Mine was leaking not long after word of the recall came out, but weeks before the letters were to come out. I had taken pictures, so I knew that my unit was impacted, and my dealer jumped in before the July long weekend (let me drop it off with less than a week's notice on the second and I picked it up on the 5th), and told me to hang onto the invoice. They followed the remediation steps that were on the NHTSA pages that I saw early on which was to replace the unit and do a pressure test. We were headed out camping on the 8th, so the speedy service was very much appreciated.

It took a couple of emails back and forth with Jayco (and getting it escalated out of the service desk up to a management level); however, i was compensated for the repairs - The normal coat of the regulator (to Jayco I am guessing), the labor to change and the cost of doing the pressure test.

About five months ago I got the regulator recall notice. I sent the picture to my dealer and they ordered the regulator, three months later they called and said it was in and it was time for me to make an appointment, closest they had was two months off which was today. They replaced the regulator and both pigtails which was good. Jayco warranty department also told me about a bulletin notice on the furnace, it is not a recall but they said I should have it checked which they did today. All I know is they called it a sleeve that protected the wiring and my RV didn't have it so here we go again, they ordered it and said they would call when it got in. Here we go again!

Does anyone know if thereís a way for us to look for service bulletins like you mentioned?
It would be a good thing to keep an eye on.
As if we donít have enough problems that keep presenting themselves!

Replaced the regulator myself

I got tired of waiting. With the upcoming (now current) snowstorm in Central Virginia and a winter weekend camping trip coming up, I couldn't wait 9+ months. I read another post on this thread about going with Calore Equipment Inc. The other poster went with a high flow unit so I went the same route.
  • Cost: $111.42 ($85 product, $26.42 shipping)
  • Note: At the time of the order, they do not have the brass fittings available for the supply lines (in our out). However, the brass fittings from the defective unit worked just fine.

I cleaned the threads, wrapped with YELLOW 300 PSI PTFE gas tape, and installed. Then I installed the propane tanks and used a YellowJacket gas pressure testing device to ensure pressure. At first test, I was at 25 inches of water column which was WAY over where I was supposed to be between 11-13 inches of WC.

I took the plastic cover off of the front and slowly loosened the regulator adjuster. Unfortunately I almost completely backed out the adjuster until I got down to 12.5 inches of WC which is what the OEM unit was set for. Never the less, I got the new device down to 12.5 inches of WC and ran my 10 minute pressure tests on both tanks. Everything held at 12.5-12.8 inches. I then ran every appliance on gas: oven, stove, refrigerator, gas heater, and outdoor burners. At full load, it dropped down to 12.4 inches of WC but no flame outs or weak flames. When finished, it leveled off to 12.7-12.8 inches of WC.

I am happy with the MB Sturgis unit.

If I can get reimbursement then I will. If not, not big deal. I'd rather be out of pocket and safe then run with a defective unit and sleep on gas-fueled ticking bomb.

That is the recall notice for the regulator. There is a separate bulletin about the furnace sleeve. I had to ask my dealership service adviser about it. He looked it up and found it.

I replaced my leaking regulator back in August with an MB Sturgis because we were headed to the Colorado mountains for a month and winter comes early there. I found one at a local rv store for less the $60. I knew it wouldn't satisfy the recall so I called my dealer a couple of weeks ago to see what was up. The service lady said she had one for me and bring it on the 18th, today. Set the appointment for 1:00 and we were on our way home at 2:00. Since we are about 100 miles from them they have been really good with getting us in and out on the same day for the few times we have needed something.

Now to decide if I want to reinstall my MB Sturgis or keep theirs which is a Fairview. I have never heard of them so no idea if they are any better or not. I did find them listed at $104 on Amazon but that may be short supply pricing.
