Jayco Hybrid Lock Recall Notice

We own a 2012 X20e and today received this recall notice: http://www.fastecindustrial.com/recall/default.html

Has anyone else received this notice? Since this affects the bunk-end lock, I'm inclined to ignore it. I'm not really concerned about the bunk-end locks creating a safety issue.

Just curious, how and when did you get your recall?

I got my recall last week in the mail with a letter from Jayco included. Reason I ask is because the link you provided talks about the bunk end locks and the notice I got talks about the entry door lock.

Is this something different? I will say this though, the lock cylinders on my bunk-ends can be cantankerous to work. May need to check these out.

Hmm... I didn't see anything in RollTideinWA's link that referenced bunk end locks, nor in the letter I recieved. Did I miss something?

I got the letter and it discusses the door lock, not bunk end. I'm hoping this will solve the issue of our door opening when traveling unless we lock the dead bolt.

The letter discusses the door lock, but the Fastec locks on my camper are the bunk-end locks based on the pictures & key codes. Maybe that means I'm not affected, or maybe I'm missing something. I'll check the codes on my keys tonight.

We received the same recall for our 2012 X20E which we just traded in. We were told that it did not effect our hybrid.

My brother and I own identical trailers 1 VIN # apart. He received the letter and I did not. From what I've read online it doesn't look like my trailer is invoked but I have to check.

I got the recall letter, I guess I have to read it again. I think it talked about the door lock but the number they were looking for on the key was the bunk end key?????

Received the lock recall notice for our 2010 Jayco 17z and checked it out today and made the following observations:

1) The squarish "FIC" labeled key pictured in the notice does not fit my door latch, it is for the bunk ends locks.
2) The key to the door lock and deadbolt has an oval shaped end labeled "Bauer"
3) Once the deadbolt is deployed with the key, the key must be moved to the 12 o'clock position to remove it and it cannot be removed from the 9 o'clock, (deployed) position.

Therefore based on the rather convoluted instructions I have surmised my lock is not involved in the recall. After examining the lock and knowing that some units apparently have the potential for a problem, I believe it would be wise to have the appropriate Torx driver for the lock inside the Jayco at all times in case disassembly is necessary.

We just went through the same process with the same conclusions, except I don't see a need to have a torx wrench on hand. We never lock the deadbolt with the key if someone is inside anyway.
