Dear Discovery Owners:
Fleetwood was recently notified by Tri-Mark Locks that they are conducting a Field Campaign to replace the existing lock assembly on certain 2000 & 2001 Discovery & Expedition motor homes built with an Atwood Door. This includes Discovery's manufactured between January 5, 2000 and March 14, 2001, and Expedition's manufactured between March 28, 2000 and February 16, 2001.
Fleetwood is in the process of providing Tri-Mark with information as to units involved. Owners of the affected units will be notified by Tri-Mark shortly.
Fleetwood is issuing a Service Bulletin to our dealer network within the next week advising them of the repair procedure.
