2006-2012 Northwest Truck Camper
Manufacturer: Northwest Custom Campers
SUMMARY: Northwest Custom Campers (Northwest) is recalling certain model year 2006-2012 truck campers equipped with Fastec-brand door locks. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.
CONSEQUENCE: If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the camper at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury.
REMEDY: Northwest will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Northwest Custom Campers at 1-406-885-3662 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.
NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
