Fleetwood has issued recall 10219 (NHTSA recall 0V1058) which involves 200 model year 2001.5 37U coaches built between December 2000 and February 2001. The battery cable is routed too close to a sharp edge on top of the automatic transmission causing an abrasion to the cable insulation which could lead to an electrical short or possibly a fire.
Owners should contact their Fleetwood dealer to have this condition remidied. Dealers will inspect and replace damaged cables, if necessary, and relocate the affected the cables. Approximately one hour will be required to complete the work. However, because of servicing scheduling times, the service center may need your vehicle for a longer period.
Until the motorhome is inspected or repaired, Fleetwood recommends operating the vehicle at a low rate of speed. Owners also should be particularly sensitive to any unusual smells or smoke in the engine compartment. If you notice any of these conditions, contact your dealer or Fleetwood Owner Relations Group immediately at 800-322-8216. Make reference to recall 10219 and have your 12-digit Fleetwood Identification Number (FIN) available.
