The bulletin says the recall affects RVs built between Feb. 13, 2013 and April 9, 2013, btw.

Should we not, I'm working on a way to secure the awning to the trailer so we can still make our planned outing next Friday, May 17. One fix may be to drill a hole through the front awning frame and use a bolt to secure it; the other may be to run a cable/rope from the rear top to the front top of the awning. I'm not going to let this setback discourage us from our first outing!
Well, it sounds like our trailer was built about 1 week after yours and it is a whitehawk so i'm gonna take a gamble and guess ours is also a recalled awning. I did speak with my dealer and they don't know all the details yet but they don't seem to concerned. I also will not let this impact our planned trips but dont think I will do anything to secure it, but sure will be keeping a good eye on my side view mirrors. LOL Maybe there will be a chance (doubtful) they can fix before our next outing.

The pdf file is too large to post, but here is a link to the notification letter Jayco sent to the NHTSA giving all the details of the recall at: http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/acms/cs...3V168-9215.pdf. The sticker on my TT indicates it was manufactured 4/13 so I think it might be one of the affected ones.

Call Dometic and they will tell you if your awning is in the recall and if so will setup service to fix.

Well the camper/awning Gods must be smiling on us. We have been trouble free since June last summer and our awning is not included in this recall. That is truely a milestone for our trailer.
